Multi-vehicle car accidents can cause serious damage

Most California drivers understand the importance of paying close attention to one's surroundings while behind the wheel and that speed must be adjusted according to such variables as weather conditions, traffic situations and obstacles of any sort. Drivers who fail to slow down when necessary can sometimes cause car accidents resulting in tremendous damage. Such was the case in a recent multi-vehicle pileup on the San Bernardino Freeway in Claremont that left one person dead and many others injured, some critically.

The crash happened very early on a recent Sunday morning. According to the California Highway Patrol, a 30-year-old man triggered the crash when he was traveling in the carpool lane at a high speed considering current traffic conditions. He rear-ended another vehicle that had stopped due to road construction. Because of the impact, that vehicle in turn hit another vehicle. The original vehicle continued and hit yet another vehicle, which then struck another vehicle.

Motorcycle accidents: California man struck and killed

Many California residents understand the appeal of motorcycles as a mode of transportation, as they can be fun to ride, and they allow the rider to enjoy being outside at the same time as the biker is getting from one place to another. Unfortunately, perhaps due to the vehicle's compact structure, motorcycle accidents happen all too often, and when they happen, typically, the motorcycle rider will not fare well. Such was the case in a recent accident when a motorcycle rider died following a collision with a truck.

The incident happened early one recent Monday morning at an intersection. The driver of the truck attempted a left turn, while the motorcyclist proceeded westbound through the intersection. Likely sensing a collision, the motorcyclist made attempts to avoid it, but unfortunately, the 21-year-old truck driver collided with the smaller vehicle.

Dog owners are responsible for their pets' behavior

As well as dog owners claim to know their dogs, no one can really predict if a dog will bite. Even the most docile and friendly dogs reach their limits if provoked or unwell, and if you are in the wrong place at the wrong time, you may be the victim of a devastating attack. Dog bites can leave you with deep lacerations that require stitches, broken bones, torn muscles and disfiguring scars.

While many dog owners are attuned to their dog's moods, there are still some whose irresponsibility places you and others in danger. If you suffer injuries from an unprovoked dog attack, you may have questions about your rights.

California car accidents: 2 fatalities in head-on crash

Any person holding a valid driver's licence should know the responsibility that comes with such a document. While on the road, drivers should remember they are in charge of a large piece of machinery that, if not controlled properly, could seriously injure or kill a person. Car accidents can occur in a split second following driver error of any sort. Unfortunately, this may have been what happened when two people died recently in crash on a California roadway.

The crash occurred on a recent Monday evening. Police report that two vehicles collided head-on on a roadway in Parlier. A pickup truck driven by a 57-year-old man crossed a double-yellow line on the road and crashed with an SUV driven by a 28-year-old woman. Both drivers were killed in the crash. They were the sole occupants of their vehicles.

Trucking accidents often tragic, even if truck is stopped

Truck drivers have a great deal of responsibility, and to be safe on the road, they must fully focus on the task at hand. In order to do so, drivers must be well-rested, and since long-haul drivers often must endure very long trips involving many hours of driving in one stretch, they struggle at times to fit sufficient sleep into their schedules. Unfortunately, in their efforts to do so, trucking accidents sometimes occur, and this is what happened in an incident on a California freeway.

The horrific accident occurred early on a recent Thursday morning on an Interstate freeway. Two brothers and two sisters, aged 17 to 26 years, all from the same family, were traveling in an SUV when they collided with a semi-truck parked on the right shoulder of the freeway. Three of the occupants were killed in the crash, and one was left critically injured. The truck driver had pulled over to rest and apparently was sleeping when the collision occurred.

California intersection has seen several fatal car accidents

Some California residents choose to walk regularly as part of a healthy lifestyle or simply to better see the surrounding sights while enjoying a relaxing leisure activity. Unfortunately, when pedestrians walk a route covering roadways, they must share some of their space with moving vehicles. Sadly, car accidents sometimes result, and typically, the pedestrian does not fare as well as the driver. This is what happened recently on a Fresno road when a man was killed in a hit-and-run accident.

The incident took place early on a Thursday evening when a 70-year-old man, out for his nightly walk, was struck and killed by a car at an intersection. Reportedly, the car ran a red light, and the driver continued on until some time later when the vehicle broke down. Detectives were able to determine the make of car from a piece of weather stripping found at the scene. Meanwhile, a short time after the accident, the car's driver contacted police to report his vehicle stolen from a nearby restaurant. Police arrived at the restaurant, but could not locate the caller, and they later determined he had been calling from a different location.

California car accidents may result in multiple fatalities

Unfortunately, some people do not seem to heed the continual warnings in recent years about the dangers of driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. These people will still get behind the wheel of a car no matter what they have been doing immediately prior. Sometimes, auto accidents, whether in California or elsewhere, are caused by such reckless behavior, and sometimes these accidents result in fatalities. Sadly, this was the case when a two-vehicle collision caused four deaths.

The crash happened in Santa Ana early on a recent morning when a westbound car collided with a southbound pickup truck. Both vehicles flipped several times, resulting in a fire. An off-duty firefighter and nurse stopped to help the people involved. The nurse tended to the single occupant of the car, but, unfortunately, responders pronounced all four occupants of the truck dead at the scene.

Have you linked the pain in your hands to your job?

Does the pain that you experience in your wrist or hand when you attempt tasks like opening a bottle cap puzzle you? Your job might be to blame, and it could get worse. You might have one of several painful conditions that fall under repetitive strain injuries -- abbreviated as RSI. Thousands of California workers in different occupations develop RSI over time if their jobs have them repeating similar motions day in and day out.

RSI does not follow a sudden injury, and it is not a musculoskeletal disorder or a muscle strain or sprain, which typically heals in a relatively short time. RSI pain typically persists and becomes worse over time.

Car accidents due to driver DUI often cause serious injuries

Where there are large crowds of people walking near roadways, there is also the potential for multiple injuries if a vehicle veers off the road for any reason. Although a driver can lose control due to sudden illness or injury or even simply from a moment of distraction, authorities often conclude that drugs or alcohol are to blame in car accidents. Such was the case in California when a driver under the influence of drugs plowed his truck into a large crowd of people.

The incident happened very early on a recent Sunday morning when hundreds of people walked the sidewalks of a road in Fullerton that is home to restaurants, bars and parking lots. Likely, many of these people were heading home after an evening out. Reportedly, police arrived at the accident scene to find a pickup truck that had apparently collided with a tree, causing serious front-end damage. Police and several bystanders worked to free several people who were trapped underneath the truck. The truck had also crashed into three vehicles parked on the street.

Car accidents involving pedestrians are often fatal

Many California residents enjoy walking as a mode of transportation, a leisure activity or even as a form of exercise. However, these days, it seems car accidents involving pedestrians are happening all too frequently, and often these accidents do not end well for the pedestrian. Sadly, such was the case when a young woman lost her life as a result of a hit-and-run accident in Redondo Beach.

The incident happened on a recent Saturday night when a vehicle driven by a 21-year-old woman hit a pedestrian at an intersection. The female pedestrian, also a 21-year-old, suffered injuries from the crash that proved to be fatal. According to family members, the deceased young woman had been visiting her sister at the time of the accident. A witness who arrived at the scene moments following the crash saw someone who appeared to be a relative or friend frantically performing CPR on the victim.
