Mississippi Pedestrian Crashes
When it comes to traffic collisions, pedestrians are the most vulnerable people on the road. Pedestrians travel totally unprotected which puts them at risk for severe injuries and even death if they become involved in a traffic accident. From 2017 to 2018, Mississippi saw a 42% increase in the number of pedestrian-related deaths that happened on their roads. Every year, hundreds of people are killed in pedestrian crashes in Mississippi.
