First responder seriously injured in truck accident

Firefighters are often the first to respond to calls for help during fires and serious motor vehicle accidents. They are trained to give medical assistance, help remove an injured victim from a damaged vehicle, and make sure debris and fuel are cleared from the roadway. Recently, a Pennsylvania firefighter responding to an accident became the victim of a truck accident himself. 

Man charged re fatal car accident

A passenger in a motor vehicle depends on the driver to be vigilant and provide safe transportation. When a driver chooses to break the law, he or she risks the lives of any passengers, as well as others in or near the roadway. Sometimes, a driver's negligent or criminal behavior causes a car accident that results in serious injury or death. 

Bus accidents can result in higher number of injuries

Pennsylvania residents can likely recall at least one time they have ridden a bus. Many children rely on buses to get them to and from school each day. Even for adults, a bus can be a handy way to travel in a large group or save commuters from having to worry about the expense of driving their personal vehicle. Though buses are considered to be a relatively safe method of transportation, bus accidents can result in high numbers of serious injuries. 

Charges pressed in fatal auto accident

Sometimes, a car crash is the result of unavoidable hazards, such as weather conditions or a vehicle malfunction. Usually, this type of auto accident is handled by insurance companies and will likely never end up as a legal matter in court. In other cases, an auto accident is the result of negligence or carelessness on the part of a driver. Pennsylvania has seen its share of both types this summer, and in the case of the latter sort, charges have been pressed.

Pennsylvania high on list for most motorcycle accidents

Pennsylvania ranks 4th in the nation on a list of states with the most motorcycle crashes. Motorcycle accidents have a much higher rate of serious injury or death than other types of motor vehicle accidents. Even if riders use proper safety procedures and wear a helmet, an accident can occur in the blink of an eye, especially on crowded highways. 

Pedestrian auto accident victim dies

Every driver's worst nightmare is being involved in an accident. In Pennsylvania, auto accidents claim thousands of lives each year. Serious crashes can result in permanent personal injury, or worse, and expensive damage to vehicles. When a driver is involved in an auto accident, state law requires that he or she pull safely to the side of the road and remain on the scene until police arrive.
