With the increased emphasis that has been placed on being physically active, people in Massachusetts are making attempts to be healthier. As a result, many people have turned to races such as triathlons that encourage a person to train significantly in advance. However, these events have certain risks associated with them, including the risks faced by bicyclists every time they use the roadways. Unfortunately, one man in Massachusetts was recently killed in a fatal car accident as he was completing the cycling leg of a triathlon.
In driver's education courses, instructors emphasize the importance of being a defensive driver. Unfortunately, there are some car accidents that drivers are simply unable to avoid. Police in Massachusetts are currently investigating a fatal accident that involved three cars.
There are many activities in which people engage that they would never think would jeopardize their personal safety. For example, those who step outside for a moment for fresh air probably do not worry about their safety. Unfortunately, the family of one woman in Massachusetts is surely reeling from the news of their loved one's death in a fatal pedestrian accident when she stepped outside a bar for some air.
Teenagers have relatively little experience driving on Massachusetts roadways. As a result, there are many precautions taken in order to help prevent teen driver accidents. For example, state law prohibits junior operators from having other minors in the car with them unless there is an adult over the age of 21 present in the vehicle. Despite this law, police claim that a teenage driver had two other teenagers with him when a fiery crash occurred that sent three people to the hospital.
When people get together with their friends, it could lead them to engage in behavior that is out of the ordinary for them. Unfortunately, even if a person feels like their behavior is basically harmless, such behavior could have serious consequences when it involves a motor vehicle. For example, police in Massachusetts are now investigating a fatal car accident that killed two people and injured several others.
As Massachusetts and other states thaw out after a difficult winter, it is likely the roadways will have more pedestrians. As a result, motorists must remain especially vigilant in order to ensure that everyone is safe. A recent pedestrian accident, for example, was fatal.
There are many different ways to use Massachusetts roadways. While most people may automatically think of motor vehicles, bicyclists and pedestrians also have equal rights to utilize them. Unfortunately, due to the lack of physical protection such users have against cars and trucks, a pedestrian accident can quickly turn tragic. For example, police say that a World War II veteran was recently killed while crossing the road.
Human beings have certain responsibilities to one another. Beyond not intentionally causing harm to another person, one who injures another is expected to provide aid for that person. Unfortunately, hit-and-run accidents occur all too often. One Massachusetts teenager recently suffered serious injuries in a pedestrian accident after being struck by a car that then fled the scene. Police appear to be making headway toward finding the driver.
The vast majority of people who get into the drivers' seats of cars know the rules of the road and are willing to obey them. Their goals, beyond arriving at their destinations, are to ensure their personal safety, as well as the safety of those around them by avoiding car accidents. Unfortunately, some people may not be as diligent. Even a split second of distraction to change the radio station or glance at a phone can cause a devastating accident. Police in Massachusetts are still investigating an accident that sent seven people to the hospital.
The average person makes hundreds of decisions each and every day. Most of these are seemingly inconsequential -- what to wear or eat -- while others may have unforeseen consequences on both the individual's life as well as the life of others. Such decisions could have led to the recent conviction of one man in Massachusetts because of a fatal car accident last year that resulted in the death of an elderly woman.
