It's not often that you hear about a crash that has a shooting involved, but that's what happened during one collision in Chicago.

This caused the SUV to crash into two unoccupied vehicles while the Buick ran into a pole.
Drivers have to do all they can to pay attention to the road and obey the rules of the road. When a driver isn't paying attention, falls asleep or makes an error, others may end up paying the consequences. This is why it's so pressing for drivers to put down their phones, get enough rest and to be prepared to drive.
The force of a car crash is so significant that it can't be understated. The angle of impact, along with other factors, does impact how seriously you'll be hurt, if at all. Of course, in all accidents, it's your right to hold the other person responsible, but the first goal is to survive.

When two cars become involved in a collision, the process in terms of insurance claims tends to be quite straightforward. This is because each driver is legally required to carry car insurance that will take care of damages in the event of a crash. However, if you are a cyclist and become involved in an accident involving a motor vehicle, the issue can be a little more complex.
Driving a motorcycle can be a fun and adrenaline-fuelled activity, with many enthusiasts choosing to ride their motorcycle on sunny weekend days. However, it is also a dangerous sport that claims many lives each year.
