Truck accident kills 4, injures 4 others

Summer is a time when American families hit the roads in droves. The children are out of school, you’ve got some time off work and you’ve saved up the money to treat yourself and your family to a fun vacation. But part of that road-tripping can involve dealing with the tractor-trailers that crisscross the nation’s highways and roads all year round.

Louisiana man killed in car accident

Cars have become such a part of our everyday lives that it's nearly impossible to imagine living without them. We jump in them for a quick trip to the store. We settle in to them for a long road trip. We use them to get to and from work almost every day.

Whether we like to face the reality or not, car accidents happen all the time in the Pelican State. 

Bus accident leaves woman with severe facial injuries

New Orleans, in large part, is a town that relies on tourism as the engine of its economy. Every year, people flock to the Big Easy to eat Po’ Boys, visit the French Quarter and hear some of the best jazz and blues in the world.

It’s a great way to see a large swath of the city from the comfort of a bus.

With so many vehicles on the roads, accidents are, sadly, not an uncommon sight.

Riding in a taxi in New Orleans, as with almost any major city, can be a risk. Your driver could be tired, distracted or even inebriated and you have no control.
