Multi-vehicle car accident sends 5 to hospital

West Virginia police say that the large truck involved in a fatal accident was owned by a company that had failed multiple inspections. At least two people were killed in the wreck, and several others suffered severe injuries. Unfortunately, such outcomes are not uncommon for this type of car accident. 

Pedestrians: Watch out for SUVs

If you’re like most Americans, you probably have lots of friends who drive SUVs. You may even drive one yourself. There are lots of reasons to drive an SUV: a better view of the road, plenty of leg room and reduced chance of injury if you’re in a front- or read-end collision. However, for people on foot, SUVs look quite different. Recent studies have shown that the prevalence of SUVs directly corresponds to an increase in pedestrian fatalities throughout the country. If you’re out walking, you need to pay attention.

Semitruck and 18-wheeler accident injuries are often fatal

Tractor-trailers are a staple on West Virginia highways. These large trucks crisscross the country day and night, transporting goods. Although they serve an important function, driving by an 18-wheeler at high speeds can be an incredibly disconcerting feeling. Semitruck and 18-wheeler accident injuries tend to be severe and even fatal, and the possibility of a wreck is probably higher than most drivers realize.
