Sometimes a motor vehicle accident may be caused not by the negligence of any driver but rather by a mechanical failure. That may be the case in a recent Arizona school bus accident. Three children and two adults sustained personal injury in the incident.
Sometimes car accidents are not the fault of any driver, but rather due to poor design decisions by those in charge of maintaining the roadway. Indeed, road systems must be constantly upgraded to handle ever increasing traffic, and there are certainly sections on any roadway that turn too sharply or are not able to handle the allowed speed limit. Unfortunately, a failure by the applicable authorities to maintain the road could very well lead to a fatal car accident.
When cars and bicycles share the road, motorists have a heightened duty to pay attention to their surroundings. Unfortunately, accidents involving bicycles are all too common, as many readers may well know. Indeed, a vehicle hit a cyclist in one recent Arizona car accident.
Readers may be saddened to hear of the death of an 82-year-old Bullhead City woman. Though accidents happen every day on Arizona roads, that fact does not minimize the tragedy surrounding this particular incident. The woman was killed in a head-on collision that involved three vehicles along Highway 95. The drivers of the other two vehicles in the car accident also received injuries, although one of them refused treatment.
