Though these crashes are often preventable, a large percentage of victims end up losing their lives. In fact, more than 900 fatalities take place as a result of injuries sustained in pedestrian accidents in California each year. In many cases, victims end up losing their lives in accidents due to drivers who are distracted, impaired, or acting negligently while operating their vehicles.
