Motorcycle accidents: Hit-and-run driver causes rider's death

As we move into summer, motorcycles will become more prevalent on Pennsylvania roadways. The lives of motorcycle riders are at risk whenever they take to the roads, and it is not uncommon for motorcycle riders to suffer severe -- or even fatal -- injuries when motorcycle accidents occur. This is especially true when automobiles are involved. A Pennsylvania woman recently lost her life when her motorcycle was struck by a vehicle.

Will collision-avoidance systems prevent rear-end car accidents?

Rear-end accidents are not uncommon on Pennsylvania roads. The National Transportation Safety Board says approximately 1.7 million rear-end collisions occur nationwide every year. The deaths and injuries that result from these car accidents are reported to be 1,700 and 500,000 respectively. These alarming numbers likely gave rise to a call by NTSB for all auto manufacturers to include collision-avoidance systems as regular equipment in new vehicles.

2 tourists, bus driver, die in Pennsylvania semi-truck crash

A group of tourists from another country was traveling in a contracted bus on a sightseeing trip when their vacation was abruptly interrupted.

Faulty lift truck blamed for 1 fatality, work injury to another

A seemingly preventable accident recently claimed the life of a Pennsylvania tree-trimmer and caused severe work injury to another.

For reasons yet to be determined, the boom malfunctioned, causing the bucket to drop and strike and kill the worker on the ground. The man in the bucket at the time of the malfunction suffered a work injury and was rushed to the hospital by helicopter.
