Drivers of both cars and trucks can do more to prevent accidents

If you’ve ever witnessed a wreck between a large truck and a passenger car, you know these accidents can be catastrophic. A fully loaded tractor-trailer can weigh up to 80,000 pounds, and that weight increases the momentum of the crash. We all want to prevent auto-truck accidents, yet an average of 500,000 of them happen every year -- including 5,000 fatalities.

Wrongful death suit filed in woman's fall from Texas Giant coaster

As you probably remember, in July a woman was riding the Texas Giant roller-coaster at Six Flags in Arlington when she was apparently unable to hold on during one of the coaster’s twists where the riders are upside-down. Tragically, she was ejected from the ride, thrown into support pilings, and fell 75 feet to her death.

Wrongful death suit over Houston hotel pool electrocution tragedy

Over Labor Day weekend, a malfunctioning underwater light at the Hilton Houston Westchase hotel pool released electricity into the water while the pool was filled with swimmers. Several of those injured were members of a family who had gathered for a peaceful swim during a family get-together. A woman and her two sons, one 10 years old, were among those who suffered serious electrical shock injuries. Tragically, her older son died as a result.

Traffic safety groups sue over delays in backup accident law

Because of poor rear visibility in modern cars and SUVs, 228 people are killed every year, on average, in backup accidents. Perhaps hundreds more are injured. All too often, they’re children under the age of 5 -- mostly when a parent or relative was at the wheel.
