Pedestrian accidents in which children are injured or hurt tend to be particularly heart breaking. In many situations, parents or relatives have backed over a child who happens to be playing in a driveway. Young kids can be particularly difficult to see for drivers, particularly when the person is driving a vehicle like a minivan or SUV. Unfortunately, we’ve seen the tragedy families endure in these types of situations.
In 2007, according to the Department of Public Safety, 610 children 15-years-old and younger were injured and 13 were killed as the result of pedestrian accidents in Ohio.
