When turning onto a freeway with potential passing traffic, it is important for drivers to make sure the road is clear of other vehicles. Failure to do so might result in a traffic violation, but it could also cause an accident involving personal injuries. In the worst case scenario, this type of carelessness can even cause or contributed to a fatality. Unfortunately, this is what happened in a recent fatal accident in Louisiana.
It goes without saying that car accidents often have devastating results. This was the case in a recent Louisiana car accident involving a church van and a pickup truck. The church van, which was carrying 15 children, overturned after a pickup truck ran a stop sign and collided with the van.
