Major pile-up crash injures 9 people, involves 22 vehicles

While the following story did not occur here in Stockton, California, the circumstances of the wreck could have happened anywhere, and thus, there is a lesson to be learned from it. The wreck we are talking about happened in St. Louis, Missouri, and it involved 22 vehicles. The massive pile-up is an example of a type of motor vehicle accident that isn't exactly uncommon. Pile-ups like this happen quite frequently on highways and freeways.

Perils of self-driving cars apparent even as Google pushes on

As many California residents are no doubt aware, Google has been trying incessantly in recent years to get their self-driving cars on the road. That has led to plenty of testing on smaller roads, and much of the tests have gone perfectly. The cars they were using at the time were stock models from Toyota and Lexus. But Google has taken another step forward, releasing a Bug-like model that has no steering wheel, no brake pedal, and no gas pedal. It is driver-less in every way.

Know your options in the wake of a car accident

It may not seem like it when you look back on some memorable times that you have driven down the freeway and seen some less-than-responsible drivers sharing the road with you, but, in fact, every driver does have a responsibility to operate his or her vehicle safely and to ensure that others out on the road with them are safe too. Reckless driving -- in all of its forms -- can be the cause of a civil or criminal case against the reckless driver.
