According to data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, nearly 60,000 people were injured in pedestrian accidents in 2009. More than 4,000 people were fatally injured in a pedestrian accident during that same year.
Pedestrian accidents often occur because drivers are speeding, failing to yield or driving while distracted.
