pedestrian fatality

Pedestrian deaths / fatalities / accidents

Sometimes because of jaywalking pedestrians, but often because of careless or distracted or drunk drivers.

A hit-and-run is when a vehicle does not stop after hitting someone or something. This is considered a crime. It is important to remind young and new drivers that they are legally obligated to stay at the scene of an accident they are involved in; otherwise, the penalties would be far more serious.
