A study in 2019 revealed pedestrian motor vehicle crash deaths have increased 51 percent since reaching their low point in 2009 and account for 17 percent of crash fatalities. The rates of pedestrian deaths in motor vehicle crashes per 100,000 people are highest for people ages 70 and older occurring primarily in urban areas. However, pedestrian motor vehicle crashes can occur even in parking lots as people tend to pay attention to their phone rather than their surroundings. Pedestrian motor vehicle crashes can result in serious injuries, the most common being head, pelvis and leg injuries.
