Risk factors that threaten motorist safety

Driving can be risky business, and even though drivers in Vinton may acknowledge this on some level, they may not truly understand how quickly a trip can turn into a disaster. Of course, the reasons for car accidents vary significantly, so drivers may benefit from learning about the hazards they face when they get behind the wheel.

Virginia accident claims life of car driver


Given the large number of vehicles that drive regularly at high speeds along the roads of Virginia, the possibilities of accidents taking place along those roads can seldom be discounted altogether. A car accident can cause severe injuries to one or more of the parties involved, and in the case of a head-on collision, the accident may even prove fatal. At the very least, the victims of such an accident often end up having to bear not only considerable pain and suffering, but also considerable medical expenses.

Winter weather causes hundreds of Virginia accidents in one day

Virginia's difficult winter weather has carried on into March, and police said a snowstorm on March 3 led to hundreds of crashes and three deaths in the state just on that one day. Many of these accidents involved drivers losing control of their vehicles and running off the road, but others had vehicles slamming into each other. In one incident, a Virginia State Police trooper responding to one traffic accident had to be hospitalized after another car rear-ended his patrol car. The 19-year-old driver of the car that struck the trooper was arrested and faces criminal charges of reckless driving.
