Deadly Pedestrian Accidents in South Carolina
Traveling on foot is a great way to get around but can leave you exposed to the dangers of the road. A pedestrian is killed in South Carolina every 2.2 days, according to the state’s department of public safety. Every 88 minutes a pedestrian dies in a motor vehicle collision in the United States, which accounts for around 6,000 pedestrian fatalities annually.
Because of the elevated height of the front end of the vehicle, sport utility vehicles pose a unique threat to pedestrians. As was previously stated, the majority of pedestrian accidents involve the front of a vehicle colliding with humans. As a result, a higher front end creates an impact higher on a pedestrian’s body as opposed to the lower extremities. Even while injuries to the hips and legs are obviously serious, those involving the upper region of the body have a greater risk of mortality than those involving the lower half of the body.
