College student dead after truck accident

A college student has died following a serious accident in a community a short distance from Pittsburgh. The fatal accident is the latest in a series of major collisions along the same stretch of roadway, and officials are now looking into solutions that would improve safety.

A fatigued trucker caused a crash and should pay compensation

A previous post on this blog discussed how federal regulations require many, if not most truck drivers, to pull over and rest after they have been behind the wheel or on the road for a certain number of hours.

This post will go over the basics of the study and what it means for pedestrian safety involving trucks.
