Deadly SUV-Pedestrian Crashes on the Rise

I’m Ed Smith, a pedestrian injury lawyer in Sacramento. It is now more dangerous than ever to walk down America’s streets. After a decade of decline, pedestrian fatalities in the United States have skyrocketed, and researchers say drivers of sport utility vehicles (SUVs) and other high-performance vehicles are responsible for a growing number of the surge.

Though most pedestrian crashes involve cars, fatal single-vehicle crashes are increasingly involving SUVs. According to a May 2018 study released by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), deadly pedestrian accidents are growing at a faster rate with SUVs than with cars. Between 2009 and 2016, fatal pedestrian crashes involving SUVs increased by over 80 percent compared to 45 percent for all other types of vehicles.
