Pedestrian accidents on Long IslandGARDEN CITY PARK, NY- According to longisland.news12.com, a woman was struck by a vehicle and seriously in Garden City Park.

The driver, identified as a 60-year-old man, was traveling west at the time of the crash. The man remained at the scene of the accident and police state that they do not expect any criminal activity in relation to the accident.

The incident closed down the Jericho Turnpike in both directions for over four hours.

New York is one of just five states that together account for 43 percent of all fatal pedestrian accidents. In 2017, 115 people were killed in pedestrian incidents in New York. Pedestrians face the greatest risks when they are in cities.

New York State has invested $110 million into a Pedestrian Safety Action Plan which uses a combination of methods to decrease the number of pedestrians killed in the state. The plan includes law enforcement efforts, engineering solutions, and education to make pedestrians safer on the state’s roadways. The plan targets the areas that present the greatest risks and where pedestrian accidents occur most frequently.

Eight of the most dangerous communities for pedestrians are located on Long Island.

Across the United States, pedestrian fatalities have risen to levels that are at a 25-year high. Some possible reasons for the spike in fatalities include a rise in drugged driving, mostly from marijuana use, and the prevalence of smartphones which cause many cases of distracted driving.
