Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in Cincinnati, Ohio
Each year, pedestrian accidents leave more than 5000 people seriously injured. Between 2009 and 2018, more than 1100 people ended up passing away due to the injuries sustained in these unimaginable accidents. Pedestrians are far more vulnerable than most other people involved in accidents due to the fact that they are completely exposed during collisions. Pedestrians do not walk around with steel cages to protect themselves. As a result, they are more likely to sustain severe and fatal injuries and accidents.
In many cases, pedestrian accidents are caused by drivers who are distracted while operating their vehicles. Some other leading causes of pedestrian accidents in Ohio include drivers who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol, drivers who are speeding, and drivers who engage in negligent driving actions while operating their vehicles.
