Pedestrian Accidents in Ohio  Dayton, OH – Worker Struck by Car at UD Arena Friday Night

Pedestrian crashes happen in Ohio on a daily basis. According to statistics from the Ohio Department of Public Safety, more than 3,000 crashes involving pedestrians are reported annually in our state. Pedestrian accidents have a much greater potential than other types of collisions to cause serious harm. This is because a pedestrian crash happens suddenly and the pedestrian has no protection from the force of the collision. Ultimately, more than 80% of all Ohio pedestrian accidents will result in injuries, compared to less than a 30% injury rate for accidents involving two or more cars.
