Louisiana drivers are conditioned to be on the lookout for obstacles on the highways and bridges across the state. However, no matter how prepared a driver may be, coming up on a stopped vehicle in your lane of travel can cause some measure of panic. If a driver is unable to avoid an impending collision, the resulting car accident could result in catastrophic injuries.
A recent tragedy gave the Louisiana State Police the opportunity to remind drivers of the dangers of driving under the influence even though it is not yet clear whether the presumably at-fault driver was impaired. The results of a toxicology sample are pending. The same driver died from injuries suffered in the car accident.
On the morning of July 7, a man walked into a police station. His vehicle sustained damage when he "hit something" on Highway 92 earlier that morning. When the Louisiana State Police went to the area indicated by the driver, they ended up investigating a fatal accident.
So far, not many details are available regarding a recent head-on collision. The car accident took place on Louisiana 25 at approximately 6:30 a.m. When firefighters arrived at the scene, they discovered that one of the drivers was from their department.
Louisiana residents may not consider parking lots to be particularly dangerous. However, the unique combination of vehicles and pedestrians can easily lead to a car accident without ever leaving the parking lot. Authorities are taking the opportunity to remind drivers to be certain their path is clear before maneuvering through a parking lot after a recent accident involving a pedestrian and a Jeep.
Before 3 a.m. on Sunday, March 30, a man suspected of driving under the influence was traveling west on Interstate 10 through Louisiana. As he approached the bridge, he slammed into the back of another vehicle. The car accident resulted in the death of two people and injury to several others.
Car accidents can cause property damage along with physical injuries. A Louisiana man was involved in a car accident with a hit-and-run driver approximately one year ago. The incident caused property damage and a significant amount of injuries. The man recently filed a lawsuit with the Louisiana court system against his own insurance company claiming that it refused to cover damages associated with the accident.
It's no secret that passengers have very little control over what happens in the car. They truly are putting their safety in the hands of the driver, relying on them to safely navigate the roads and respond quickly to any dangers that might arise. Sometimes, the driver may fail in these duties. An accident in Louisiana recently claimed the life of rapper Ceddy Bu, know as "The Rap Sumo," and his family may have the right to file a wrongful death suit against the driver of the car in which Bu was riding.
Many Louisiana residents turn to doctors when they aren't feeling well, seeking relief. Doctors are supposed to be the ally against that which ails their patients. When the doctor not only fails to provide that relief but adds to the complaint, especially via negligent or reckless actions, that doctor becomes a danger instead. One great fear after this type of situation is that if a doctor is careless once, he can and will be careless again, which will eventually lead to the wrongful death of at least one patient.
Police of the Louisiana Traffic Division are still investigating a hit-and-run accident that recently occurred on Interstate 10. The accident ultimately claimed the lives of two people. Police say they have enough evidence to make an arrest in this fatal accident once they locate the driver who fled the scene.
