A Texas driver of a pickup truck was recently hospitalized with serious head injuries.

The lawsuit says thousands of consumers nationwide, possibly also some in Texas, may have suffered adverse effects after using EOS lip balm.

The Texas Department of Public Safety reportedly arrested a woman whose driver's license was invalid after she allegedly caused the death of a big rig driver who was attending to mechanical problems on his truck.

The operator apparently exited the truck to investigate a mechanical problem.

Usually, after a recall and some product liability lawsuits, design and manufacture modifications are made to resolve the safety issues. Hoverboards turned out to be extremely popular as gifts this past Christmas nationwide, including here in Texas, and being a brand new product, safety hazards were not identified before the boards were introduced to consumers.
