Pedestrian accidents can range from trips, falls and being hit by a car. Anyone who is on or near the roadways and not in a vehicle is at risk for a pedestrian injury. Individuals who are hit by an oncoming vehicle are the third most frequent source of injury for pedestrians. That scary statistic is just a reminder that accidents can happen.
