Truck accidents take a horrific human toll on Texas roads

Texas is host to many truck accidents, injuries and fatalities on its highways each year. Truck accidents happen in every configuration and factual scenario imaginable. Sometimes, when one accident has occurred, and the vehicles are all stationary and being investigated, another vehicle will come along and crash into the site of the first accident, causing substantially more damage than already occurred.

Will autonomous trucks reduce the incidence of truck accidents?

A new trend in trucking may scare a lot of people throughout the country, including in Texas. Autonomous trucks are being developed to go out on the highways without a driver! It should be added that, at first, these unmanned highway giants will have a driving technician operating the computer controls inside the truck. It is also predicted that they will reduce, not increase, the number of truck accidents that occur.

Grandparents arrested in plan to secure father's parental rights

Parents in Texas sometimes become embroiled in international custody disputes. This usually happens when a native of another country takes the children to his or her country and does not return the children. It becomes a complex process of international law and politics for the parent here to get any action taken against the parent in the other country. While that process goes on, the parent here must exist without exercising his or her parental rights.

Drunk driving punishment intensifies with the circumstances

The DWI laws in Texas, like the laws of other states, provide progressively tougher penalties as the seriousness of the circumstances increase. Thus, for example, those with one or more prior drunk driving convictions on their record will receive progressively increasing sentences, including possible time in jail. Getting in an accident and causing damage to property will generally increase the punishment.

Truck driver negligence causes accident with 1 fatality

The vast expanse of Texas highways sees its fair share of truck accidents each year. These are often violent and destructive events that increase the injury and death toll considerably in the state. For example, a truck accident occurred on Jan. 17 on the U.S. Highway 190 bypass near Copperas Cove. Several people were injured and one woman killed in the tragic turn of events that indicates truck driver negligence.
