Deadly Pedestrian Accidents in Albuquerque
Deadly pedestrian collisions are on the rise across the country, including Albuquerque. New Mexico has the second-highest per-capita pedestrian fatality rate, with Florida coming in at number one. 5,977 pedestrians lost their lives in vehicle collisions in 2017.
Pedestrians are vulnerable to suffering fatal injuries in the event of an accident. Sadly, many drivers fail to notice pedestrians, even when they use designated crosswalks. Surviving family members often suffer and are made to take on the resulting damages.
