Motorcycle wrecks: Man fatally struck by SUV

Motorcycles can be a fun way to get around. Those who ride them often talk about how freeing it can be, despite knowing it can also be dangerous. In motorcycle wrecks involving another vehicle, the rider is generally at greater risk of injury, since he or she doesn't have the same protection that most other vehicles have. One recent example here in Georgia involves a young motorcycle rider who lost his life after being hit by an SUV.

Did Georgia's hands-free law affect the rate of car wrecks?

Authorities are always searching for ways to keep citizens safe. One measure that many states across the country have recently enacted relates to cellphone usage in moving vehicles.

Car wreck claims the lives of 2 children

Any car wreck that results in harm to a person is tragic, but ones that involve children can be particularly upsetting. A young life cut short is one of the worst things that can happen to a family. They may struggle to come to terms with what happened, wondering if they could have taken a different action that would have saved the young person's life. Many times, someone else is responsible for the fatal incident. This is what police say is the case in the deaths of two Georgia children, killed in a car wreck involving multiple vehicles.

The risks that go along with driving a car are obvious.

Cars have been on Georgia roadways in ever increasing numbers for well over 100 years. As the number of vehicles has increased so has the potential for accidents as the roadways become more crowded. Defensive driving is taught as a way to combat the chance of an accident happening.
