A young Chicago woman was killed in a car accident recently after a group of people attacked the vehicle. The incident is under investigation and no suspects have been named or caught -- but community activists are trying to find the culprits.
Traffic laws are in place for a reason: to keep everyone safe. All it takes is just one driver's negligence to lead to an accident with life-changing consequences for everyone else on the road.
Back in May we posted about a state trooper who was killed in a Chicago accident after a truck driver fell asleep behind the wheel. Since then, it has come out that the truck driver had been working more than what is allowed under federal regulations. These long hours may have contributed to why he fell asleep behind the wheel.
A recent accident highlights just how important it is for employers to make sure the truck drivers they hire are in good health. If not, and the health of the truck driver leads to an accident in Chicago, not only could the truck driver end up being held accountable, so could the company the driver works for.
