Mississippi Pedestrian Accidents
Pedestrian accidents are much more dangerous than other types of traffic wrecks. This is because pedestrians travel alongside fast-moving, large vehicles with absolutely no protection. If a pedestrian becomes involved in a traffic accident, they are almost guaranteed to suffer severe injuries or even lose their lives. Being injured in a pedestrian crash is no joke, and can land a person in the hospital for weeks or longer depending on the severity of the injuries.
Over 7,000 people are killed in pedestrian collisions in the United States every year. In Mississippi, there are more fatal pedestrian crashes than in many other states. More than 250 people were killed in pedestrian collisions in Mississippi in 2017.
