Personal injury: Alleged DUI accident on I-15 kills 2, injures 2

A 37-year-old California man was arrested after he allegedly caused a drunk driving accident on Interstate 15 on a recent Tuesday evening. The fiery accident occurred shortly before midnight, and the road remained closed for more than nine hours. That man is now facing multiple charges that might include vehicular manslaughter or murder along with driving while under the influence, and he may also have to face claims of personal injury and wrongful death.

Who will be liable for personal injury in driverless car crashes?

Much has been said, and will probably be said in the future, about driverless cars and the rules regulating them. After several previous adjustments, California's latest proposed regulations for these vehicles met the approval of safety advocates. However, these advocates were not happy with changes that the California Department of Motor Vehicles made to proposed regulations about liability for personal injury and other damage caused by a driverless car accident.

Personal injury and death follow suspected DUI crash

Drunk driving in the time leading up to the holidays is nothing unusual, and many lives are endangered by a few drivers who show little concern for the safety of other road users. Personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits fill the California civil courts in the new year, and many of the cases result from accidents caused by drunk drivers. A 30-year-old Santa Maria man was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving recently after a fatal crash on Highway 154.

Personal injury: Woman fatally injured when truck rear-ends car

California car drivers and their passengers will always be vulnerable when the vehicle must be maneuvered in traffic among commercial trucks and buses. These large vehicles cannot stop instantly, and a big rig driver who is distracted for only a brief moment can be caught unaware if a light turns red. Coming to a sudden halt in front of a semi can have severe consequences, including the possibility of suffering personal injury or even death. 

Personal injury, wrongful death claims may follow four-car crash

According to a report by the California Highway Patrol, a multi-vehicle crash on Highway 17 in Los Gatos led to road closures that lasted for more than five hours on a recent Monday evening. While some victims suffered personal injury, one driver died at the crash scene. Authorities say 938 collisions happened on this highway in 2016, the highest in 13 years.

Personal injury: Crash kills driver, critically injures passenger

The California Highway Patrol closed off most of the westbound lanes of Highway 4 in eastern Contra Costa County for approximately three hours on a recent Wednesday morning. This was done after a multi-vehicle crash that occurred shortly after 8 a.m. It followed an earlier collision between a motorcycle and a car in which no one suffered personal injury. However, this caused backups on the already congested highway.

Study: Infrastructure investment tied to pedestrian, biker safety

Public investment in infrastructure appears closely tied to pedestrian and bicyclist safety, according to a new study. Researchers compared fatality rates in 46 U.S. regions with each region's 'Bicycle Friendly Community' and 'Walk Friendly Community' rankings and found a surprisingly large difference between the safest and most dangerous communities.
