The U.S. Department of Transportation estimated that more than 4,700 pedestrian lost their lives in traffic accidents or crashes in 2011. Sadly this statistic became a reality for one Hartford, Connecticut family recently.
Many Connecticut residents drive a car to get from point A to point B, for work, school and more. Most realize that freeways, highways and roads are shared by many different types of vehicles on a daily basis. When one gets behind the wheel of his or her vehicle, the prospect of being involved in a car accident likely does not occur to the driver or passenger. However, the reality is that every 10 seconds someone in the U.S. is involved in a car accident.
