Pedestrian 11%
Fires / burns 11%

trolling WISQARS is always illuminating:

WISQARS™
http://www.cdc.gov/ncipc/wisqars/


Launched by CDC in March 2000,
WISQARS™ (pronounced "whiskers") is a powerful, interactive database that allows easy access to injury mortality data that can be used for research and policy decisions. Since its debut, WISQARS™—which stands for Web-based Injury Statistics Query and Reporting System—has provided researchers, policy makers, reporters and the public with customized reports about both unintentional and violent injuries. In October 2001, CDC expanded WISQARS™ to include national estimates of nonfatal injuries treated in hospital emergency departments.
