Flying ice and snow can lead to a car accident

At the end of winter, nature seems to throw some crazy weather patterns into Pennsylvania. Snow, heat waves and ice storms are some of the strange and unpredictable weather the state receives this time of year. A recent snow storm has led local police to amp up their warnings about driving with vehicles that are snow or ice covered. Preventing a car accident by simply cleaning off one's vehicle is not only considerate, it is also the law.

Drivers urged to slow down to avoid a possible car accident

First responders and police are urging drivers to proceed with caution when traveling on Pennsylvania roadways. Several recent head-on collisions in one county have left four dead and multiple others injured. Authorities cautioned that many accidents are caused by drivers who are distracted, speeding or acting aggressively. Regardless, using caution while operating a motor vehicle can help to cut down on the likelihood of being involved in a car accident.   

Tractor-trailer accident leads to investigation of driver

Many large trucks can be seen driving on Pennsylvania's roadways daily, transporting goods to help keep America functioning and products available to millions of consumers. But tractor-trailers are very large and require a large bubble of space and constant diligence to operate, and those who travel around these large commercial vehicles must be aware of the dangers. Blind spots on the truck can be deadly for those unsuspecting smaller vehicles, and pedestrians often misinterpret the speed at which these larger trucks can travel. Pedestrians fare far worse than cars should they meet a large truck while it is moving, as the resulting tractor-trailer accident is often deadly.

Pennsylvania motorcycle accidents: Lengthy prion term imposed

As the weather warms up, many motorcyclists take to the streets to enjoy a peaceful ride, as Pennsylvania offers beautiful scenic routes. But operating a motorcycle comes with reservations for many, including the lack of security that a car would provide. With more motorists on the road with even more distractions to take their eyes from the road, motorcycle accidents are an all-too-common occurrence. With warmer weather making its debut, social interactions involving alcohol make the road an even deadlier place for bike riders.

4 vehicles and a semi involved in Pennsylvania truck accident

Operating a large tractor-trailer takes diligence and an awareness of what is around the large vehicle. Understanding the limitations of a big rig and the damage that it can cause is paramount to becoming a licensed owner or operator. When drivers fail to heed caution, a truck accident can occur. Four Pennsylvania motorists were unfortunate enough to be near the errant driver of a Freightliner and became involved in a crash.

Tractor-trailer accident on Turnpike claims the life of an infant

The Pennsylvania Turnpike is well-known by those in the area as a dangerous drive. High rates of speed, especially with regard to tractor-trailers, and the number of cars on the Turnpike at any given time can make traveling this route a difficult one. A tractor-trailer accident is unfortunately, all too common and can be the fault of either driver.

Pennsylvania teen seriously injured in auto accident

Obtaining one's license is often a rite of passage into adulthood for many young American teens. Many new drivers will often underestimate their skills and the attention that must be devoted to operating a vehicle, especially when the roadways are busy and teeming with traffic. This lack of experience and the belief that one is invincible can lead to an auto accident, sometimes with deadly consequences. One Pennsylvania teen learned this lesson the hard way.
