You should be safe in your home. That is the place where you should be able to leave the outside world alone and focus on you. Sadly, there are some accidents that occur that bring the outside in -- into your home, that is. A recent car accident in Shelby County was an incident that looked like something out of a movie.
Paying attention to everything going on around you is vital when you are driving. This is especially true if you are traveling on a multi-lane road that has higher speeds. Accidents that happen on busy roads, such as interstates, can often have catastrophic results. A recent car accident on Interstate 40 in Tennessee claimed the life of three people and left six others with injuries.
Going on a boating adventure is a way that some people choose to relax. Some people get in the boat to fish and others to just explore a body of water. Despite the seeming tranquility of going boating, it is still important for operators of boats to ensure that they are doing what is necessary to keep others in the boat safe. A recent Tennessee boating accident shows that boating accidents can involve serious injuries.
When cars are driving at highway speeds, it is important for drivers to be especially vigilant about what is going on around their vehicle to help keep the highway safe. Sadly, there are instances in which drivers aren't as careful as they should be. These instances can lead to serious accidents. A recent accident on Interstate 65 in Tennessee is a prime example of how a driver not driving safely can affect others.
Heading out onto the waterways to have some fun in the sun is part of what makes the summer season so enjoyable. For people who have boats, this time of year is also one that brings to mind the necessity of having adequate insurance. Sadly, not everyone who has a boat has enough insurance to cover property damage and injury claims that might result from a boating accident.
Paying attention to what is going on around you when you drive is vital to ensure that you and those around you remain safe. Taking your eyes off the road or becoming distracted for even one second can lead to a catastrophe. A recent Tennessee accident shows how one driver's failure to pay attention to the roadway can actually cause other drivers to get into car accidents.
Anyone who is driving must give their full attention to what is going on around them. Becoming distracted by anything else, such as cellphones, the radio, children or primping, can lead to an accident. Each day more than nine people die because of car accidents caused by a distracted driver, according to an estimate based on a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study. For families that have lost loved ones in car accidents caused by distracted drivers, this information hits close to home.
Taking pride in your community is one of the signs that you care about where you live. One of the ways to show your pride is to help keep the area clean. For one Shelby County woman, sweeping her sidewalk ended with a tragic accident.
A young woman was killed in Tennessee when the car that she was riding in failed to yield to traffic and was struck by another vehicle. After the accident, she was injured and remained in the vehicle while the other two girls, including the driver, got out and ran from the scene. They were later spotted and returned to talk to the police. By the time injured girl could get medical attention, it was too late for her.
The safety of anyone in a moving motor vehicle is often in the hands of the other drivers on the road. Accidents can happen when a driver is reckless, intoxicated, high on drugs, experienced or distracted, but sometimes they just happen because a good driver had a momentary lapse of judgment. No matter what the root cause of a car crash is, it can have an absolutely devastating impact on everyone involved.
