Deadly Pedestrian Accidents in New Mexico
The number of pedestrians being killed in pedestrian accidents is on the rise. New Mexico has the second-highest pedestrian fatality rate per capita, behind only Florida. Pedestrian deaths in the state increased from 77 in 2016 to 79 in 2017.
Pedestrians have little to nothing protecting them in the event of a collision with a motor vehicle. In nearly every case, the pedestrian loses. The injuries sustained are often fatal, making these events particularly tragic.
