Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
Texas has ranked as the third state with the highest number of pedestrian fatalities in the nation. Texas has ranked third in line as the state with the highest number of pedestrian fatalities. The reason so many pedestrians lose their lives is often because drivers fail to check for them before making turns.

When this happens, they are more likely to accidentally hit and potentially seriously injure a pedestrian.
