Young teen killed in tragic car accident

Most Texas drivers realize the importance of checking both ways when approaching an intersection, just in case another driver does not stop when necessary. However, we are all human and sometimes can become distracted or simply forget what we should be doing, so not everyone practices this safety measure every single time. Occasionally, a car accident is the unfortunate result. This appears to be what happened on a recent Saturday morning.

Horrific car accident result in Dallas student's death

Here is a scene that is regularly played out in Texas and across the country: a group of teenagers traveling together in a vehicle, perhaps on their way to or from school or a fun event. What begins as a typical daily occurrence can sometimes, however, turn tragic in seconds. For a group of Dallas teens, sadly, this was the case when they were involved in a horrific car accident, resulting in the death of a 16-year-old girl.

Possible reckless driving results in fatal car accident

When a person gets behind the wheel of a vehicle, he or she takes on a great responsibility. To ensure the safety of all vehicle occupants, as well as other vehicles, pedestrians and bicycles on or near the road, a driver must obey the rules of the road and fully concentrate on the task at hand. Most drivers, most of the time, do so. Occasionally, however, a driver will exhibit unsafe driving habits, sometimes resulting in a car accident. Two men recently suffered the consequences of such a situation on a Texas highway.

Even hands-free devices may lead to distracted drivers

By now, most people are aware that cellphone use while driving is not safe, and while many Texas drivers do put their devices away while driving, some still talk or text on their phones when their attention should be focused solely on the task of driving. In fact, according to the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), in 2017, approximately one in five motor vehicle accidents involved distracted drivers. About 90 Texas cities have passed a law prohibiting drivers from using hand-held devices while operating a motor vehicle, but are hands-free options any safer?

Tragic car accident on Texas rural road

Many Texas drivers travel on rural roads from time to time or even on a daily basis. Some drivers may enjoy or even prefer a route through the countryside over one in an urban area. The common perception may be that less busy rural roads are safer for travel than city streets. Sadly, this is not always the case, and a car accident can happen.

Car accident tragically ends school year for young girl

A new school year has begun in Texas, and families are busy with back-to-school schedules and plans, and goals for the new year. For one Texas family, that agenda was tragically interrupted on a recent morning drive to school that ended in a tragic car accident. A 9-year-old girl had just posed for a first day of school photo and was riding to school with her mother and brother.

Car accident kills a young man about to start his senior year

A new school year is under way in Texas. With the opening of school comes an increase in morning traffic. Increases in traffic can lead to increased stress in drivers that can in turn lead to incidents attributed to road rage or hazardous driving. A recent fatal car accident may have resulted from a road rage incident.

What to do if involved in a car accident

While driving is a convenient way to get where one needs to go, it is also a tremendous responsibility. The Texas driver is responsible for operating the vehicle in a safe manner, yet a car accident can happen to even the safest driver. When one does occur, it is important to know what needs to be done.

Distracted drivers cause approximately 20 percent of accidents

While driving down the road, it is common to look around, take in the sights and see what other drivers are doing. Fortunately, many drivers are actively paying attention to their surroundings. However, some Texas drivers appear to be more concerned with their cell phones than with their own safety and the safety of those around them. In fact, research shows that approximately 20 percent of car accidents are caused by distracted drivers.
