1 killed, 1 injured in head-on car accident in South Carolina

Few types of collisions may be as dangerous as those which occur when a vehicle crosses into the path of oncoming cars. Head-on collisions can have devastating results and those who suffer serious harm in such incidents could end up requiring long-term or even permanent medical treatment. One person was hospitalized and another died following a recent head-on car accident that took place in South Carolina.

The crash reportedly took place at around 1:30 a.m. on a recent Saturday. Law enforcement agents say it occurred when for unknown reasons, the driver of a southbound car veered into oncoming lanes and into the path of a northbound vehicle. The driver of the second vehicle was apparently unable to react in time to steer out of harm's way and the two vehicles collided soon thereafter.

Opioids: Affecting mothers and their unborn children

Over time, the United States' people have realized the impact that prescribing large amounts of opioids has had on the community. While opioids are needed for extreme pain, and sometimes for chronic pain, the reality is that they can be highly addictive.

Two groups who have suffered and who may have been overlooked are mothers and their children. According to experts, many women who struggled with opioid abuse also used other drugs, putting themselves and their children at risk.

Why should you modify your custody schedule through the court?

You and your ex-spouse have been using your child custody arrangement for a few years. Your child was only 2 when you divorced, so it made sense to stick to the same plan while they weren't attending school.

Now, you're preparing to enter them into preschool and kindergarten the following year. You want to make sure whatever schedule you have in place takes this into consideration. Should you consider modifying your child custody agreement in court?

1 killed, 2 injured in car accident involving failure to yield

Being prepared to react to the actions of a driver who fails to adhere to a traffic light or stop sign upon approaching an intersection can be nearly impossible at times. Collisions that take place under such circumstances could lead to chain reaction incidents that place the safety of everyone involved at risk. One person died and two others suffered injuries during a recent car accident at an intersection in South Carolina.

Authorities have advised that the crash took place just before 7 a.m. on a recent Friday. According to reports, a driver failed to yield upon approaching an intersection, crashing into a second vehicle shortly thereafter. The impact of the crash reportedly prompted a chain reaction incident involving up to four vehicles altogether.

How a DUI can cause and affect a divorce

A divorce usually occurs when spouses have grown apart significantly and no longer share the same perspective. It's fairly common for heavy drinking to be an issue for one or both spouses during the divorce process. This can be for many reasons: Sometimes drinking problems lead to tension in a marriage and eventually to divorce, whereas in other situations drinking problems can arise as a result of an unhappy family life.

If you are contemplating divorce because of your partner's DUI conviction, it is important that you take the time to understand how this can be dealt with. You may be wondering whether a DUI charge is a sign that you should end your marriage and if the charge will affect the divorce process in any way.

2 face multiple drug charges after search of residence

Being involved in an investigation into the possible presence of drug activity can be a stressful and scary process. Those who stand accused of wrongdoing in relation to such an investigation may face a variety of consequences, some of which could have a significant impact on their lives. Two individuals have been arrested and are facing multiple drug charges following the recent search of a residence in South Carolina.

According to reports, the investigation began after authorities claimed to have received information indicating that a man was inside a local residence on a recent Monday night. They claim to have arrived at the location soon thereafter and assert the man subsequently fled the scene on foot. After allegedly catching the scent of marijuana coming from the home, police say they obtained a warrant to search the property.

Passenger injured in car accident during high-speed chase

Attempting to evade a traffic stop is never advisable and high speed pursuits that stem from a similar scenario can be dangerous. Those who ride as a passenger with a driver who exhibits such negligence may have little control over the situation and their safety could be placed in harm's way in the process. Authorities are reportedly searching for a driver after a recent pursuit-related car accident in South Carolina left a passenger with serious injuries.

According to reports, the incident took place on a recent Tuesday morning after law enforcement agents say they attempted to initiate a routine traffic stop. They claim the driver of the vehicle chose to flee the scene, subsequently prompting a high-speed pursuit. During the chase, the driver lost control and veered off the road, causing the vehicle to overturn and crash into a group of trees.

Can the results of Breathalyzer tests be trusted?

If you are pulled over by law enforcement and asked to take a Breathalyzer test, the result of that Breathalyzer test could mean the difference between being charged with a DUI and walking away with no consequences. Since such an emphasis is placed on the results of Breathalyzer tests, it is often assumed that they are highly accurate. However, this is not always the case.

The accuracy of Breathalyzer tests has been a topic of discussion for decades. However, a recent investigation by The New York Times has found that the use of Breathalyzer tests is leading to innocent drivers being charged with DUIs, and in some cases, it is allowing dangerous drivers to stay on the road. The following are some of the reasons why Breathalyzer tests can deliver inaccurate results.

1 dies in car accident involving suspected drunk driver

A motor vehicle could malfunction at any given moment and having to pull onto the shoulder of the road and check on a vehicle can be dangerous under any circumstance. Should a nearby driver veer even slightly off course upon encountering a broken-down vehicle, the results could be catastrophic. One person died during a recent car accident in which a suspected drunk driver veered off the road in South Carolina.

According to reports, the incident is said to have begun after a driver was forced to pull onto the shoulder of a road due to some form of vehicular malfunction. The two occupants of the vehicle notified an acquaintance who showed up to help tow the truck. While they were preparing the truck for transport, a nearby driver suddenly veered off the road and collided with the other two vehicles subsequently striking the passenger of the truck in the process.

Common driving mistakes are responsible for most truck crashes

Commercial trucks are large so that they can carry as much as possible to their destination. The huge capacity of a commercial truck's trailer makes it an invaluable part of the modern American economy. Unfortunately, the size and weight of commercial trucks also make them one of the most dangerous things on modern American roads.

Given that truck drivers go through special schooling and must follow relatively strict rules about how and when they drive when compared with people in passenger vehicles, you might assume that drivers are usually not responsible for the crashes that occur involving large commercial trucks.
