Pennsylvania woman dies after SUV rear-ends buggy

Like all other drivers across the country, Pennsylvania motorists are advised to keep an eye out for pedestrians, bikers and users of other non-motorized vehicles. But our state is one of several where motorists may encounter vehicles that are bigger than bikes but slower than cars. Pennsylvania's Amish and Mennonite communities rely heavily on horse-drawn buggies to get around. And it's the responsibility of other drivers to be aware of these vehicles and avoid crashing into them.

Dangerous U.S. jobs of 2011 might surprise you

Every year, the Bureau of Labor Statistics releases a report on illness and injuries in workplaces across the country. The information is interesting, but is also important because it helps industry and safety officials determining which workplaces could possibly use more safety regulations.

Pennsylvania skateboarder hit by driver

If you're a motorist, it is always important to remember to share the road with cyclists, skateboarders and pedestrians. As the days get shorter in the upcoming Pennsylvania winter months, it will be getting darker much earlier. Therefore, it is crucial that drivers keep a watchful eye out for others using the road, especially during the dawn and dusk hours.   

Pennsylvania woman seriously injured in car accident

When it comes to determining the cause of car accidents, some explanations are fairly cut-and-dry. The driver who caused the accident may have been distracted or made a simple error in judgment, and may even take responsibility immediately for the crash. Other accidents take some investigation, particularly if the fault isn't clear or the person who caused the crash isn't willing to provide details that would be incriminating.

Man sentenced for Harrisburg car accident that claimed 2 lives

A man deemed responsible for a Harrisburg car wreck that claimed the lives of two people was recently sentenced in a local courtroom. After pleading guilty to the charges that resulted from the car accident, the 33-year-old man was sentenced to 2½ to 12 years behind bars at a state prison.

Experienced worker killed in tuna canning accident

Many people know and love their Bumble Bee Tuna. What they tend to forget is the work that goes into canning their favorite lunchtime protein. A 62-year-old man, a father of six, had worked canning in the tuna plant for several years before he recently died in an unthinkable way.

Driver remorse doesn't remove pain of accident victims' families

Many times when people think of personal injury or wrongful death lawsuits, they imagine money-hungry plaintiffs who are simply out to profit from another person involved in an accident. But as anyone who's been involved in a serious accident knows, medical costs can add up quickly, as can funeral and burial costs in the event someone has died. Factor in lost wages and very real pain and suffering, and it becomes clear that these cases have much more to do with emotional and financial recovery than revenge or greed.

Work-related illness hits Pennsylvania workers in store warehouse

Trader Joe's grocery stores are a hit in Pennsylvania and in other areas across the nation. As average consumers, many of us forget the work that goes into stocking the stores we love with the products that we love. There are workers at different levels who are responsible for getting us the products we come to rely on.

More Pennsylvanians relying on Social Security disability

Disabled residents of Pennsylvania who relied on the state's General Assistance program have been struggling since Gov. Tom Corbett cut the program from the state budget. Many are turning to Social Security disability insurance, which can seem nearly as unattainable as the recently axed state funds.

Pennsylvania driver charged in fatal hit-and-run motorcycle crash

Accidents that result in someone's death are undeniably tragic, but especially so when the crash results in multiple deaths. A recent double-fatal motorcycle accident was made even worse when the driver of the car that collided with the motorcycle left the scene.

Pennsylvania resident takes pedestrian safety into own hands

Many of us have attended neighborhood or city council meetings in hopes that civic leaders might listen to our concerns and requests about public safety or crime. Sometimes these efforts are met with action, while other times they appear fruitless and we continue to be frustrated. And every once in a while, residents end up taking action themselves in the name of keeping themselves and others safe. That's what one Pittsburgh resident did recently, with mixed reviews from neighbors and officials.
