Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in California

San Diego, CA - Pedestrian Killed in College Ave Crash at Federal BlvdEvery year, California faces the tragic loss of thousands of lives in crashes, with many attributing to negligence. When it comes to pedestrian accidents, more than 1000 people die on our roadways. Many of these accidents take place right here in the Los Angeles area. Common causes of fatal pedestrian accidents include:

  • Drunk Driving: Operating a vehicle under the influence significantly reduces a driver’s ability to make safe decisions, impacting their focus and reaction times and greatly increasing accident risks.
  • Reckless Driving: Engaging in risky behaviors like erratic lane changes, tailgating, or ignoring traffic signals can lead to serious accidents.
  • Speeding: Driving above speed limits complicates vehicle control and shortens reaction times to road hazards, contributing to numerous crashes.
