Distracted driving may have caused fatal truck accident

The state of Pennsylvania has strict laws prohibiting the use of cell phones and other mobile devices while driving. Though it can be tempting to check an alert, answer a call, or find a gas station while driving, drivers must use an appropriate hands-free device or safely pull over before doing so. Drivers may think these rules are a bit too strict, but research proves that even a few seconds of distracted driving can cause a fatal car or truck accident.

Being at fault for bus accidents can carry lengthy prison terms

A new school year is beginning across the state of Pennsylvania, and students aren't the only ones who may have first-day jitters. Waiting for the school bus can be an anxious moment for parents as well. Though it is time to turn a new leaf and begin a new semester, parents may still have lingering fears about the potential for serious bus accidents

Car accident claims 2 lives

As summer draws to a close, Pennsylvania roads are busier than ever. Families may be trying to squeeze in a last-minute vacation, or be out and about trying to clear their back-to-school shopping lists. With a summer that produced a near-record number of fatal car accident incidents state-wide, drivers are growing ever more wary of their surroundings, but a recent tragedy shows that a serious car accident is still just a turn away. 

Motorcycle accidents can result from unrelated crime

Pennsylvania drivers are probably aware that when they take to the roads, they must take proper precautions to avoid causing a serious crash. Paying close attention to traffic and following laws can go a long way to prevent injuries and damage to vehicles. Unfortunately, when drivers choose to participate in illegal activity on the streets, there is an increased risk of fatal motorcycle accidents.

Car accident results in manslaughter charges

The Keystone State is home to some of the most scenic roads in the nation. A drive through Pennsylvania boasts both rural and urban landscapes that could be the photo on a postcard. Though usually a pleasurable experience, Pennsylvania roads can also be dangerous, and there is always the risk of a serious car accident.

Bus accidents seem to be on the rise, latest causes injury

Many Pennsylvania residents rely on mass transportation to get from place to place. Part of the reason for this is that there are a multitude of people living in urban areas who have little use or space for a personal vehicle. Others may not have a driver's license and rely on trains, buses and other methods of public travel. Though convenient, riders are often at serious risk because bus accidents can be particularly devastating.
