A drunk driver may be responsible for a chain-reaction accident that killed one person and injured three more in Los Angeles on Saturday.
This week saw a serious freeway accident in Los Angeles. According to news accounts, a cement truck swerved suddenly across all four lanes of traffic as it was entering the freeway. The truck hit a van and then crashed into a center divider.
After decades of public awareness work to prevent drunk driving-related accidents, most Californians should know that it is crucially important to find a sober ride home after drinking. According to a new study, however, many sober cabs are actually dangerously impaired.
As most Californians know, it takes time for new drivers to develop the skills and judgment needed to safely operate a car. Sadly, five teenagers died in a Memorial Day crash that likely involved inexperience on the part of a 17-year-old South California driver.
Distracted driving poses a significant danger in many different contexts. One area in which the consequences of a moment's distraction are especially severe is the trucking industry. Truckers spend most of their time on the road and, for many, the temptation to pass the time by texting or surfing the web is too strong.
One increasingly common cause of car crashes in California and around the nation is phone-related distracted driving. It seems that hardly a month goes by without another study reporting an even higher rate of phone users who admit to texting and driving or using their phones for other distraction-related activities.
For some, the allure of street racing makes it hard to think about the potential consequences. Yet, the consequences caused by excessive speed and reckless driving can be tragic. Earlier this week, a five-year-old girl was critically injured when a Ford Mustang smashed into her car in Riverside, California.
Investigators are looking into drunk driving and speeding as potential causes of a serious South Los Angeles car accident that injured nine people, including six children.
Yesterday, a car accident in South Los Angeles killed three people and seriously injured another. The accident occurred around 10:20 pm when a convertible ran into a light pole, causing the car to ignite.
According to a recent survey conducted by AT&T, 98 percent of Americans know that distracted driving is a dangerous activity. While phone-related distractions have received a lot of attention in recent years, any activity that takes a driver's attention off of the road can result in a serious accident and injuries.
