Pedestrian Accidents in San Diego
893 pedestrians were killed in car accidents in California in 2018. This was a 26 percent increase in pedestrian deaths in the state since 2014. The roads of California are particularly dangerous for pedestrians, considering that the pedestrian fatality-rate is 25 percent higher than the national average.
