When buses and trains crash, injuries are likely

Thousands upon thousands of people use public transportation every day. They rely on this mode of transportation to get them to and from work, to and from shopping center, and to and from various other locations around the city. Without public transportation, there would be many people that would struggle to get around.

Pedestrian killed in accident prompted by police chase

A tragic car accident in Los Angeles that was prompted by a brief police pursuit has left an innocent pedestrian dead and a community outraged. Just like a few weeks ago, it involves the Pacific Coast Highway, and again, it unfortunately involves a fatality.

Could cars someday predict a driver's medical emergency?

One of the most amazing things about how cars are developing and advancing is that these radical changes can go anywhere. Your imagination can run wild with the possibilities, but one interesting idea has emerged: the prospect that our cars will soon have the capability to check our vital signs and health, and use that information to prevent car accidents that are caused by medical emergencies.

Key reasons why accidents happen, and what you can do about it

A major study was published in 2008 by researchers at the University of Michigan that largely has gone unnoticed in the years since. Part of this is because for the better part of the last decade, car accidents and fatalities related to those accidents were on the decline. But that all changed int he last couple of years. Accidents and deaths have jumped up in alarmingly large chunks.

2016 survey, national data show dangers of distracted driving

It should go without saying that distracted driving is an incredibly dangerous behavior. How could it not be seen this way? Drivers that engage in looking at their phones or sending a text while driving are actively taking their eyes and minds off the road, and instead focusing on emojis and social media. It's blatantly obvious that it is dangerous, and yet people still do it.

Investigation is crucial after a truck accident

Just like with any motor vehicle accident, no two truck accidents will ever be the same. The force of the collision will be different every time. The circumstances involved in the crash will be unique and one-of-a-kind, just like a fingerprint. However, the pain and suffering that the victims will go through after a truck accident will be eerily similar. Every victim of a truck accident will see their lives changed -- whether it is temporary or permanent depends on those unique circumstances though.

Establishing liability after a car accident

This may seem like a silly question at first, but: how do you prove liability in a car accident? From a subjective point of view, it may seem clear. When you are involved in a wreck, you have clear emotions and feelings of anger, and you may think the other driver's actions or behaviors out on the road make it obvious how they are at fault for the wreck. But from an objective and legal point of view, clear evidence needs to be established.

Will new program reduce distracted driving among teenagers?

There are plenty of statistics that paint a very scary picture about teenage drivers and how distracted driving affects them. First of all, take this broader statistic: car accidents are the leading cause of death for teenagers. Then consider this statistic: about 10 percent of drivers age 15-19 that got into fatal car accidents were distracted at the time of the wreck.

Fatal wreck leaves many injured as well

An accident in Orange, California left one person dead and many others with injuries. The details are still coming in with this story, as investigators try to figure out exactly what happened. What we know at the moment is that one car tried to merge onto the westbound lanes of Highway 22. For some reason, the vehicle kept plowing across the lanes and eventually collided with three other vehicles.

2016 figures continue trend of declining road safety

It may feel as though as we progress in the driving world, safety would only improve with time. Cars get better equipment; people are better trained and equipped to drive; and technology exponentially gets better. As such, you would think that driving fatalities and traffic fatalities would decline with this seemingly inherent incline in technology and driving experience. However, a new report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration makes it abundantly clear that such a point is not true.
