According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, a pedestrian is killed in an accident involving a car every two hours. This staggering number reinforces the notion that vehicles and pedestrians unintentionally cross paths far too often, and the results are deadly. Both motorists and pedestrians can take more precautions to avoid collision.
In a collision between a car and a pedestrian, the unprotected person is likely to be seriously injured or killed. Common injuries to pedestrians include head injury, fractures, internal injuries and facial lacerations.
