Common causes of Pennsylvania large-truck accidents

According to a recent report by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Pennsylvania represents about 10 percent of all the large truck accidents in the United States each year, even though only 6.6 percent of the total vehicles registered in the state are large trucks. The report also indicates that the passengers in a smaller vehicle are almost four times as likely to be injured or killed than the driver of a large truck.

Arraignment set for trucker involved in fatal accident

Pennsylvania residents may remember a multi-vehicle accident that occurred on May 12, 2013, along Interstate 78 and claimed the lives of three individuals, including an Allentown state prosecutor. The trucker who allegedly caused the accident is set to be arraigned on Jan. 26. He is facing multiple charges, including felony counts of homicide by motor vehicle. The man was released from custody on bail of $10,000.

The problem of distracted driving in Pennsylvania

Distracted driving has become increasingly problematic in both Pennsylvania and across the country, especially with more and more people using cellphones. Each year, thousands of people are seriously injured or even killed in accidents as a result of distracted driving, yet people still continue to reach for their cellphones to read and respond to text messages. Such driving behavior endangers not only the distracted driver but also everyone else on the road around them.
