Hit-and-Run Pedestrian Accidents in San Antonio
Data shows that between 2013 and 2015, approximately 1,771 pedestrian accidents happened in San Antonio. Most accidents result in catastrophic or fatal injuries since pedestrians are not protected from the weight of large vehicles. Sometimes road conditions contribute to pedestrian accidents, such as limited walking space, large gaps between crosswalks, and poorly lit roads.
