Deadly crashes involving pedestrians take place every day in California. In fact, our state routinely ranks as the most dangerous place in the country for pedestrians in terms of the number of fatal pedestrian incidents that are reported.
Pedestrians are almost always at risk of being hurt in a crash any time they are on the roadways. A pedestrian crash can have many causes. Some of these causes relate to driver negligence and include: failing to stop at crosswalks or crossing area, failing to yield, distracted driving, impaired driving, and more.
