Bicyclists and hit-and-run drivers in Louisiana

A large number of hit-and-run accidents occur each year in and around New Orleans, and some of those involve drivers who hit bicyclists before fleeing. Without the protective frame of a vehicle around them, cyclists are much likelier to be severely injured when they are struck. Many of the hit-and-run drivers are never caught by the police.

3 die after driver loses control of vehicle on Interstate 10

The Louisiana State Police responded to an accident involving a single vehicle in Sorrento on Nov. 7 that killed three out of the four people in the car. The wreck occurred at 8:30 p.m. at mile marker 189 on Interstate 10, and the investigators are not yet sure what caused the crash.

How to make driving safer

Louisiana motorists may not realize that the riskiest thing they do on a regular basis is driving a car. In fact, statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration show that motor vehicle travel is 300 times deadlier than commercial air travel.

Multi-vehicle crash results in fatality

Motorists in Louisiana may have been affected by a truck accident that occurred nearby the Mississippi state line. The accident occurred on the night of Nov. 3, on Interstate 10 in St. Tammany Parish. The crash involved two 18-wheelers and another vehicle. One of the trucks veered off of the road after the collision and fell into the Pearl River. I-10 remained closed all night until the eastbound lanes were opened at 6:30 a.m. the next morning.

Bus accident involving college students

Louisiana drivers should be particularly alert for buses, whether of the school variety or others, as a fatal accident in Pennsylvania involving a Lehigh University bus that was transporting members of the school's rowing teams demonstrates. None of the occupants of the bus were severely injured, but the crash left one person dead and the bus on its roof in the aftermath, as well as students being taken to three area hospitals for treatment and injury evaluation.
