Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
Thousands of children lose their lives annually in the United States after being hit by vehicles. Most pedestrian accidents result from negligent driving, which means drivers are either distracted, under the influence, or fatigued at the wheel. It’s difficult for drivers to see adults crossing the street, which means it’s even harder to see children.
