A Pennsylvania parent might have trouble explaining his or her career to a child. Families often exchange stories about each other's days, and while parents can relate to stories told by children about a day at school, a child might have trouble imagining what a parent's day at work looks like. Recently, one father decided to give his son an up close look at his chosen career. It ended in tragedy when the boy became the victim of a fatal truck accident.
Pennsylvania drivers that have ever traveled a busy interstate can vouch for the fact that there are always large trucks whizzing by with the regular traffic. While many truck drivers go out of their way to make safety a priority, some drive in a dangerous manner that increases the risk of a truck accident. Unfortunately, it has come to light that when a truck accident happens, it is often the responsibility of the driver involved to report any pending charges to his or her employer.
Many Pennsylvania drivers get nervous when they must travel on a highway. The high speeds and heavy traffic can result in crashes. A truck accident can be particularly devastating due to the size of the truck.
Being sandwiched between two big rigs on a Pennsylvania highway is a scary experience. A semi truck accident between a big rig and a passenger car often serves as a stark reminder of the vulnerability of drivers and passengers occupying smaller vehicles in these situations.

Many Pennsylvania residents may think that if they are seated in a parked car, they are relatively safe. Unfortunately, even if a person's vehicle is appropriately stopped in a parking spot, the occupants of the vehicle can become the victims of a truck accident.

Pennsylvania residents may consider themselves fortunate to live in a part of the country that can quickly turn into a winter wonderland. While certainly, snow and ice can be pretty, they may be best enjoyed from the comfort of home. Driving during the winter can be stressful, and with decreased visibility and slippery roads, drivers have every reason to fear a serious car or truck accident.
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.
A wedding is typically one of the most memorable and important life events a person may ever experience. For many Pennsylvania couples, their wedding day is the beginning of a wonderful life as a united family. In a tragic twist of fate, a truck accident not only ruined their wedding day but, far worse, claimed their young lives.
Winter is extending its icy reach toward Pennsylvania, but the holiday shopping season is just heating up.
