Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
Thousands of pedestrians lose their lives on Texas roads every year. Unfortunately, speed and distracted driving are the leading causes of pedestrian accidents throughout the state. When drivers are not being responsible behind the wheel, they risk not seeing pedestrians cross the street until it’s too late.
Sometimes pedestrians contribute to accidents when they are not walking within marked crosswalks late at night while wearing dark clothing. However, it’s always the driver’s responsibility to be aware of their surroundings at all times, even in the most inopportune places.
