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.

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.

Fatal car accidents can lead to complicated litigation

It may not be something anyone wants to think about, but when a car accident happens, there is a chance that the wreck is devastating enough to cause fatal injuries to any of the people involved in the crash. When a person dies in a motor vehicle accident, their loved ones will want to know the circumstances of the crash, and they may pursue a wrongful death lawsuit against the driver that is at fault for the crash.

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.

Helmet camera helps catch reckless driver

We've talked about motorcycle accidents on this blog before. They are a huge problem because the motorcyclists are often left with serious or fatal injuries. Motorcycles simply have very few safety features, and there aren't many protective options that motorcyclists have other than a helmet, gloves, and some padded clothing.
