Texas ranks among the ten most dangerous states for pedestrian accidents.
In 2018 alone, there were more than 5,000 pedestrian-involved crashes with over 1,000 reported severe injuries in the state. In Brownsville, 11 people died in pedestrian accidents, representing nearly a third of all traffic deaths in Cameron County, according to the most recent statistics. Many more pedestrians suffered injuries in collisions.
Pedestrians are no match for a car or truck weighing several thousand pounds, and a collision will almost always result in injuries to the person on foot. Often, pedestrian accidents are caused by a driver’s failure to see a person crossing an intersection or walking beside the road.
