According to WREG, a tragic collision between an Amtrak train and an all-terrain vehicle (ATV) resulted in the deaths of two individuals earlier this month. The accident happened in Crenshaw on a Saturday night shortly before 10 p.m.
Since St. Patrick’s Day is on a Saturday this year, it’s reasonable to assume that the parties are going to be bigger than usual. More people will likely start drinking earlier in the day, and they will probably end up drinking far more than they did last year as a result.
Do you remember learning how to drive? The first few times you got behind the wheel, you were probably overwhelmed by all the factors you had to consider at any given moment, from speed to lane positioning to the space between your car and the vehicle ahead.
Despite the many innovative safety features that all new cars are equipped with nowadays, even a minor collision can result in debilitating injuries. Common accident injuries include whiplash, facial fractures, broken ribs, internal organ damage, and meniscus tears.
You have probably heard the term “defensive driving,” but have you ever stopped to think about the kinds of skills it might require? The National Safety Council established the first defensive driving course in 1964, which means nearly all motorists on the road today have had the opportunity to learn about this approach since the day they got their license. But how many have actually enrolled in such a course, and how many know how to apply its principles when behind the wheel?
Collisions between vehicles and pedestrians are almost always devastating for the pedestrians involved. People who are walking have essentially no protection from cars, and because of this, motorists owe a certain duty of care to those on foot.
The simple act of putting on a seat belt is a subtle reminder that riding in a motor vehicle is inherently dangerous, and there is always the chance of getting into a collision. There are no such reminders for pedestrians, though, and as a result, people on foot may rarely think about the potential risks of walking in or near traffic.
What do you love most about Thanksgiving? Although everyone enjoys the mouthwatering food and inspired cocktails, your answer probably has more to do with the company.
Riding a motorcycle is inherently dangerous, and when conditions are wet, the risk of getting into a collision only increases. If you ride frequently, though, you will likely get caught in the rain at some point.
