Couch may have caused rollover crash that injured 2

A car accident in Phoenix, Arizona left two people injured -- one of them being a 4-year-old -- and have many scratching their heads as to the cause of the crash. The 4-year-old was in the car with her mother, who is in her 20s. The vehicle suddenly rolled over and spilled off of the side of the road. So what caused the vehicle to suddenly and violently roll over like this?

The serious risks involved in a rollover accident

Two vehicles on Interstate 10 collided recently and caused a rollover accident that shut down traffic in the high occupancy vehicle (HOV) lane for a while. One person was injured in the wreck, though thankfully it is being reported that the injuries the person sustained are not life threatening. An investigation by the police is to be expected so that we can find out how the wreck really occurred.

What steps can you immediately take after a car accident?

Let's say you've just been in a car accident. You aren't injured, and neither are the other people involved in the wreck. However, numerous vehicles were involved and the crash scene is chaotic: people yelling, witnesses taking photos, police everywhere. What should you do? How can you effectively manage this moment in time and prepare yourself for the coming days, weeks and months of post-accident management?

Speeding, red-light-running driver causes wreck, injures 4

A wreck in Phoenix, Arizona involved six vehicles and left at least four people with injuries serious enough that they required hospitalization. The car accident occurred at an intersection after a car that was speeding plowed through a red light and slammed into the side of an SUV. The cars eventually hit a pole, and then four other vehicles ended up being involved in the wreck -- though it is unclear at this moment how those vehicles got involved in the crash.

Wintry conditions cause massive pile-up

An astonishing car crash in New Hampshire occurred recently, and even though it didn't occur here in Arizona and it involves conditions that few people in Phoenix need to worry about on a regular basis, the story will still resonate with you as it highlights an important element to car accidents.

What are the rules regarding cell phones and driving in Arizona?

It's understandable if you think that the state of Arizona has a cellphone and/or texting ban while driving for all drivers. With all of the talk on a national level about this issue, many people probably think such a law exists. However, the state of Arizona only has a ban on texting while driving, and it only applies to school bus drivers. School bus drivers are also banned from using their cellphones at all while driving. Granted, this is a great rule -- but if we're going to start drawing the line, shouldn't that line extend to a few more drivers?

What should you do immediately after a car accident?

Just like any other day, you drive down the freeway as you head home from a long day at work. But on this day, luck simply isn't on your side. Another vehicle collides with yours, and the resulting accident causes a vast amount of damage to both cars. You and the other driver suffer minor injuries. In the wake of the wreck, you're a little disoriented and you're not exactly sure what you're supposed to do. You've never been in a wreck before.

Street racing possibly involved in chaotic crash

An astonishing and tragic motor vehicle accident near Phoenix Arizona claimed the lives of two people and left another eight with life-threatening injuries. Three others were hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries, and the police are investigating the crash to try to figure out how such a complex accident occurred (three vehicles and 15 people were involved in total).

Texting while driving is an incredibly dangerous act

According to some data from a recent distracted driving crackdown by the Arizona Department of Public Safety, texting while driving is not one of the major causes of a distracted driver. However, general cellphone use is the top cause for distracted driving, and it appears that the younger crowds -- people aged 21-30 -- are the most susceptible to allowing their cellphone to get the better of them while in the driver's seat.
