Massachusetts car accidents: Driver injured in truck rollover

Commercial trucks are a vital part of many businesses and account for a significant number of the vehicles regularly traveling on roadways. However, due to their size, these trucks can cause serious injuries when they are involved in car accidents. A Massachusetts woman was recently hurt in such an incident.

Few details of the crash have been released at this time. Reports indicate that a semi truck and a car collided, though officials are still investigating what factors led to the collision. The crash appeared to have also knocked down a nearby utility pole, which fell on top of both vehicles.

Massachusetts pedestrian suffers serious injuries in car crash

Some motor vehicle accidents can be trivial. When pedestrians are involved, however, collisions are often much more dangerous and result in serious injuries. One Massachusetts pedestrian is lucky to be alive after getting hurt in a recent crash.

According to police, the driver was traveling south in the left lane when his vehicle hit the victim. Reports show that the pedestrian came into contact with the hood and lower windshield of the car. The force of the impact sent the victim airborne, where he then landed in the northbound lane. Further details of the accident have not yet been released.

2 Massachusetts boys hit by a car

Car accidents involving pedestrians rarely produce favorable results. Many pedestrians tragically suffer severe injuries or even death when hit by a car. One young boy was injured and another killed in a recent accident in Massachusetts.

According to police, the two boys were crossing the street at the time of the collision. As they crossed, they were struck by a car. Authorities reported that the driver of that vehicle fled the scene following the accident. Police are currently still investigating the events leading up to the crash.

Massachusetts factory worker severely injured on the job

Various safety precautions are required at Massachusetts workplaces. Should companies fail to implement these safety measurements, workers are often more likely to become injured on the job. One Massachusetts business is being investigated after an employee recently suffered a traumatic injury at work.

Few details of the accident have been released at this time. Officials stated that Boston Emergency Medical Services responded to the incident at M.F. Foley Co., Inc., a Massachusetts seafood plant. Upon arrival, they found an employee whose arm had been severed. The victim was rushed to an area hospital for treatment. The cause of the accident was not revealed.

Workers' compensation could aid families of deceased workers

There may be many different ways a Massachusetts construction accident can happen. Sometimes these incidents may occur in ways that no one can anticipate. When a worker faces a serious injury or is killed on the job, the worker or his or her family is entitled to file for workers' compensation or death benefits. A family in another state may consider filing after a man was killed in an explosion on the job.

Officials state that the man was doing painting work on a home under construction when an explosion occurred. Witnesses claim that they heard the blast and saw the fire before the house collapsed. Authorities believe that a propane tank outside the home exploded, leading to the resulting damage.

3 Massachusetts pedestrians recently hit by a car

Car accidents can often lead to property damage and injury for those involved. When a pedestrian is hit by a car, the outcome may be more severe. Three pedestrians are lucky to be alive after being injured in one such collision in Massachusetts.

According to authorities, a woman in an SUV was attempting to leave a parking space when the accident occurred. Two pedestrians were crossing the street at the time. For reasons that are still unclear, the driver suddenly accelerated backwards, hitting the couple and a man walking on the sidewalk. The driver then attempted to move forward, running over two of the victims that fell under the vehicle and pinning the third victim underneath.

Massachusetts car accidents too often result in fatalities

Driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs is never acceptable. Unfortunately, car accidents that result from driving while intoxicated occur across the country on a regular basis. These preventable collisions often lead to serious injuries or fatalities. A Massachusetts man was recently killed in one such accident.

Police said that the alleged intoxicated driver began driving erratically and struck an SUV, pushing it into oncoming traffic. A motorcycle then crashed into the SUV, ejecting the rider. The driver believed to be at fault then continued driving, hitting several other vehicles. She was eventually apprehended by police and taken into custody.

Employees injured on the job may benefit from workers' comp

Many Massachusetts residents rarely have to worry about workplace accidents. Those performing jobs that require manual labor, however, are often more likely to face the risk of being injured on the job. A worker in a nearby state was recently seriously hurt at his job on a construction site.

Officials said that the man was part of a building crew working on the construction of a new home. The men were pouring concrete for the foundation of the home when the accident occurred. For reasons that are still unclear, the truck pouring the concrete shifted. This caused the arm of the truck from which the concrete is pumped to hit the worker in the head.

Massachusetts man suffered serious injuries in recent accident

Massachusetts residents should not have to worry about their safety when walking in a city. However, pedestrian accidents are an unfortunate reality that often cause serious injuries for those involved. One man was recently injured in such an accident at the hands of an alleged drunk driver.

Police stated that the victim had paused at the curb and was attempting to cross the street when the incident occurred.  An SUV operated by a woman struck him as he crossed. Reports say that she stopped briefly before pulling into a nearby parking lot. Officials then allege that she got out and threw two small bottles of whiskey under her vehicle.
