Pedestrian Vehicle Incidents

Detailed nonfatal data over 2021-2022

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) has transitioned from an annual to a biennial (every two years) publication schedule. The final publication of a single year of cases involving days away from work estimates was for reference year 2020. BLS now publishes detailed data covering 2021 and 2022 for Days Away from Work (DAFW), Days of Job Transfer or Restriction (DJTR), and Days Away from Work, Job Restriction, or Transfer (DART) cases.

Pedestrians being struck by vehicles resulted in 325 work-related deaths in 2022 and 16,970 DART cases, including 11,640 DAFW cases in 2021-2022. This event type includes pedestrians and other non-occupants of vehicles who are struck by vehicles or other mobile equipment in normal operations, regardless of location. Specific injury events include:

  • Pedestrian struck by vehicle in work zone
  • Pedestrian struck by vehicle in roadway
  • Pedestrian struck by vehicle on side of road
  • Pedestrian struck by vehicle in non-roadway area

This infographic provides an overview of the nonfatal trends. The data on nonfatal cases cover occupational injuries and illnesses and come from the BLS Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses (SOII) for 2011-2022. From 2011 through 2020, annual estimates are available for the number of DAFW cases (with or without days of restricted work activity). Starting in 2021, biennial estimates are available for DAFW, DJTR, and DART cases. This page highlights both DAFW and DART estimates. The latest estimate period available reflects cases occurring in 2021 and 2022. Because DAFW data transitioned from annual reporting to biennial reporting in 2021, care should be used when comparing trends.
