Beer truck crashes, driver suffers minor injuries

More than a month ago, we wrote a post about four trucks being involved in an accident on the Pennsylvania Turnpike. There's no information about injuries to the people involved in the crash, and little else to go on in the story. Today, we want to continue the theme of truck accidents on this blog by discussing another wreck -- but one that centers on the cargo being carried by the truck at the time of the accident.

Pennsylvania Turnpike site of 4-truck accident

The Pennsylvania Turnpike was the site of a four-vehicle accident, where all of the vehicles involved were large trucks. Two tractor trailers and two box trucks were involved in the crash, and there are no reports about injuries to the drivers and people involved. In fact, there are almost no details about the crash at all. The one thing we do know is that the northbound lanes were closed for a period of time.

Accident on Turnpike involves 3 trucks and 1 car

A major motor vehicle accident on the Pennsylvania Turnpike in Bensalem, Pennsylvania left four vehicles with damage. The wreck itself hasn't been fully explained yet, but what we do know is that three trucks and one other vehicle were involved. The other vehicle ran into the back of one of the trucks, and then behind that crash the two other trucks collided. There are few other details here, so unfortunately that sparse explanation will have to suffice for now.

Self-driving cars with medical monitoring could be the future

How would you feel if your car was constantly aware of your medical condition and overall health? Would that feel like a good thing, one that made you feel safer and better about your life? Or would it feel like a violation of your privacy, and on some level a little bit weird? No matter how you feel, the prospect of such a vehicle is very real in the coming decades. As self-driving cars continue to be developed and researched, new systems and ideas are taking shape -- and a medically-monitoring autonomous vehicle is just one of these ideas.

Prepare yourself for what comes after a motor vehicle accident

The days that follow a car accident will be stressful and confusing ones for the victims, whether they may or may not be at fault. They will have a lot of questions about their health, their vehicle, their legal situation, and what it all means for them and their family. This fear and uncertainty is perfectly understandable, and today we want to discuss a few common questions that people might have after a car accident in an attempt to quell some of those fears.

The many different injuries caused by car accidents

As we have outlined in many of our posts recently, car accidents pose serious threats to people out on the road, and they continue to happen at an incredible pace. Many people will be affected everyday as a result of car accidents, and some will even lose their lives. But for the ones who survive the accidents, moderate, severe, or even catastrophic injuries may await them. With that in mind, let's discuss some of the injuries that can be suffered by car accident victims.

Pennsylvania car accident leaves many in hospital

Five people were injured in a car accident in Fayetteville, Pennsylvania recently after one vehicle failed to stop at an intersection and plowed into the driver's side door of another vehicle. The crash happened in the middle of the day a few weekends ago. The four people in the vehicle were hospitalized for their injuries, though three of them did not appear to be in serious condition. The driver of the struck vehicle was listed as having possibly suffered serious injuries.

On liability and car accidents

An obviously critical factor after any motor vehicle accident is the concept of liability. Who is at fault in a motor vehicle accident? What does that liability mean for the victims? What happens if there is civil litigation after a car accident? These are important questions, and it is always better for them to be answered with an attorney by your side.

Is there an answer to the increasing fatal accident rate?

Motor vehicle accidents are the talk of the town, and for good reason in the wake of a shocking new report from the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The new statistics come from a review of the 2016 data, and it shows yet another startling increase in the number of deaths that are happening in accidents on the road.
