Pedestrian accidents are almost as common as car accidents here in Arkansas and throughout the country. Because of the lack of protection, pedestrians generally suffer significant and even fatal injuries when involved in a motor vehicle accident. Pedestrian accidents can occur when individuals are trying to cross the street,walking along a sidewalk or even helping a friend to move a car off the road after it has broken down. It appears that the latter is what has happened recently in Arkansas.
On a recent Saturday evening, a college student lost his life. For unknown reasons, two men were pushing an SUV down the street. A female was behind the wheel, steering it in the right direction.
