Accidents are scary, no matter the type of accident that one in unfortunate enough to be apart of. However, when commuting by plane or a train, the likelihood of an accident occurring is substantially less than when getting behind the wheel of a car because statistically car accidents happen more regularly. Sadly, though, a recent train accident right here in Pennsylvania has reminded us all of how devastating these rare accidents can be.
Large trucks are a frequent sight on Pennsylvania roads. Not only are they on the roadways, they are sometimes on the news. Trucks are often involved in deadly and newsworthy accidents. Their large size can turn even a minor incident into a deadly accident scene. A rollover accident was recently the subject of a blog post on this blog. In that accident, a truck rolled over before hitting another car. In that accident, people were seriously injured.
most of us will be involved in some sort of car accident in our driving lifetime. Even if the car crash is not serious in nature and everyone walks away from the accident unscathed, it is still a very unsettling experience. However, there are accidents that result in serious injury or death. These are the types of accidents that can make one appreciate the dangers of driving.
