Pedestrian accidents on highways

Pedestrian accidents are almost always severe, but they are deadly or even fatal if they occur on an interstate highway. Cars and trucks travel at much faster speeds on these highways, therefore, it is far more likely that a person will suffer severe or fatal injuries if they are struck by a car. This post will go over how these accidents happen and what you can do to avoid them.

Motor vehicle accidents involving pedestrians

Pedestrians are the most vulnerable part of the traffic system. Nearly 5,000 pedestrian deaths take place each year in the United States. Many of these deaths are a result of a motor vehicle collision, leading to fatal injuries for the pedestrian. Pedestrians are much more exposed to injuries compared to motor vehicle drivers, which is why the legal system protects them.

Bicycle accident kills Oklahoma woman

With drunk driving and distracted driving an ever-present threat, navigating Oklahoma's roads can be a dicey prospect. But as dangerous as it is to drive our highways and byways, biking them can be even more perilous. Where drivers are protected by their vehicles, bicyclists are completely vulnerable; a collision is likely to end up with the bicyclist on the pavement, in a hospital bed or a casket.
