Car crash into side of Texas day car injures 6 children

It's a huge fear for many parents: they head in to work only to get a phone call informing them that there has been an accident involving their children. In this case, the car crash at the Texas day care thankfully did not result in any fatalities. However, six children were injured when a woman ran her SUV into the side of the building on Feb. 3.

Texas car crash claims mother, critically injures father

While many in Texas were planning holiday dinners and attending family gatherings, one family assembled with their loved ones for the funeral of their mother while standing vigil by their father's hospital bed. The two were victims of a car crash in which the driver of the other car may be facing serious charges. As the details of the incident become known, the children of the victims are looking for answers and calling for justice.

Car crash claims the life of a man in front of his own house

When driving long distances, it may cross one's mind that an accident is possible. However, to be involved in a car crash before one has even left home seems inconceivable. Nevertheless, the family and friends of a 52-year-old Texas man are in shock following an accident that took his life right in front of his house.

DUI car crash claims the lives of parents of 3 children

Frequently, Texas drivers encounter road closures due to accidents. They may notice glass or debris in the street, or see markers along the highway indicating the loss of a beloved friend or family member in a car crash. It may not occur to many drivers how devastating that loss can be or who may be left behind to mourn.

Car accidents at intersections can be deadly

Intersections in Texas and across the country are the most likely places for serious accidents to occur. Even if the light is green, a driver would do well to enter an intersection cautiously since car accidents are often caused by people running red lights. If a person is trying to race a light changing from yellow to red, it is likely that driver is accelerating, increasing the potential for catastrophic injuries.

Texas may see more car accidents without texting ban

The Texas Senate is prepared for its third round in the battle to ban texting while driving. The legislation failed in 2013 and 2015 because some senators feared adding more laws to the books when existing laws already allow police to pull someone over for driving dangerously. However, advocates of the law feel it is past due. Too many drivers are dying each year in car accidents caused by distracted driving.

Two-thirds of all car accidents may involve road rage

Behaviors people in Texas do not find acceptable when walking behind someone on the sidewalk are apparently standard when behind the wheel of a car. In fact, in a recently released survey by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, almost 80 percent of drivers admitted to tailgating, shouting or swearing at a slower vehicle in front of them. Even more disturbing, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that more than 60 percent of fatal car accidents are the result of some form of aggressive driving.

Car accidents in Texas may decline with autonomous vehicles

The recent accidents involving self-driving cars have not dampened the optimism of proponents of this exciting feat of engineering. Driverless motor vehicles promise a future of safer highways and fewer car accidents in Texas and across the country. However, it may take a while for legislation and public opinion to catch up with technology.

Texting more likely to cause car accidents than daydreaming

It is a well-known fact that distracted driving can be extremely dangerous. Scientists from Texas A&M Transportation Institute and the University of Houston have recently reported that their studies compared different types of distractions and yielded fascinating results. Daydreaming, emotional distractions and texting while driving were studied, and it was found that car accidents were most likely to be caused by texting.

Four children survive fiery car crash on FM 3083

When children survive auto accidents in which their parents die, the tragedy is almost incomprehensible. The Texas Department of Public Safety reported such a tragic car crash that left only children as survivors. The incident reportedly occurred north of Houston on a recent Tuesday afternoon.
