Brake failure a frequent cause of commercial truck crashes

In terms of size and weight, commercial trucks tend to trump passenger vehicles. As a result, the drivers and passengers in the smaller vehicles typically suffer the most when the two collide. Because it takes so much to stop a large semi-truck, all trucks must have properly functioning brake systems. Regrettably, this is not always the case.

Construction’s “Fatal Four” cause majority of worker deaths

As someone who earns a living working in construction, you may be well aware of the various dangers you face each day when you clock in. You may not, however, realize just how many construction workers lose their lives to the same four causes. Known as construction’s “Fatal Four,” the four top causes of construction worker deaths resulted in nearly 1,000 fatalities in 2017, highlighting a need for enhanced safety protocols in the industry.

Illinois' problem with drunk and speeding drivers

Residents in Illinois unfortunately know that every time they get in their vehicles, go out for a bike ride or a walk or even just attempt to cross a street, they face the risk of being hit by a reckless driver. From people who choose to drive while texting or when they are too tired to people to refuse to find other modes of transportation when they want to drink, there seems to be no end to the factors that contribute to so many serious and even fatal accidents on area roads and highways.

Wrong-way accident on Ill. interstate involves multiple vehicles

Studies by agencies such as the National Transportation Safety Board and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration have indicated that accidents resulting from a driver traveling the wrong way are relatively rare. Of all the high-speed collisions that occur on divided highways across the United States, wrong-way crashes account for only about 3%. Nevertheless, they are the most likely to result in injury and death. A wrong-way accident north of Farmersville, Illinois, on Interstate 55 resulted in the deaths of two drivers and involved five vehicles altogether, one of them a Megabus carrying 54 passengers.
