Four people lose their lives in wrong-way car accident

Freeways can be dangerous places, due to the number of vehicles on the roadway and the fast speeds at which they travel. Unfortunately, no matter how careful a person drives, he or she still could be involved in a fatal accident on a California freeway.

California sees decline in workplace injuries, illnesses

California is a state of constant growth and opportunity. Buildings, factories and homes are erected at an extraordinary rate in the Golden State's fastest growing cities, and factories and manufacturing plants are pumping out vast quantities of products that will end up in the stream of interstate commerce. Of course, construction and industrial occupations present certain dangers, and every year workers in these industries are injured on the job. However, Californians may be glad to hear that according to the Department of Industrial Relations, the rate of non-fatal injuries or illnesses workers are suffering on-the-job has gone down in 2016 to 3.7 out of every 100 full-time workers. This is a decrease from the six out of 100 workers made injured or ill in 2002.

Tired truck drivers cause dangerous collisions

According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, around 13 percent of truck drivers are fatigued at the time they cause accidents with other motor vehicles. Fatigued or exhausted truck driving is a problem for Californians and something that federal regulators have attempted to combat with hours of service regulations on the operators of large commercial vehicles.
