Car accident victim severely injured, recovery uncertain

As Pennsylvania residents ring in the New Year, many may be considering their hopes and plans for 2019. Some may set a personal goal to accomplish, while others may be looking ahead to warmer weather and booking a family vacation for the summer months. While certainly, it is enjoyable to look to the future, an unfortunate reality is that tragedy can strike at any moment, and a person's life can change forever if he or she becomes the victim of a car accident

Back to the future? Risk of a self-driving car accident

Though most Pennsylvania adults are familiar with the idea of an autonomous vehicle, many can hardly believe technology has made the idea a reality and that such a notion no longer falls under the realm of science fiction. New technology emerges almost daily but still has some obvious kinks to work out before self-driving cars become commonplace. Though much of the technology is developed using computers and data, human testing is required, and such testing has already caused a fatal car accident.

Car accident results in homicide charges

Pennsylvania residents have certainly put their lives in another's hands at one point or another. Riding as a passenger in a vehicle driven by someone else requires a certain level of trust, and most people assume that the driver will do his or her best to ensure that everyone in the vehicle reaches the destination safe and sound. Unfortunately, some people make bad decisions, and the careless actions of a driver can easily result in a devastating car accident.

Auto accident injures local children

Many Pennsylvania students rely on the school bus to get them back and forth to classes each day. While most bus drivers do their best to keep riders safe, there is still danger involved. One thing many parents may not consider is the potential danger a child is in while waiting alongside the street for the school bus to arrive. In these situations, a child pedestrian is at a great risk to be hurt in an auto accident

Rollovers a frightening factor in SUV accidents

Pennsylvania drivers have certainly noticed the crowded highways in recent weeks. Holiday travel on top of daily commutes can lead to traffic congestion. When road conditions are far from ideal, and winter weather may be a factor, drivers need to remain alert. SUV accidents remain a chief concern because the design of the vehicle can lead to an increased chance of a rollover during a crash. 

Bus accidents cause serious pedestrian injuries

Pennsylvania is home to several large colleges and universities. Many of these campuses are nestled in big cities, such as Pittsburgh. These cities often have several forms of public transit, like buses, to help residents avoid the hassle of maintaining personal transportation and parking. Unfortunately, bus accidents continue to increase in frequency across the state. 

Tractor trailer accident involves nine vehicles

Pennsylvania drivers are once again preparing for wintry weather. In a state that is no stranger to snow, ice and other weather related hazards, most drivers know extra caution should be used during the winter months. Not all accidents are weather related, and a recent tractor trailer accident was proven to be the fault of a careless driver.
