Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
Not many pedestrian fatalities occur in Edna annually, but when they do, the cause is often distracted driving, especially if the accident occurs late at night. When drivers fail to fully engage in the road ahead of them, they’re almost always likely to seriously harm a pedestrian. Even though pedestrian accidents only take a few seconds to occur, the results could be long-lasting. There are some cases where pedestrians never fully recover from their injuries after being struck by vehicles.
