Auto-Pedestrian Accidents Archives

Wearable devices may become the next issue in distracted driving

Over the last several years, leaps and bounds have been made in the development of mobile technology. Smartphones have become integrated into the lives of a large portion of California residents. Although this technology can simplify certain aspects of life, using mobile devices behind the wheel obviously creates a tremendous accident risk. As such, many states, including California, have passed texting-and-driving laws that forbid this technology while driving.

California drivers must take care when they are sharing the road with pedestrians. In many instances, a pedestrian accident involving a motor vehicle ends in death or catastrophic injury.

California fatal accident results in pedestrian death

Pedestrians are always at risk when they share the roadway with multiple types of motor vehicles. They must often walk very close to traffic, and they have nothing to protect them if a collision should occur. Sadly, tragedy sometimes strikes because of this. A recent fatal accident in California just before Thanksgiving led to a pedestrian death. The incident is still being investigated as authorities work to determine the cause.
