This year, 14 people have died while walking in San Diego. This was the total number of deaths last year, the highest rate in a decade, and we still have four months remaining. Just last week two people walking were injured with life threatening injuries, and a third died. Earlier this week, a bicyclist was seriously injured in North Park. He is in the hospital in critical condition.
