A drunk driver going the wrong-way on I-95 at 96 miles per hour crashed into an automobile killing the driver of that car. The fatal accident killed Robert L. Thomas and severely injured Franshaw Jackson. Jackson suffered injuries to his heart, chest and brain. It is hard for me to call the wreck and accident. Drunk driving is not an accident. It is a criminal act. Don't drink and drive. Drinking and driving is a deadly mix.

Alcohol was a factor in a fatal car crash that killed four and severely injured one. The wreck occurred on Rt. 3 about six miles east of Culpeper when a 2002 Chevy Tahoe crossed into the wrong lane and hit a 2004 Toyota Corolla head-on. The speculation is that crash was the result of a drunk driver. The deceased are Tyler Scott Harlow 20, Joseph Lee Sahnow 20; Tianna V. Jones 19; and James B.

Posted by John Harris on Tue, Mar 24, 2009 @ 04:44 AM

Dodge Ram Truck Defect

For the second time during model year 2009 their is a recall on Dodge Ram 2500/3500 trucks.  Visit Consumeraffairs.com for details. Basically the problem is a defective clutch. The recall involves those trucks which have the heavy duty cab chassis with manual transmissions and power adjustable pedals. The problem is that the clutch may not disengage because the master cylinder and the clutch pedal connecting rod may become disconnected. This could lead to an auto accident and fatal or serious injuries. You may wish to call Chrysler at 1-800-853-1403 or call the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) at 1-888-327-4236. If you are involved in an accident as a result of this defect, contact John Bisnar.   John is the top lawyer dealing with Auto product defects.

Fatal tractor-trailer crash on U.S. 17 in Stafford

Posted by John Harris on Sun, Mar 22, 2009 @ 04:31 PM

A fatal crash in Stafford on Rt. 17 killed Susan Lee Haines.  The conduct of the tractor-trailer driver was more than reckless.  The truck driver's conduct was totally outrageous.  He caused the wreck because he was driving a tractor trailer with part of the front brakes missing.  After he removed the some of the parts to the front brakes, he towed a load of sand which weighed 83,000 pounds.  It is no surprise that he ran a red light and killed someone.

Three people killed in three separate auto accidents. Three people killed were not wearing their seat belts.

Posted by John Harris on Sat, Jan 31, 2009 @ 11:44 AM

Last year by January 30th, 53 people had been killed on Virginia roads. This year by January 30th, 53 people had also been killed. The last three that were killed died in accidents caused by icy roads. The interesting and alarming thing about the three most recent deaths is that each of those killed were not wearing their seat belts. Two of the three who were not wearing their seatbelts were either rejected or partially ejected. The lesson to be learned from these three deaths is that one should always wear their seatbelt. The idea that one can be thrown three of an accident without serious injuries or deaths is totally false.

Two Teens Killed in Spotsylvania auto accident

Posted by John Harris on Mon, Nov 17, 2008 @ 11:32 AM

Two Spotsylvania County teens were killed on August 21st when their Ford F-150 overturned and crashed into a tree. They were both wearing their seatbelts so I suspect the roof crushed down on them when it rolled over. This would fit some of the recent article regarding inadequate roof support. This is sometimes called inadequate rollover protection. What are your thoughts.
