Motor vehicle accidents: Head-on crash injures 2, kills 1

When a vehicle veers into oncoming lanes, nearby drivers may find it nearly impossible to react quickly enough to avoid a potential disaster. Head-on motor vehicle accidents run a greater risk of having catastrophic outcomes that could leave those involved with severe or even fatal injuries. One person has died and two others suffered serious harm during a recent head-on collision in West Virginia.

Coal mine accidents: Incident involving trailer proves fatal

Even when working above ground, many coal miners may still encounter a variety of potential hazards as they handle job-related tasks. Working with and around heavy duty machinery comes with its own inherent level of risk and coal mine accidents involving such equipment can have cataclysmic outcomes. A 50-year-old man has died following a recent incident at a mine in West Virginia after he was struck by the wheels of a trailer.

Motor vehicle accidents: 1 killed, five injured in two-car crash

Being involved in a collision can be a scary experience and the outcome of the incident could have a significant impact on the lives of everyone nearby. Motor vehicle accidents have the unfortunate chance of leaving those involved with severe or permanent injuries or leaving family members in search of answers after an untimely loss. One person has died and five others were injured during a recent two-vehicle accident in West Virginia.

The dangers of motor vehicle accidents involving tractor-trailers

Most commercial vehicles are significantly larger and heavier than other vehicles, as they are built to transport heavy materials across great distances. As such, there is an inherent level of risk involved with traveling close to a tractor-trailer on West Virginia roads, as other vehicles may stand little chance of holding their own should a collision occur. While motor vehicle accidents involving commercial vehicles can take place under various scenarios, some tend to be more prevalent than others.

Motor vehicle accidents: 2 injured in rear-end crash

In some cases, it may take little more than a brief patch of rainy weather to affect the capabilities of all nearby drivers. Those who do not adjust their driving behaviors to match weather conditions run a higher chance of causing motor vehicle accidents to occur. Two people were rushed to a medical facility following a recent rear-end crash that forced one vehicle to veer across oncoming lanes and off the opposite side of the road in West Virginia.
