Teen works to help save lives in motorcycle accidents

Losing a beloved family member -- especially through a tragic accident -- can be a turning point in many lives. While some surviving family members may mourn and then try to resume a normal life, some may use the tragedy to attempt to make changes that may benefit others. One Pennsylvania teen is now working hard to help save some lives of other victims of motorcycle accidents.

Driver admits intoxicated driving led to fatal car accident

The majority of motorists who travel the streets and highways of Pennsylvania will arrive at their destinations without any mishaps befalling them.

The majority of Pennsylvania motorists likely assume that the federal government has strict regulations that determine the physical requirements truckers must meet in order to safely operate their large commercial vehicles. However, other than a few definite disqualifications, the physical fitness of an individual may have been decided based on a handbook that was deleted from the agency's website two years ago. Not having a standardized handbook could possibly result in an innocent family suffering physical injuries in a tragic tractor trailer accident.

Texting not the only cause of distracted driving car accident

The automobile is such a status symbol that a person's social and economic standing is often based in part on the year and model of vehicle that one drives. Partially in an effort to appeal to potential owners, many of the latest models are including an array of technological options that are marketed as a way of enhancing one's driving experience. Unfortunately, these options are often a deadly distraction that can lead to a serious or fatal Pennsylvania car accident.
