Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in Maryland
Fatal pedestrian accidents are the cause of countless deaths each year in Maryland. Unfortunately, there are many instances where innocent people lose their lives as a result of drivers who fail to operate their vehicles with care and consideration.
There are several factors that continue to contribute to the high rate of accidents we see. Leading factors include:
- Failure to yield: When drivers do not yield the right of way to motorists, they can cause crashes that take the lives of innocent people.
- Run red lights: When drivers run red lights at intersections, they place the lives of innocent pedestrians at risk of losing their lives.
- Speeding: When drivers are traveling too fast, they run the risk of losing control of their vehicle and striking pedestrians in the area.
