Pedestrians and drivers are encouraged to always take extra precautions when going through an intersection for this reason.

Pedestrian Accidents Often Cause Catastrophic Injuries Or Death

Pedestrian accidents usually lead to multiple injuries for pedestrians. In many cases, these can be catastrophic or life-changing injuries. Sadly, in some cases, the accident can lead to the death of the pedestrian. Pedestrians are often thrown on impact, which increases the severity of the event. If the victim does survive the accident, they usually face a long recovery period.
