Driving safe in the winter helps prevent crashes

Winter weather is here, and with it comes many dangers on the roads. Storms impact different regions in a variety of ways, and some areas are better prepared than others. While your area might be well-equipped to handle ice and snow, there are still some things you should know about being safe in the winter.

Merritt Parkway not suitable for large trucks due to low bridges

When low overpasses run across highways, there's no way that large vehicles can fit under them. Trying to do so puts others in danger, since the vehicle could end up colliding with the bridges and walkways. Slamming on the brakes to prevent a crash could actually cause one, too.

What should you do after a rear-end collision?

A rear-end accident may seem like it comes out of nowhere. Unlike a head-on collision, you usually don't see a rear-end collision coming, so you have no time to prepare yourself for the imminent danger. As a result, you may suffer injuries like whiplash or others due to the impact that you weren't prepared for.

Halloween is a danger to young children for many reasons

With Halloween stores popping up all around town, you've probably realized the holiday is just a few short months away. Soon, kids will be piling into cars and walking around neighborhoods in their handmade and store-bought costumes. While that's great for the economy and a good way for neighborhoods to come together, it's also a danger to the children who participate in the holiday.

6-vehicle crash leaves 3 with injuries in Connecticut

Car crashes can change lives in a moment. Many of them are avoidable, especially when it comes to those in intersections. If drivers pay attention, take turns or follow the appropriate signals and stay aware of their surroundings, it's possible to avoid most accidents completely.

Woman fighting for her life after pedestrian accident

Traffic accidents can happen anywhere, but they shouldn't take place when there are plenty of markings, stop signs or other traffic signals. For example, if you're crossing the road with a WALK sign and are in a crosswalk, there is really no reason that you should have to fear for your life.

Serious crash leaves at least 1 badly injured in Connecticut

When a person gets behind the wheel while intoxicated, he or she puts the lives of others at risk. Unfortunately, some people believe that it's perfectly acceptable to do so, even though there is plenty of evidence to the contrary.

Fight for what you deserve after a crash with a drunk driver

You headed out for a night on the town knowing that there would be people intoxicated around you, but you didn't think anyone would be on the roads while drunk. Unfortunately, one of those drivers collided with you as you crossed the street, and now you have serious injuries that need consistent, long-term care.

Teen killed in rollover accident in Connecticut

It's always a tragedy when a teenager or child is killed in a car accident. Parents and families feel the pain of the loss, and entire communities who participated in the child or teen's upbringing, schooling and other activities mourn the loss. In many cases, the death is made worse knowing that it could have been prevented.
