MIT scientist killed in car accident

Boston is a busy city with many ways to travel through it. While public transportation is available to take people to their destinations, many people take to local streets on their bicycles and in their cars in order to travel around town. Due to the high number of vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians out on the roadways, collisions between them are not uncommon.

For area children, the school year is coming to a close and the warmer weather is calling them outdoors.

Drivers in and around Boston are familiar with many precautions that they can undertake to make their travels safe.

Many Massachusetts residents travel over holidays to be with family and friends.

Teens escape with minor injuries in late-night accident

While all car accidents pose a serious risk to the health and safety of those traveling in the car, people involved in a head-on collision have an additional split-second to react compared to those in accidents where a car plows into the rear of another vehicle. Those injured in a rear-end car accident often have no warning of the impending impact. Six teenagers were lucky to escape with relatively minor injuries in one such accident in Massachusetts.

Boston, with its heavy traffic and sometimes slick winter roads, can be a hazardous place to drive. When drivers are under the influence, car accidents are even more common. Those who are injured or who lose someone they care about in a car accident need to know their rights, particularly if alcohol or drugs are a factor. The family members of a Massachusetts man who was killed in a recent car crash are sadly learning this.

Metro regions like the Boston area experience many vehicle accidents due to heavy traffic from commuters, travelers, and commercial transport.

One Massachusetts driver experienced the effects of rainy pavement on what was probably expected to be an uneventful day, and it affected two other people.

Car accidents are sometimes caused by a driver failing to follow the rules of the road.
