School Bus Kills Pedestrian in OFallon
Roadways are shared by a variety of travelers including pedestrians. Pedestrian accidents claimed the lives of 4,432 individuals in 2011 and injured an additional 69,000, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The death toll is not as great as compared to car accidents, but the number is still alarming. The NHTSA encourages all pedestrians to follow safety precautions such as using sidewalks and crosswalks when available and wearing reflective clothing. Even the safest pedestrian can be injured or killed in an accident due to the negligence of drivers. If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a pedestrian accident, it is important to contact an experienced Illinois pedestrian accident attorney.
