There have been several pedestrian accidents in Reno and the surrounding area in the last few days. Like that accident in the previous link, thankfully there have not been just as many deaths from these accidents, just injuries so far. Another pedestrian accident in Northern Nevada happened the other day which, perhaps unlike this accident, appears to have been the fault of the pedestrian crossing outside a marked sidewalk. We see a number of that type of pedestrian accident in Las Vegas, as well, where people cross the street outside of a legal crossing area, like a crosswalk, and get hit. Sometimes, however, those accidents are still predominantly the fault of the driver if they were speeding in Las Vegas, driving drunk, or otherwise driving recklessly.

These two recent pedestrian accidents were in similar places. The most recent was around the Mill St and Yori Ave intersection. The other was on El Rancho Drive, just a little ways away. These were not areas named as the most dangerous in a recent in depth article on pedestrian accidents and safety, but perhaps they will be in future articles.
