Major injuries reported in California motorcycle accident

Because of their smaller size, motorcycles can be more difficult to see in comparison to traditional motor vehicles. As a result, drivers must remain vigilant due to the potential of causing serious harm to a motorcyclist. Unfortunately, a motorcycle accident in California has recently sent a man to the hospital.

According to reports, emergency workers were called to the scene of the crash just before 9:30 a.m. on a day in September. The motorcyclist was reportedly traveling east at the time of the collision. Police claim that the driver of a sports utility vehicle attempted a left turn into a shopping mall parking lot, resulting in a collision.

Wrongful death: 2 killed in accident involving drunk driver

The dangers of driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol are well-known. Despite having knowledge of the potential consequences of such actions, people in California and across the country continue to do so. Unfortunately, a recent fatal crash has led to an arrest. The alleged driver could also face wrongful death claims.

The incident happened late at night on a day in August. According to reports, police say that a 19-year-old male driver was traveling at a high rate of speed. The driver allegedly steered to the right, causing the vehicle to climb a steep embankment. The vehicle then returned to the roadway where it struck a center divider.

Wrongful death case possible after California crash

Most drivers in California are aware of how to decrease their chances of being involved in an accident. Unfortunately, there are some collisions that even the most skilled and experienced drivers cannot avoid, such as those involving wrong-way drivers. Police say that such was the case in a recent crash that could ultimately result in a wrongful death lawsuit.

The crash happened in the southbound lanes of a California freeway just before 3:30 a.m. on a day in late August. Police claim that a 33-year-old male was driving a vehicle north in the southbound lanes. His vehicle reportedly collided head-on with a southbound vehicle.

Wrongful death case possible after fatal California crash

Too often, reports of lives lost as a result of drivers who are under the influence of alcohol are on the news. Because of the potential harm that intoxicated drivers can cause to themselves as well as others they may encounter, much effort is put into educating the public. Unfortunately, a recent fatal crash in California appears to further illustrate the dangers of drunk driving. A wrongful death could potentially follow.

The incident happened just after midnight on a morning in August. According to police reports, a northbound vehicle driven at a high rate of speed crossed over the median of a California roadway. Police claim that the vehicle then struck two southbound vehicles, a sports utility vehicle and a sedan.

Bike accidents are rising, with older riders most at risk

In 1975, bike accidents in the U.S. killed an average of two children every day, while adult deaths were uncommon. Four decades later, the statistics are completely reversed. Fatalities among children have steadily dwindled while adult deaths have ballooned to record levels.

Bicycle deaths are rising, even outpacing the overall increase in traffic deaths. Why is this, with helmets, bike lanes and other safety measures? Increasingly, it's cyclists over age 40 who are killed by cars.

Wrongful death: Woman arrested after fatal crash

Many organizations, including those funded by the government, go to great lengths to inform the general public about the potential dangers of drinking and driving. Despite their efforts, people continue to get behind the wheel of a car while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Unfortunately, police in California believe that one woman's recent decision to drive after drinking resulted in a wrongful death.

The incident happened one August night. Reports indicate that a 20-year-old woman was driving a vehicle containing four passengers. She reportedly drove the vehicle on the shoulder of a curve and overcorrected. Police believe that the sedan crossed both traffic lanes before striking a boulder and tree before landing on its roof.

California car accidents: 2 killed, 6 injured in crash

Tractor-trailers serve an important role in the economy of the United States by transporting goods long distances in a relatively short amount of time. Most drivers are well-trained professionals. This is necessary because car accidents involving tractor-trailers potentially have devastating consequences. For example, two people were recently killed and six others injured in a recent crash in California.

According to reports, the incident occurred on a day in early August. While many of the details of the accident are unclear, witnesses reportedly observed a tractor-trailer swerving before striking two cars. Witnesses at the scene are said to have rushed to provide assistance to those involved in the accident.

Fatal California accident potential case of wrongful death

There is likely nothing more terrifying for a motorist traveling with children than to find him or herself stranded on the side of a busy interstate. Unfortunately, fears associated with such a scenario were realized for one woman in California when her broken-down vehicle was allegedly struck by a pickup truck. Four people were killed in the incident, potentially resulting in wrongful death lawsuits.

The incident happened one afternoon on a day in late July. According to reports, a woman pulled onto the shoulder of the road after experiencing car trouble. Afterward, another motorist, a man who was described as a good Samaritan, pulled over to assist her. Unfortunately, reports indicate that a pickup truck barreled into the back of the woman's car near where the two were standing.

Wearable invention shocks sleepy drivers awake

Driver fatigue is a bigger problem than many of us realize (or admit). Even by the most conservative data, drowsy driving is a factor in thousands of car accidents that result in serious injuries and fatalities.

A group of civic-minded entrepreneurs has developed a wearable device called Steer that would use electrical pulses to jolt sleepy drivers who are starting to nod off at the wheel. It could literally be a lifesaver for people on road trips, for long-haul truckers, and for shift workers and other sleep-deprived drivers.

1 killed, 2 injured in California: car accidents

Most people think little of relatively minor traffic infractions. However, something as simple as drifting out of a lane can result in serious car accidents. Unfortunately, a recent collision in California illustrates the potential harm even a slight miscalculation can cause.

The accident happened one morning on a day in July. According to reports, police were called to the scene of an accident just after 10 a.m. An investigation is said to have revealed that a van veered to the left of its lane, ultimately leaving the lane. The van reportedly struck a sedan.
