Fatal accident on U.S. Hwy 165 claims passenger's life

Many accidents occur during the overnight hours, at least in part because visibility could be an issue and drivers could be fatigued and/or impaired. Drivers should be paying more attention to the roadway under these conditions in order to increase the probability that everyone gets to their destinations safely. Unfortunately, not all drivers in Louisiana -- or elsewhere for that matter -- pay appropriate attention and risk causing a serious or fatal accident.

2 boys die in car accident caused by odd series of events

Some people are seriously or fatally injured in crashes that are started by an odd series of events that independently might not have resulted in any harm coming to anyone. Due to the timing of certain events, some Louisiana residents simply end up in the wrong place at the wrong time. Recently, two boys were killed and several other people suffered injuries in a car accident that began with one alleged drunk driver and ended with another.

Fatal accident takes the life of pedestrian

Even in pedestrian friendly cities, it is nearly impossible for pedestrians here in Louisiana and elsewhere to avoid coming into contact with traffic during their journey. At some point, it will be necessary to cross a street or walk close enough to traffic to risk becoming the victim of a serious or fatal accident. The circumstances under which a crash occurs can often be the difference between life and death for the victim.

Prison time ordered for two men in fatal accident
