Massachusetts residents know that driving while intoxicated is likely to cause a car accident. Innocent people can be injured, and fatalities often occur. There appears to be an epidemic of drunk driving sweeping the nation, and it has to stop. Nobody should have their life cut short because of this, but this appears to be just the case for a Massachusetts man who was fatally injured in a potential drunk driving car accident.
A Lowell, Massachusetts, woman was killed in a car crash in the early morning hours as she walked along Main Street in Tewksbury. A pedestrian faces many risks each time he or she enters an area where they may encounter a moving automobile. A vehicle's speed, pedestrian visibility and driver distractions are among the most common factors to consider. Many pedestrians enjoy walking for health benefits or environmental convictions, and some just enjoy being outdoors. In some cases, even after considering the dangers of a car crash while traveling by foot across a busy street, walking is often the only option a person has.
Residents of Massachusetts surely don't like hearing about another car accident. The only thing worse than the car accident itself is knowing that it could have been prevented. The growing epidemic of car accidents could be reduced if caution was used more often on the road. A recent multi-car accident in Massachusetts has left three people injured and hospitalized.
Going over the speed limit is one of the most common traffic violations that drivers commit. In some cases, it is just a few miles per hour over the limit that do not make a considerable difference, but in others, high rates of speed could be considered a factor in a fatal car accident. Speeding has the ability to turn a vehicle into a very dangerous object, and if that vehicle collides with another vehicle or a stationary object, a very serious accident could occur.
A family taking a leisurely stroll on a Sunday afternoon is meant to be a carefree and enjoyable experience. The last thing a parent expects is to be hit by a car on the sidewalk with a young child in tow. When such an unbearable tragedy strikes, the pain of devastation can resonate throughout the lives of the victims and their families. Recently, a Massachusetts' police report states that a teenage driver seemingly collided into a young family on foot over the weekend during a car crash.
Driving on a crowded interstate can be a very stressful and tension-filled time for some individuals. Most drivers make a conscious effort to keep a relatively safe distance between their vehicles and other motorists. Unfortunately, tractor-trailer drivers don't always have this luxury, due to the sheer size of their vehicles. A 30-year-old Massachusetts man is battling life-threatening injuries after being involved in a recent car accident with an 18-wheeler.
Teen drivers have a tendency to get into accidents, often based solely on the fact that they lack experience. Unfortunately, a recent pedestrian vs. car accident on the suburban streets of a Massachusetts town underscores the point. An early morning stroll for a man and his dog was forever disrupted as a vehicle came speeding down the quiet street where the two were walking. The man and his pet were both killed instantly as a result of the crash.
The Massachusetts State Police investigated an accident scene recently after a 75-year-old woman was struck by a car and critically injured while crossing the street. The driver who hit her fled the scene afterwards. The 24-year-old woman who was driving the car later walked into the police station to confess. She has been charged with leaving the scene of a car accident involving personal injury.
When facing possible impending death in a vehicle accident an individual may have visions of other dimensions and see the faces of lost loved ones. In a recent Massachusetts auto accident in which a Boston Globe delivery truck driver was looking into the eyeballs of death, it turned out instead to be a vision of his dead father who he believes guided him to survival. The victim had been rear-ended by an apparently drunk driver, pushed through a guard rail and then plunged off Interstate 93 to an exit ramp below.
Authorities in one Massachusetts town are working diligently to investigate a recent accident that trapped six people inside their vehicle. According to reports, the two-vehicle car accident between a minivan and a pickup truck was severe enough to block traffic for more than three hours. Several individuals were injured including two reportedly serious injuries.
