ATLANTA (AP) State data shows that more pedestrians in Georgia died after being hit by a vehicle last year than in any other year since 1997. <br />
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that 2013 was the second consecutive year of rising pedestrian deaths in Georgia, though the total number of pedestrian crashes decreased. <br />
Last year saw 182 people killed statewide after being hit by vehicles. So far this year, 67 pedestrians have died, a 12 percent increase over the same period in 2013. <br />
Roughly half of the deadly crashes involving pedestrians happen in metro Atlanta, where clogged multi-lane roads frequently lack sidewalks and safe crossing areas for those on foot. <br />
