Motorcycle accidents have high fatality rate

Many motorcycle enthusiasts have a difficult time explaining the feeling that they get when they hit the open road to a person that has never tried it. For many, a motorcycle ride is a favorite activity. A bit dangerous by nature, riding a motorcycle leaves bikers relatively exposed to the elements and other vehicles. Even if a motorcycle rider wears a helmet and other protective gear and does his or her best to drive in an alert and courteous fashion, motorcycle accidents understandably have a higher rate of fatality than accidents involving other kinds of passenger vehicles. 

Rush to save a life causes car accident

Pennsylvania drivers know that when a rescue vehicle such as a fire truck, police car or ambulance hits the lights and sirens, other drivers should pull off to the side of the road as quickly and safely as they can. When an ambulance is carrying a victim in need if emergency treatment, every second counts. Rescue workers do their best to reach the hospital as soon as possible, but a recent rescue attempt actually caused a car accident

Small car, big damage: car accident warrants highway closure

As the leaves begin to display brilliant colors that signal long dark nights and crisp cool weather, the Keystone State readies itself for the upcoming holiday season. This time of year, driving through Pennsylvania can be both beautiful and dangerous. As the temperatures dip and the weather becomes temperamental, drivers need to be wary of road conditions. Driving, even in ideal conditions, can result in a serious car accident that potentially affects a victim for a long time to come. 

Motorcycle accidents put a damper on autumn fun

The air is crisp, and the autumnal foliage is nearing its most picturesque phase. For motorcycle enthusiasts in Pennsylvania, this may be the best time of the year to take a nice ride before winter weather and the holiday season take hold. Unfortunately, nice weather and beautiful views do not curb the potential for motorcycle accidents

Teen Trouble: Wayward youths cause serious car accident

Teens have a tendency to find trouble, and when bad behavior gets behind the wheel, innocent people might not see it coming. Recently, a pair of Pennsylvania teens went on a bit of a crime spree, first stealing a car, then running from the police and causing a serious car accident. Unfortunately, the teens have now learned a lesson about the dangers of breaking the law. 

Car accident involves different sort of lanes

Like anywhere else across the nation, Pennsylvania roads can be dangerous. While most accidents are caused by driver error, weather conditions or other relatively common hazards, a crash is occasionally caused by a person committing a crime. A recent car accident in the Keystone State left a local community bewildered. 

Before riding, consider this information re motorcycle accidents

Sunshine and clear skies often beckon Pennsylvania motorcycle enthusiasts to go for a ride. In addition to riding for the pure fun of it all, many motorcyclists choose this form of transportation to commute to and from work nowadays. It saves gas money and often alleviates stress when trying to find a parking spot, as well. Sadly, however, motorcycle accidents are a common occurrence on state highways, so anyone considering this type of travel will want to review collision information before doing so.

SUV accident involving school bus shakes community

Autumn has officially arrived in Pennsylvania, and the excitement of a new school semester may have waned a bit. Students and parents have by now settled into a routine, and mundane moments like packing a lunch and catching the bus are just part of a normal day. Drivers might have also become less vigilant, and a recent SUV accident demonstrates how quickly such a mistake can cause injury or death.
