Massachusetts motorist will not be charged for deadly crash

Massachusetts residents have likely noticed an increase in the number of bicycle drivers on the roads in recent years. For a number of reasons-including the rising costs of fuel, an increasing consensus of the benefits of a healthy lifestyle and a growing awareness of the need to curb the use of fossil fuels, more and more people are turning to their bicycles as an alternative form of transportation. Although this is certainly a positive trend in many respects, it has unfortunately led to more car accidents involving bicyclists. As bicyclists are relatively unprotected, they can suffer very serious, and sometimes catastrophic, injuries when they are involved in a car crash.

Massachusetts woman dies in five car accident on I84

Recently, a 41 year old Massachusetts woman who was driving in heavy traffic on Interstate 84 in Middlebury, Connecticut, was struck from behind by another Massachusetts resident, who was behind the wheel of a tractor-trailer.

Five vehicles were involved in this tragic car accident. There were eight other people that were injured as a result of the accident, one with serious injuries.

Fall City worker dies in tractor trailer crash

Recently, the driver of a tractor trailer who struck a bucket truck and caused the death of a Fall River city worker last summer was charged with the negligent operation of a motor vehicle. This charge carries a possible prison sentence of up to two years. In addition to criminal charges, the tractor trailer driver could face civil liability for the wrongful death of the worker. Due to the potentially catastrophic injuries that can result from a tractor trailer crash, truck drivers must comply with a number of federal regulations designed to protect other drivers who must share the roads with these often dangerous vehicles.
