Greyhound bus crash kills two, injures eight

This blog has posted entries concerning truck driver fatigue and its effect on highway safety. Driver fatigue is often the causative factor in truck accidents and accidents involving other kinds of vehicles. Intercity passenger buses appear to offer a relaxing and safe way to travel, but sometimes, this image collides with reality. On Jan. 19, 2016, a Greyhound bus traveling from Los Angeles to San Francisco rolled over on Highway 101 in San Jose, killing two passengers and injuring at least eight others.

Chain-reaction crash in Whittier leaves seven injured

Multi-vehicle accidents are frequent occurrences on Los Angeles' freeways. They often begin with a minor collision and quickly escalate into a major incident in which several persons suffer either injury or death. A recent seven-vehicle auto accident on the 605 freeway in Whittier provides a clear example of how a minor collision can quickly escalate into a major traffic accident.

Mysterious acceleration blamed in crash that kills five persons

A New Year's Eve automobile crash in the area of Los Angeles, CA that killed five persons may have been caused by a faulty accelerator in a Toyota Yaris. The former editor and found of Consumer Affairs Magazine, in writing about the collision, noted that it was similar to an auto accident in 2012 when an off-duty CHP officer and his family died when their Lexus accelerated for no apparent reason.
