Negligence kills, especially when pedestrians are the victim
Whether a pedestrian accident is fatal or causes a serious injury often depends on how fast the vehicle is moving at the time of impact.
Speed is a major factor in pedestrian crash severity. If you are on foot when you get hit by a car, your chances of dying increase significantly with every 10 miles per hour. It’s no wonder that the vast majority of Oklahoma pedestrian crashes take place on roadways with speed limits of 40 mph or higher.
Speeding isn’t the only factor, however. Distracted drivers are especially dangerous to pedestrians, as it’s quite easy for them to overlook the smaller frame of a person on foot compared to a car. Drunk and impaired drivers also cause many pedestrian deaths. Driving at night, too, is a key risk factor, since the first thing to go in low-light conditions is peripheral vision and pedestrians enter from the side of the roadway.
