18-wheeler causes second of state's car accidents in one night

Two people recently died in two different accidents along the same stretch of highway in the state. The second accident included nine vehicles and was said to be the fault of a tractor-trailer driver. Although not in Miami, it was one of four car accidents that took place in one Florida county within just a few hours of each other.

Why cars explode into fireballs

When people think of exploding cars it is typically associated with the special effects in the latest action movies. In real life, however, we know cars don't spontaneously explode into a fireball after an accident. Or can they?

How many people die in car accidents around the world?

When the media and research community discuss car accident fatalities, it is often done on a national, state or local scale. In many ways this makes sense, as it effects people in our own communities and it is easier to examine how we may have a positive impact on fatality statistics closer to home.

Do you need a lawyer for a car accident claim?

After you have been in a car accident, you will likely have to make some difficult decisions. If you have been injured or suffered vehicle damage, you will want to file a claim with the insurance company. If you do so, you might also need to determine if hiring legal representation is worthwhile and if it will be beneficial to your case.

Worker takes valet-parked car, accused in pedestrian accidents

When a hotel worker decided to take a car from valet parking to run to the store, he probably knew he could end up in jail. The Miami, Florida, man likely didn't realize at the time, however, that he would be booked as the suspect in one of the area's hit-and-run pedestrian accidents. To make matters worse, the female who was struck in that incident died later at a nearby trauma center.

Florida man, working on car, killed by Takata airbag inflator

An 81-year-old Hialeah man was working inside a 2001 Honda Accord in mid-June when the airbag inflator ruptured and exploded, causing him to suffer head trauma. His death has been ruled accidental.

Who drives the most? Who drives the least?

As you probably can guess, the more time drivers spend on the road the more chances they have to get into an automobile accident. Although this is not the only factor, accident researchers do use statistics regarding the number of vehicles out on the roads and how frequently people drive when evaluating upward or downward car crash trends.

Who are the worst drivers, Teenagers or the elderly?

Two of the most dangerous age groups on the road are teenagers and elderly adults. Accidents with teens are often caused by inexperience, recklessness or distracted driving. For older adults, however, accidents are more likely to be the result of confusion, concentration issues or other diminished faculties.
