Over a 10-day span, one Louisiana parish saw three people die in wrecks. An estimated 90 people have perished in car accidents from 2014 to 2016. Officials in that parish are now working to get the word out about their new campaign to prevent these avoidable deaths.
You are ready to go out for a night on the town. Just so you don't have to worry about driving yourself, you order a car from a ride-share service. On your car ride home after a great evening with friends, it happens -- your ride-share driver gets into an accident, and you get hurt as a result. Now what?
Late in 2016, a tragic accident ended the life of one man and forever changed the lives of two other people. Louisiana police just took the driver deemed responsible into custody and accused him of causing the death and serious injuries of the victims involved. The driver is now facing several serious criminal charges.
Choosing an individual to watch over one's children may be one of the hardest decisions that a parent may have to make. When that trusted person makes a decision that causes injuries to a child under his or her care, parents are understandably distraught. One Louisiana family recently experienced this when a babysitter caused a DUI accident that injured two children.
