Pedestrian Accidents in San Antonio
Between 2013 and 2015, approximately 1,771 pedestrians lost their lives in San Antonio. When drivers strike pedestrians late at night, most of the time it’s because they’re under the influence, distracted, or fatigued. When drivers are not one hundred percent focused on the road at night, they’re more likely to accidentally strike and potentially kill a pedestrian.
