Fatal Pedestrian Crashes in Illinois
When a pedestrian is involved in a crash with a motor vehicle, the pedestrian always loses. There is nothing protecting a pedestrian from the full impact of a serious collision. It’s a sad fact that many drivers fail to share the road as they should with those traveling on foot.
There were over 3,130 pedestrian crashes reported in Illinois in 2009. While other kinds of traffic fatalities on decreasing, pedestrian deaths are on the rise across the country. When a pedestrian is killed in a crash, they leave behind family members who have to take on the resulting damages.
