Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
Pedestrian accidents could occur in the most unlikely of places, which is why so many pedestrians lose their lives throughout Texas every year. Often times drivers don’t mean to strike pedestrians, but when they are not on the lookout for potential pedestrians at any given time, they run the risk of accidentally ending someone’s life, especially if pedestrians are attempting to exit highways.
