Chicago pedestrian injury accidents a serious danger

Attention Chicago pedestrians! Serious injury accidents happen all the time in Illinois. In 2010, a total of 114 people were killed and 5,013 were injured in pedestrian accidents in Illinois, according to the Illinois Department of Transportation. Most pedestrian accidents (3,114) happened on busy “city streets and roads” in major urban centers like Chicago. That might explain why Chicago is the 38th most dangerous city in America for pedestrians, according to a recent New York Times article. Other American cities high on the list include Atlanta (11th), Birmingham, Alabama (16th), Baltimore (32nd) and Washington, D.C. (34th).
