New Study Reveals Pedestrian Deaths Are Been Driven By SUVs

According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), pedestrian deaths have jumped 46 percent since reaching their lowest point in 2009, as pedestrian crashes have become both deadlier and more frequent. The increase has been mostly in urban or suburban areas, at non intersections, on busy roads designed mainly to funnel vehicle traffic toward freeways and in the dark, a new IIHS study shows. Crashes were increasingly likely to involve SUVs and high-horsepower vehicles.
