Driver found after deadly hit-and-run crash on Interstate 270

A hit-and-run driver is a person who flees the scene of an accident. That accident may or may not have resulted in injuries. The point is that the person did not think to stop, even though someone could have been in serious pain or in a life-threatening position.

Cellphones: Just as dangerous as drunk driving

Distracted driving is always dangerous, and even though certain habits have started to decline, there are always new distractions to watch out for. For example, while texting and driving isn't allowed any longer in most states, people can still become distracted with voice calls. If not voice calls, then perhaps with video calls, which not only allow them to talk but also view the other party. It's not safe, but it happens more often than it should in moving vehicles.

Hit-and-run drivers should be found and held responsible

A personal injury isn't always so severe that it leaves you with lasting disabilities, but it can be serious enough that you're temporarily unable to work and provide for yourself or your family. When you get hurt, it's typically your right to pursue a claim against the person who injured you. If that person has insurance, you can make an insurance claim. If not, then a personal injury lawsuit might be called for.

Distracted driving: Eating is a risk to your safety

Distracted driving is a major concern in America, but one kind of distraction you might not think about as much is eating behind the wheel. Many people do it, and it may seem like something you should do because, at the end of the day, that's what a drive-thru is for, right?

Know your rights after you're in a hit-and-run collision

It's a horrifying thought to believe that someone would leave the scene of an accident in which you're badly hurt. You may be unable to make a call for help or even to move from the position you're in. You could be trapped in your vehicle or struggle with confusion from a head injury.
