Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in San Antonio
There were just shy of 8,000 pedestrian-involved accidents in Texas in 2018. 8% (643) of these accidents ended in the death of at least one person.
Within the state in that same year, 207 pedestrian-involved accidents included a commercial vehicle, and, out of that accident pool, 52, or almost 25% proved to be fatal, giving commercial vehicle vs pedestrian collisions a fatality rate that is three times higher than that of pedestrians vs any kind of vehicle.
It is essential to keep in mind that because of physics, bigger vehicles are more inclined to cause critical victim injuries, particularly if that victim is a pedestrian.
