2 pedestrians fatally struck in eastern Pennsylvania

As drivers, we've all learned the precautions to take against car accident injuries. We know that wearing our seat belts, driving defensively and keeping distractions to a minimum, whether they're passengers or cellphones, can reduce the chance we'll be hurt in a collision. But these protections only help us if we're driving. As pedestrians, we face a completely different set of dangers.

One of the things we learn as young drivers and again as we become much older is to drive defensively. This means keeping a close eye out for hazardous weather or road conditions, emergency vehicles and other cars that could cause an accident. Defensive driving is safer than passive or aggressive driving because we're more prepared for something to go wrong. But there are some circumstances no one can anticipate.

Study reveals doctors not completely honest with patients

Do you ever wonder if your doctor is being completely honest with you? A recent survey of physicians suggests that many doctors do lie to their patients. Roughly 20 percent of doctors polled admitted they failed to disclose information to a patient for fear of being sued, and about 11 percent of physicians said they have lied to a patient or parent of a patient, according to the study.

Distracted driving laws for Pennsylvania teens may not be enough

Many of us remember what it was like to finally get our driver's license after counting the days until our 16th birthday. The first thing you want to do is give your unlicensed friends a lift. Everyone pile in! The more the better! And let's be sure to turn up the radio for an extra good time.

Pa. car accident case involving data recorder could set precedent

Whenever an airplane crashes, investigators rely on its flight data recorder, usually called a "black box," to tell them about any air safety issues or mechanical problems the plane might have experienced in the moments before the crash. Many cars are now equipped with data recorders as well, which can be helpful in determining what caused a car accident. The data can include a vehicle's speed, braking activity, turn signal use and even seatbelt use.

Driver killed, construction workers injured in Pennsylvania crash

No matter what time of year it is, road construction seems to be a constant presence. Orange signs are everywhere, telling us to slow down or go that way instead of this way. It can add several minutes or even hours to a commute or road trip, which can lead to frustration and a temptation to ignore the warnings. But is the hassle worth a serious car accident?

Pennsylvania man charged with DUI for crash that injured nephew

Would you ever sue a family member if a big enough legal conflict arose? What would it take for you to take a relative to court, and what would you hope to gain from it? Although most people are unwilling to drive wedges between family members at the risk of causing irreparable harm to lifelong relationships, some circumstances can prompt people to take legal action against one of their own.
