1 in critical condition -- collision blamed on negligent driver

Head-on collisions can be disastrous incidents that endanger the safety of everyone involved. Many individuals have suffered serious injuries in accidents involving a negligent driver. A recent accident that is said to have taken place under similar circumstances in Louisiana has left one person in critical condition, and claimed the life of another.

Motor vehicle accidents involving cyclists can be dangerous

Many individuals in Louisiana and elsewhere choose to travel to and from destinations via bicycle. Cycling offers numerous benefits, such as being a healthy mode of transportation, or even providing one with the ability to avoid traffic jams. However, there is also some level of risk involved, and with less available protection, motor vehicle accidents involving cyclists have a much higher chance of ending in disaster.

Stay away from drivers who appear lost in thought

If you've ever driven along a Louisiana road, then you probably came upon a motorist who didn't appear to be paying attention to the road at all. You may have worried that he or she would cause an accident. Your worry was definitely not in vain either, as many distracted drivers are causal factors in serious motor vehicle collisions. Hopefully, you happen to be a driver who is very cautious behind the wheel and tries at all times to obey all traffic laws, posted signs and safety regulations.

Commercial vehicle accident leaves victim with serious burns

Inclement weather can be hazardous for a variety of reasons, and has been the cause of many motor vehicle collisions. Certain vehicles may have more difficulty adjusting to poor weather conditions, perhaps especially commercial trucks. A commercial vehicle accident can be exceedingly dangerous, and a recent collision under similar circumstances in Louisiana has left one person with serious injuries.

Truck operator and others may be found negligent in fatal crash

A family from a neighboring state recently traveled to Louisiana only to lose a loved one soon after crossing the border. Deputies from the Caddo Sheriff's office issued an APB for a truck operator whose trailer might be missing a wheel. This followed their response to a crash on Interstate 20 in the early morning hours of a recent Saturday.

Don't allow a song or a text to lead to a distracted driver

One of the rights of passage for the nation's youth is obtaining that license to drive. However, with that privilege comes more responsibility than many youngsters appreciate. With the constant advances in technology, there are more temptations than ever that can lead to a distracted driver accident. Louisiana families have witnessed firsthand the devastation these wrecks can cause.
