Oh, deer! Truck accident puts residents at risk

Pennsylvania residents know all too well that, when autumn arrives, so do the deer. For drivers, deer can be a surprise obstacle, as the creatures seem to pop out of nowhere right in front of a moving vehicle. Many roads within the state have signs indicating where deer frequently cross busy roads, but they can cross anywhere, and drivers must remain alert. Recently, a truck accident put an entire community at risk. 

Family of car accident victim speaks to judge before sentencing

When a Pennsylvania motor vehicle collision results in fatality, it is devastating for friends and family members of the victim. Coping with the sudden death of a loved one is difficult because family members have zero time to prepare such as they might in a case of terminal illness, for instance. Loved ones and friends of a 19-year-old girl who was killed in a car accident last year recently spoke in court before the judge sentenced the man deemed responsible for her death.

Bus accidents are especially tragic when kids are involved

Pennsylvania parents whose children ride buses to school certainly expect that the drivers transporting their kids will adhere to all traffic laws and safety regulations. Current data shows traveling by school bus is safer than trying to get to school by car. There is not much a bus driver can do about other motorists who happen to be sharing their roadways, however. Many bus accidents occur because drivers in other vehicles are negligent or reckless.

Crime and a car accident: Where the robber meets the road

Fans of action movies or television series that feature a police chase or vehicle pursuit may think it all looks rather exciting, as drivers weave in and out of traffic, dodging vehicles, explosions and other obstacles to catch the bad guy and save the day. While certainly, these scenes make for exciting television, in real life, a fleeing suspect can mean innocent people and local heroes could suffer injuries in a car accident. A recent incident in Pennsylvania underscores the danger a real car chase involves. 

Detective investigating motorcycle accident.

Pennsylvania students have gone back to school, and that means school buses are back on the roads. Drivers should be prepared to watch for children in or near the street, and remain alert for frequent stops. Recently, a school bus was involved in a motorcycle accident, and the driver of the motorcycle suffered serious injuries. 

Fire chief tries to help, gets injured in car accident

First responders save lives, and Pennsylvania residents honor and respect the brave men and women who put their own lives on the line each day to help others. Usually, first responders such as EMTs and fire personnel rush to the scene of a car accident to render aid to victims that might be injured or trapped. A recent story explains how a fire chief was injured while trying to stop a criminal.
