Not all personal injuries come from two cars colliding with each other.

These accidents happen surprisingly frequently, and often lead to significant injuries to the pedestrian. Especially dangerous intersections were noted in Philadelphia.

Pedestrians Get Hit By Cars All the Time
It is a sad fact that crossing the street or running alongside it are dangerous things to do. People drive recklessly, while distracted, and while under the influence of drugs or alcohol all the time.
Unfortunately, this makes victims out of innocent pedestrians every day. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), more than 150,000 pedestrians were treated for injuries they suffered when a car hit them in 2013, alone. At this rate, nearly one pedestrian is hurt every eight minutes in the United States. And these are just the pedestrian accidents that get reported to police: A significant amount of pedestrians who get hurt go to the hospital without ever filing a police report.
Pedestrian Accidents Are Serious
When cars hit pedestrians, it is almost never the case that the car comes out of the encounter worse off. Cars are made of multiple thousands of pounds of plastic, glass, and metal. People are only a couple hundred, and rarely have any protective equipment when they are walking along a road.
It should not come as a surprise that the injuries pedestrians suffer when they get hit by a car are often severe, if not fatal. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) found that 4,735 pedestrians were killed in 2013. This meant that pedestrians accounted for 14% of the fatalities in all vehicle accidents.
