As driverless cars are being tested on roads in California, the number of accidents are adding up.

Pedestrians in wheelchairs at higher risk in accidents

The roads of many California cities can be particularly unforgiving for pedestrians, and a new study suggests that those in wheelchairs may be especially vulnerable.

The study was based on NHTSA accident statistics recorded between 2006 and 2012, and it was published in the online medical journal BMJ Open.
