Collision with tractor-trailer hospitalizes two in Virginia


With its myriad of superhighways and access to many other municipalities, the commonwealth of Virginia has seen its fair share of truck accidents. Such heavy vehicle accidents can sometimes result from fatigue, inattentiveness or the negligence of the truck driver. Other reasons for these collisions can include inadequate truck maintenance, defective auto parts, excessive speeding or an unqualified or inexperienced truck driver.

New medicine may be able to help brain injury victims


Virginians may be surprised to hear that traumatic brain injury is the primary cause of death in people below age 40. Brain injury may be caused by a motor vehicle collision, an accidental fall or an injury to the head by any means. When a traumatic brain injury occurs, expedited treatment can be the difference between life and death. To help improve treatment of injuries that cause excessive bleeding, a new medicine, a compound called Tranexamic Acid, is used by the Department of Defense to treat the worst injuries sustained by soldiers. The medication has earned the approval of the FDA, and now one hospital will start using the treatment as part of a study.

Gloucester County collision leaves one critically hurt

Any person regularly operating a vehicle would be aware that road space is shared by a number of different vehicles. Each vehicle requires different degrees of care when driving, but perhaps none is as vulnerable, or as exciting, as a motorcycle. A motorcyclist in Roanoke, Virginia, is often not accounted for by other drivers when gauging the amount of road occupied. Thus, there is almost always greater danger in operating a motorcycle than in operating a different type of vehicle.

Driving on public roads is a privilege for individuals who, through the completion of required driving tests, have shown a certain ability to operate and control an automobile within full knowledge of motoring laws. After attaining the privilege, there is no guarantee that a vehicle owner will be a responsible driver, and as a consequence, many accidents and many injuries and even deaths, occur every year. Drivers responsible for such incidents are also liable for prosecution under criminal law.
