New Jersey Pedestrian Crashes

Egg Harbor Twp, NJ - Cyclist Injured in Accident on Ocean Heights Avenue and Broadmoor DrivePedestrian crashes occur thousands of times each year in the state of New York. These collisions usually end in injuries and even death for victims. On average, more than 5,000 pedestrians are killed per year in the United States due to auto collisions.
