San Diego County Pedestrian Accident Statistics
Some 3.3 million people live in San Diego County and it’s the second-most populous county and the fifth-most populous in the United States, according to the United States Census Bureau.
There is considerable traffic in San Diego on its many freeway systems and roadways. Indeed, there were 452 injury and fatality collisions in the county in 2020, according to statistics compiled by the Office of Traffic Safety.

“The freeways and roads in San Diego are some of the busiest in California,” said Attorney James Johnson. “However, the top two factors that contribute to injury or fatality crashes are often the same: alcohol and speed.”
