California Pedestrian Accidents  El Cajon, CA - Pedestrian Killed in Crash on Interstate 8 at 2nd St.

Each year, approximately 1,000 pedestrians are killed in crashes that take place each year on California’s roadways. Additionally, more than 14,000 people will be hurt in pedestrian crashes. Many of the injuries that occur in California pedestrian accidents will be serious or even fatal in nature. Accidents involving pedestrians have a much greater chance of resulting in injuries than other types of crashes due to the fact that pedestrians have almost no protection from the force and impact of a collision.

Most pedestrian accidents occur at intersections or at night and in poorly lit areas. Pedestrian safety is an extremely relevant topic and government agencies in California have attempted to implement policies and programs to reduce the number of fatal accidents that occur in our state. Unfortunately, the number of deadly collisions still remain high and many innocent victims continue to be affected.
