Hit-and-run car accident results in pedestrian fatality

Many Virginia residents enjoy walking as a leisure activity, a form of exercise or simply as an inexpensive way to get outside and breathe fresh air. Some people must walk since it is their only available form of transportation. In any case, pedestrians often must share road space with various types of motorized vehicles, and unfortunately, when a car accident involves a pedestrian, the pedestrian does not usually fare well. Such was the case when a woman was struck by a vehicle and killed while crossing a Norfolk intersection.

Will you be taking an evening stroll to see Christmas lights?

Even if you do not personally celebrate Christmas, you might still enjoy seeing all the beautiful light displays that often adorn Virginia neighborhoods this time of year. Some communities actually have friendly competitions, with pedestrians and other travelers voting on which displays they like best. If you plan on walking around town to look at Christmas lights, there are several safety tips to keep in mind, especially if you will have children with you.

Police locate, arrest man who fled following fatal car crash

Most people have a sense of moral integrity and compassion for others that would prevent them from fleeing a tragic situation, even if they may have been the cause. However, sadly, some people will run from such a situation, likely in an attempt to avoid the fallout. In a recent example, Virginia State Police located and arrested a man wanted for questioning following a fatal car crash in Culpeper County after he walked away from the hospital where he had been transported for treatment.

Mother awarded $101 million in medical malpractice suit

Most parents in Virginia and elsewhere can understand how it feels to wait for the birth of their baby and wonder if the process will be smooth and all will end well. Unfortunately, since a number of complications can arise, some people endure a difficult time, and some birth experiences end tragically. Such was the case for a mother in a different state who, recently, was awarded $101 million in a medical malpractice lawsuit against the hospital at which her brain-damaged son was born.

Head-on car accident in Hanover County results in two fatalities

Virginia drivers know the importance of staying alert while behind the wheel. To ensure they are able to focus on the task at hand, drivers are smart to avoid drugs or alcohol prior to getting into a vehicle. They should also be well-rested and free from any health issues that may impair their abilities. Drivers whose attention is diverted for even a few seconds can cause serious car accidents, sometimes because they end up in the wrong lane where they may encounter vehicles traveling in the opposite direction. While many factors may contribute to this type of car accident, when two vehicles collide head-on, the drivers and passengers do not often all survive the tremendous impact.
