Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
More than 700 pedestrians are fatally injured in the state of Texas every year. Many crashes are caused by drivers who engage in reckless and negligent actions. When drivers failed to yield the right-of-way to the strands, change lanes without looking, or turn at intersections without yielding the right-of-way, they place the lives of other people sharing the road at risk.
Unfortunately, pedestrians are more likely to suffer fatal injuries due to the fact that they have no protection during crashes.
