Florida county works to reduce pedestrian accidents

Florida officials all agree that while the state is an ideal destination for a growing population, more needs to be done to ensure the safety of residents and tourists. Many officials agree that the biggest safety issue for one particular city and county is trying to reduce the numbers of pedestrian accidents. The latest incident killed one tourist and seriously injured his wife.

Florida sees the highest numbers of pedestrian accidents

Florida is often the retirement destination for countless seniors. Unfortunately, it is also the location for the highest numbers of pedestrian accidents with resulting deaths than any other state in the nation. While Tampa and Miami residents are not in as much danger, the risk throughout the state is higher than average.

Fatal pedestrian accidents may lead to legal claims in Florida

Hit-and-run accidents are events that can easily make an already difficult situation more complicated than necessary. With pedestrian accidents, individuals who are injured in the event could suffer longer than necessary without medical attention if a driver does not remain on the scene to call emergency services or offer assistance. Furthermore, leaving the scene of an accident also results in an additional criminal element.

Pedestrian accidents: Hit-and-run driver returns to deadly scene

Losing a loved one in an accident is naturally a traumatic experience. However, cases of hit-and-run pedestrian accidents may exacerbate the trauma. Such incidents typically leave the surviving family members with many unanswered questions.

Pedestrian accidents: Early morning crash kills pedestrian

Pedestrians in Florida are vulnerable because of the lack of protection. While cars and trucks have features like airbags and seat belts to protect them, pedestrians are completely exposed to the impact. Pedestrian accidents can be deadly, even if struck by a small automobile at a slow speed.

Florida man latest victim of fatal pedestrian accidents

While traveling by automobile is much faster and more convenient most of the time, there are many reasons why a Tampa resident may choose to walk. However, though many may elect to do so for exercise, walking anywhere near traffic always carries the attendant risk of becoming a victim of the countless pedestrian accidents that occur every year throughout the state. Recently, this type of collision claimed the life of another victim.

Pedestrian accidents: Man killed by Jacksonville police

A man who was recently struck and killed by a police cruiser was initially thought to be homeless and suicidal. This conclusion, which later proved to be false, was made after the Jacksonville chief of investigations gave a witness account, suggesting that this information was true. At the time of the report, apparently no one had talked to the man's roommates to get a clearer view of the person who died in one of the town's worst pedestrian accidents

Pedestrian accidents: Woman's leg amputated after ATM mishap

A woman and her adult son were visiting an ATM when they were suddenly pinned by a car. The incident took place in a beach town some distance away from Miami, but these types of pedestrian accidents can occur anywhere. The crash was so horrific that the ATM surveillance video had to be edited before it could be released to the public.

18-wheeler causes second of state's car accidents in one night

Two people recently died in two different accidents along the same stretch of highway in the state. The second accident included nine vehicles and was said to be the fault of a tractor-trailer driver. Although not in Miami, it was one of four car accidents that took place in one Florida county within just a few hours of each other.

Worker takes valet-parked car, accused in pedestrian accidents

When a hotel worker decided to take a car from valet parking to run to the store, he probably knew he could end up in jail. The Miami, Florida, man likely didn't realize at the time, however, that he would be booked as the suspect in one of the area's hit-and-run pedestrian accidents. To make matters worse, the female who was struck in that incident died later at a nearby trauma center.
