Madison car accident kills 4

Posted on Monday, February 20th, 2012 at 10:54 pm    

Four people have died after the car they were traveling in struck a utility pole near Madison, Wisconsin.

The car accident happened around 5 p.m. on Saturday in Fitchburg. There were five men in the car, all apparently under the influence of alcohol. The 18-year-old driver sped through a stop sign and hit a utility pole. The force from the pole caused the car to flip over.

The driver was the only survivor of the accident, and he tried to flee the scene. He was apprehended a few blocks away and was arrested. He is being charged with four counts of homicide due to driving under the influence.

The four men that were killed in the accident range in age from 17 to 25, and were all from Wisconsin.

Our thoughts go out to the victims’ families and friends during this tragic time.

Wisconsin sees decline in traffic-related fatalities

Posted on Monday, January 9th, 2012 at 6:45 pm    

For the fourth year in a row, there have been less than 600 traffic-related fatalities in Wisconsin. The last time this happened in the state was between 1924 and 1927.

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation recently released the information regarding the 2011 traffic fatalities. Throughout the year, 569 individuals lost their lives in traffic crashes. This number is drastically lower than the five-year average of fatalities.

The traffic crashes accounted for in these statistics include vehicle crashes as well as pedestrian and bicycle accidents. The state is pleased with the declining number, but many officials believe there is more that can be done to reduce the number of preventable fatalities across the state.

Vehicle accidents can cause severe injuries. If you have been injured in a car accident, please contact the Wausau motor vehicle accidents lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier, S.C. by calling 800-242-2874 today.

Research reveals women injured more often in car accidents

Posted on Monday, October 24th, 2011 at 5:43 pm    

A recent study on display in the American Journal of Public Health reveals that women are 47 times more likely to be injured in a car accident than men.

These gender-biased results are said to be due to safety features. Vehicle safety features are typically designed with men in mind. Therefore, women who are, on average, shorter in height and possess a smaller frame lose certain benefits of these features. For instance, women suffer injuries to their lower body because they have a shorter build than males and therefore the seat belt does not work properly.

To reduce the number of women severely hurt in car accidents, the study suggests that vehicle manufacturers tailor their safety features towards the average woman’s body. These adjustments will aid in the decrease of injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident.
