A Rutgers University student, paralyzed from the neck down in a motorcycle accident, is working hard to fulfill his dreams and to recover from his injuries.
When the weather is warm, people like to be outside. This is no different for motorcycle enthusiasts who enjoy spending time on their motorcycles on the Pennsylvania roads. But as we've seen in previous posts, drivers of other vehicles sharing the road with bikers sometimes do not see the motorcyclists in the lane next to them.
A Pennsylvania man faced two options: plead guilty and spend up to 25 years in prison or let a jury decide and face up to 82 years in prison. The man initially chose to go through with the jury trial but just last week decided to plead guilty instead. Now he will be serving the prison sentence for a fatal car accident he caused last year.
Several communities around Pennsylvania have already taken steps to ban the use of cell phones behind the wheel. But now steps are being taken by local lawmakers to make the ban statewide. This campaign was started after concern was raised over a fatal car accident that was caused when a driver was texting behind the wheel.
Last week, a number of crashes occurred in the Pennsylvania area including two motorcycle accidents. Within a matter of six hours, four accidents occurred in which five people were killed. Getting into an accident is a frightening experience and can happen unexpectedly.

Pennsylvania State Police are still looking for a possible third unknown vehicle that they believe was involved in a fatal car accident earlier this week. Two other vehicles had collided with one another; police believe that the unknown third vehicle hit one of the cars before driving away.
This morning, a man and his wife were injured after their car was hit by another driver who had lost control of his car. The car accident also left the other driver seriously injured. According to a police officer, the other driver had been speeding around a curve before hitting the man and his wife.
People who are injured in a hit-and-run accident may never know who was to blame. Even when the investigation is ongoing, there is no guarantee that a suspect will ever be found. For a Pennsylvania woman who was hit by a driver who fled the scene, it was nearly five months before police arrested the man responsible for the crash.
Accidents can happen in a split second and leave behind broken bones and broken families. Though there is no way to predict when an accident will happen, there are many ways to prevent sustaining serious injuries as a result of an accident.
