West Virginia officer injured in a hit-and-run crash

The importance of remaining attentive while behind the wheel can never be overstressed. Drivers in West Virginia will encounter an accident site from time to time, and in many cases these automobile collisions are caused by a negligent driver. When a driver fails to pay proper attention, is speeding or fails to follow traffic signs and signals, they could strike another vehicle or even a pedestrian or cyclist in the area. This could lead to serious injuries and the driver at fault could face major criminal and civil consequences.

Distracted driver causes multi-vehicle crash

One person's negligence could cause multiple victims to suffer. This is especially true when the negligent act occurs when an individual is behind the wheel. This does not only affect other drivers on the roadway, but could also harm bikers and even pedestrians in the area of the crash. Furthermore, an accident caused by a negligent driver could result in serious injuries and severe damages.

Motorcyclist struck and killed by car on West Virginia highway

A small or slight distraction that causes a driver to be inattentive even for a few seconds could lead to tragedy. A negligent or distracted driver could cause a serious or fatal accident. This is especially true if a car, truck or van collides with a motorcycle. These small vehicles are not equipped with the same safety features as other motor vehicles and even if a helmet is worn, it can only guard the motorcyclist to a certain extent.

Researchers seek to improve safety at coal mines

Workplace safety is a major concern in some industries. The risk of getting injured is higher in certain occupations. Mining is a good example, as demonstrated by a recent incident in which two miners were killed in a West Virginia coal mine. The mining industry has numerous risks, including cave-ins, explosions, fires and mechanical injuries. Furthermore, health issues are a concern due to dust, moisture and gases.
