Judge: Motorcycle death 'one of the stupidest things' he's seen

Some very odd things can happen on the road. If we're really lucky they wind up being just near accidents. Unfortunately, for too many people around Galveston and its environs, such accidents result in accidents that leave victims seriously injured or dead.

Piecemeal airbag recall may put drivers at risk

December saw the ninth fatality of a driver associated with Takata air bags. The South Carolina man's airbag deployed forcefully after he hit a cow with his car, sending shards of metal into his neck. The man died from his injuries. According to the man's lawyer, the accident wouldn't have otherwise been forceful enough to cause death.

The boy is fighting through swelling of the brain and multiple broken bones. Family members have stated that his condition is still very fragile.

Victims of car accidents, no matter what injury they have, are fully entitled to take steps to protect their right to a full recovery. 

Imagining a driving future free of accidents and fatalities

In 1961, President Kennedy made a bold announcement: The United States was going to safely put a man on the moon by the end of the decade. Nothing like this had ever been done. In fact, Russia had sent the first human being into space just over a month earlier. Nonetheless, America reached the moon on a momentous day in 1969. Since that time, "moon-shot" has become shorthand for any lofty or ambitious plan.

Woman's death by inmate-driven truck sparks suit against state

"You can't fight City Hall." That's a phrase most Texas readers will recognize. The idea it conveys is that if individuals in a particular jurisdiction are somehow hurt by the actions of government or one of its agents that they have no real way to recover for the losses they suffer.
