Pedestrian Accidents in Georgia
Pedestrian accidents are known for being some of the most severe accidents that occur on Georgia roads. In fact, they are known for being so severe that they cause hundreds of fatalities in the state each year. In 2018 alone, it was determined that over 260 pedestrians were killed as a result of these accidents. Thousands of people were involved in these accidents as well, with many suffering from serious injuries. Pedestrians have no protection from harm, which means that they are most likely to lose their lives in these accidents.
