Tracy Morgan, former Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock cast member, will return to the SNL studio as host on October 17th according to NBC. Although many former cast members have made a return to SNL in the show’s longstanding history, this one is sure to be remembered. The 46-year-old’s return is especially significant due to the serious car accident he experienced on June 7th, 2014.
Tragedies on the road can be a stark reminder that accidents can happen to anybody at anytime. In some manslaughter cases, there are no malicious intents or traces of drugs and alcohol. Sometimes, accidents simply happen. This does not absolve victims of their rights to compensation when their family and lives are affected by these tragedies. As stated before, this can happen to anyone, even celebrities as demonstrated by the recent case of Caitlyn Jenner.
The number of bicyclists across the country has steadily risen as cities make efforts to become more bicycle-friendly. As bike lanes and greenways increase in numbers, more riders feel confident enough to take to the streets. Despite their growing numbers, they are still extremely vulnerable to negligent drivers who either don’t notice riders or don’t allow them the chance to ride safely.
Traffic accidents can happen anywhere and at anytime. Although all people are encouraged to drive safely and follow traffic laws, there is still a percentage of motorists who put their fellow drivers at risk. Drunk driving, speeding, driving under the influence, etc. are all dangerous on the road, but there’s been a rise in accidents of a certain kind recently.
Driving can come easy for most, but maneuvering hundreds of pounds of steel on busy roads still requires undivided attention at all times. Distractions or carelessness can potentially put you and other motorists in harm’s way. Unfortunately, for a woman in Galveston County, another driver’s alleged failure to act accordingly brought catastrophic injuries.
Semi-trucks can be some of the largest vehicles on the road. These trucks are bulky, heavy and, at times, under the control of drivers who are overworked and under rested. Semis can be a huge danger to you and your family while on the road. A recent case in Irving, Texas involving a semi-truck ended tragically.
Most know that driving requires undivided attention at all times due to the unexpected hazards that can arise on the road. The last thing any motorist wants to do is cause an injury to their loved ones or other drivers due to a negligent disregard for the road. Unfortunately, for a Galveston County woman, another driver’s alleged negligence was the primary cause for her current state.
Drunk driving is one of the most reckless acts one can commit. It’s an act that puts both yourself and the people around you at extreme risk. Drunk driving can ruin families and careers by turning a mundane task into a perilous one, and it is the suspected cause of a recent fatal accident in Carrollton that left a motorcyclist dead.
Chances are you may have gone out of your way to provide assistance to people who have experienced a car crash. You likely contacted the authorities, made sure everyone was safe and stuck around until emergency personnel arrived. These actions are highly commendable, but you probably wouldn’t imagine becoming a victim of negligence while giving out a helping hand. Unfortunately, for several people in Lewisville, Texas, giving aid to a person who had suffered a car accident ended tragically.
Texas roads and highways are protected and overseen by a strict set of rules and regulations that work to keep every motorist as safe as possible. One of the most basic road rules is to halt when approaching a stop sign. However, distractions and negligence can often cause careless drivers to ignore this and other signs, leading to catastrophic accidents.
