Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
Between 2014 and 2015, a 15 percent increase in pedestrian fatalities occurred throughout Texas. The leading cause of these accidents is often distracted driving, which occurs more frequently than it should. Drivers often get distracted by their cell phones, fatigue, and much more. It only takes a few seconds of a distraction for a driver to accidentally strike a pedestrian and potentially leave them with severe, catastrophic, or fatal injuries.
