Distracted driving allegedly at fault for fatal wreck

While the following story may be lacking in details, the content of the story is important for everyone to hear. A woman in Pennsylvania will stand trial after being accused of texting while driving prior to causing a fatal car accident.

Ending an unfulfilling marriage

Divorce is often portrayed as a terrible thing that every couple should try to avoid. However, it is unrealistic to think that every marriage will work out. Some people get married to soon. Others live long happy lives together, but learn over time that they aren't right for each other.

However, it is a pervasive sentiment that many people share, whether it be due to convenient preconceived notions or because it sounds plausible on the surface.

Road is cleared for self-driving cars to become more common sight

The U.S. House of Representatives made a unanimous decision recently, a rarity in these politically divisive times. Last week, the House passed a new measure that will allow auto manufacturers to release 25,000 self-driving cars per year out on U.S. roads even if they don't meet safety standards that other vehicles must pass before being deployed. The measure is meant to accelerate the rise of self-driving cars and, ultimately, reduce the number of car accidents out on the road.

Car may have been distracted prior to causing 4-vehicle wreck

A terrible car accident on the Pennsylvania Turnpike left three people hospitalized and the police searching for answers about the crash. The accident occurred near a work zone, where a van and a tanker truck were stopped. A red car was pulling up to the area and failed to stop. As a result, the driver of the red car tried to swerve out of the way, but the vehicle collided with a box truck, causing both of the vehicles to crash and, ultimately, become entangled with the van and the tanker truck.
