Pedestrian and Bicycle Accidents
Pedestrians and cyclists face dangerous road conditions throughout Missouri. Despite their well-defined road rights and marked crossings, pedestrians and cyclists are still victims of serious injury and fatal accidents in crosswalks, shoulders and intersections.
According to the most recent statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 4,092 pedestrians and 630 cyclists were involved in fatal accidents while nearly 60,000 pedestrians and more than 50,000 cyclists were involved in injury accidents in 2009.
People included in these statistics are joggers, shoppers, children at play, bike commuters, recreational bike riders and other innocent victims who were injured by the negligence of inattentive, distracted or unlawfully acting motor vehicle drivers.
