A distracted driver presents a serious danger to others

April is the month that has been set aside to highlight the dangers presented by operating a vehicle while engaging in other tasks.

Ohio man sentenced to prison for causing fatal car accident

Losing a loved one is never easy, even if the death has been expected for some time. It is understandably even worse when the loss suddenly results from a fatal car accident.

Car passengers still at high risk in truck accident

Forty years of statistics suggest that, in spite of advances made in technology, a wreck between a passenger vehicle and a tractor-trailer will not end well for those in the smaller vehicle. Regardless of the actual cause of the wreck, a truck accident is likely to result in passengers in cars or other smaller vehicles suffering serious or fatal injuries simply due to the size of the truck. Sadly, many Ohio families have endured the tragic consequences that typically accompany these collisions.
