Truck's cargo falls into path of vehicle, killing the driver

Imagine that you're driving down the road and all is well. A truck approaches in the oncoming traffic lanes, but you think nothing of it. You've passed thousands of trucks in your life as a driver, so when this truck comes and goes, you aren't even thinking about what kind of dangers it may pose to you. What you don't know is that just seconds earlier, a piece of heavy cargo fell off that truck and landed in your lane.

Filing for divorce: how to know when a marriage is unsalvageable

Much like life in general, every marriage goes through periods of ups and downs. How a couple chooses to approach challenges posed throughout the course of a marriage is often a direct reflection of a marriage's health. The marriage between couples who are able to overcome challenging events and situations together is often strengthened. There are, however, some challenges within a marriage that are clear signs it's time to walk away.

Is fatigued driving among truckers really that big of a problem?

We recently wrote about a fatal truck accident in which one man was killed and famed comedian Tracy Morgan critically injured. The truck driver responsible for causing that accident is currently facing criminal charges after he admitted to being awake for more than 24 hours when the crash occurred.

Driver arrested in fatal crash after release from hospital

When a car that is traveling at a normal rate of speed collides with a car that is stationary, the results can be devastating. The amount of force that is created can make escaping such a crash without injury almost impossible -- for either the moving car or the one that was not moving. If a driver is going speeds that are well above average, however, the devastation can reach another level.

Web and 'do-it-yourself' divorces can be very risky

Many people who go through a divorce or believe that a divorce may be on the horizon probably wish that there was some secret way to go through the divorce as simply and quickly as possible. They wish for a magic button, a way for the divorce to just happen and for all of the issues involved to be resolved without much stress or work.

No sleep in 24 hours for trucker involved in Morgan crash

As many Phoenix residents have heard by now, famed comedian Tracy Morgan has suffered serious injuries in a motor vehicle accident that was caused by a truck driver. The crash was fatal, killing at least one person and leaving several people, including Morgan, with serious or catastrophic injuries. Today new allegations were made about the truck driver, who was released on $50,000 bail. Apparently he had not slept in 24 hours, thus contributing to his inability to stay a safe distance away from upcoming vehicles and directly contributing to the wreck.

Modification of Custody

In order to change a custody schedule (now known as parenting time) the parent requesting a change must show a "substantial and continuing change in circumstances" that justifies a modification.  The "substantial" change may be something such as one of the parent's moving residences that makes the current parenting schedule more burdensome; or perhaps one of the parent's work schedule changed; or maybe the children are just older and their school schedule has changed.

Train rails are causing many bike accidents in Tucson

According to Living Streets Alliance (LSA), an organization that advocates road safety for bikes and pedestrians, there have been no less than 86 bike accidents that have occurred in a crucial area of Tucson, Arizona. The area has a lot of bike traffic, but it also has a railway in the concrete for the city’s transit system. These rails have been involved in these wrecks, which were tracked by LSA in response to the city lacking a reporting system for bike-streetcar accidents.
