Deadly Pedestrian Crashes in Florida

Sarasota, FL - Pedestrian Killed in Accident at University Pkwy & Kentucky StAccording to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, pedestrians are 1.5 times more likely than passenger car occupants to be killed in a vehicle collision. Despite lower overall mortality rates, the number of pedestrians killed or injured in automobile accidents is increasing year after year. In the United States, a pedestrian was killed every 88 minutes on average in 2017. In Florida, pedestrians are particularly susceptible. The state has a horrible reputation as a risky destination. Protecting someone walking from the full impact of a crash is challenging. As a result, pedestrians are more likely to sustain serious injuries.
