Fatigued driving made safer with technology

Many California residents probably remember the 2014 New Jersey motor vehicle accident involving comedian Tracy Morgan. He was a passenger in a limousine that was struck by a Walmart truck driver who had not slept for 28 hours prior to the wreck. The limousine was rear-ended, putting Morgan in a two-week coma and killing another passenger. The wreck would not have happened had the truck driver slowed from 65 mph to 45 mph. It brought extensive publicity to the dangers of driving while sleep-deprived.

Caitlyn Jenner could face charges for fatal crash

On Aug. 21, it was announced that Caitlyn Jenner, who was involved in a fatal car crash in California, could face a manslaughter charge for her involvement. Following an investigation, authorities reportedly determined that she was driving her vehicle too fast, resulting in a four-vehicle crash.

Research suggests dog attacks are unpredictable

Dog bites are the cause of serious injuries in California every year, especially to young children. Scientists at the University of Liverpool found that dog bites may not be as preventable as previously thought. The team interviewed dog bite victims to learn about what the victims perceived about the attacks in order to learn more about why dog bites occur.

1 dead and 3 injured in car crash on California bridge

A 28-year-old man who drove his 2012 Mercedes-Benz the wrong way in the eastbound lane of the Gerald Desmond Bridge in Long Beach remained in critical condition on Aug. 1. Authorities have not been able to determine why he was driving erratically. Earlier in the day, police had spotted the Mercedes crashing into event barricades at the Special Olympics.

California dog bite victims could be awarded punitive damages

California dog bite victims who believe that they are not entitled to punitive damages may find interest in a 2015 Pennsylvania court ruling. The case involved a dog with multiple incidents of alleged past aggression, including an incident in which the owners admitted to failing to restrain the dog after the animal had bitten a child. Neighbors reportedly complained to the defendants about their dog's aggressive behavior and a lack of restraint.

Limo safety concerns after recent crash

California is one of the few states to enact safety measures to protect passengers traveling in limousines. After a limo fire killed five women in 2013, California regulators took action by requiring limo companies to install emergency exits and provide safety briefings to their passengers. Now, a deadly limo accident in New York is raising more awareness about crashes involving large limousines.
