Everyday There Are Pedestrian Accidents In The Tampa Area
This is a very unusual pedestrian accident since it is unknown why the man was lying on the road before being struck by the pickup truck. However, pedestrian accidents in the Tampa area are not uncommon. In fact, they are one of the leading causes of personal injury in the area.
Many people visit the Tampa area for recreation and entertainment. The number of visitors that this area has increases the amount of pedestrian traffic in many areas. Because of this, there are more pedestrian accidents. To avoid these accidents, pedestrians are encouraged to always:
* Cross the street at designated areas
* Never dart out between cars on foot or bicycles
* Wear reflective clothing if you are going to be out at night
