Unfortunately, sharing the road can be especially dangerous for pedestrians. According to the Texas Department of Transportation’s Annual Summary Report, 5,366 pedestrian crashes occurred in 2021 – of those 824 were fatal.

Vehicle-on-pedestrian collisions occur when a person is walking and is hit by a motor vehicle. The pedestrian in these situations can experience life-changing trauma and injury. Accidents can include:

  • Car accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Bus accidents
  • Crosswalk accidents
  • Sidewalk injuries
  • Bench injuries

Motor vehicles have an obligation to watch out for pedestrians. When any type of motor vehicle fails to yield to a pedestrian, the injuries can be catastrophic.

One unfortunate cause of pedestrian accidents is cell phone usage. Distracted driving can cause collisions and pedestrians are the most vulnerable to distracted drivers.
