Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in Missouri

St Louis, MO – Jeremiah Williams Loses Life in Pedestrian Crash on W Florissant Ave near Ferguson AveEvery year, more than 1100 people die in motor vehicle accidents in the state of Missouri. Many of these people are not traveling inside vehicles at all. When pedestrians are struck by vehicles, they are at a significantly increased risk of suffering catastrophic and fatal injuries. This is due to the fact that they have nothing to protect them during their accidents.

Unfortunately, we see many pedestrians lose their lives due to the negligent actions of drivers. Some of the leading causes of fatal pedestrian accidents in our state include:

  • drivers who are distracted
  • drivers who are impaired by drugs or alcohol
  • drivers who failed to yield the right of way to others
  • drivers who make turns without checking for pedestrians

When drivers engage in these and other reckless actions, they placed the lives of others around them at risk.
