61-year-old man gets 20 years in prison for crash deaths

In car crashes, it's common to see injuries. Sometimes, those injuries are so serious that they lead to death. When that happens, families are left with holes in their hearts and bills on their tables. It's important they're not left to deal with the fallout on their own. The person who caused the crash should be held liable.

It can take time to resolve car crashes, especially when they involve deaths. In one such case, a 61-year-old man from Independence reportedly had a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) that was close to three times the legal limit and was found to have narcotics in his system along with benzodiazepines following a fatal crash.

Multivehicle crash leads to multiple injuries near Florence

Crashes happen on highways frequently. There is always the issue of high levels of traffic, and it's easy to see how the stop-and-go nature of traffic could result in an accident. If you live in Kentucky or lower Ohio, then you're familiar with I-71 and I-75. Both highways are particularly dangerous due to the heavy traffic flow each allows for every day.

Multivehicle crashes aren't uncommon on I-71 or I-75, which is why the news about a multicar crash on I-75 on Sept. 16 isn't surprising to hear about. With traffic at a high near Florence, Covington and Cincinnati, this scene is all too common.

Amish man killed in alleged DUI crash

When you think about Kentucky, you may not think about the Amish. However, there are Amish communities in the state. People who drive around buggies need to make sure that they understand how to be safe. Spooking a horse, getting too close to the buggy and other unsafe actions can lead to fatal accidents.

People in buggies do not have safety belts, air bags or other equipment to keep them safe. Similar to a motorcyclist, riders in buggies can be thrown from their vehicles easily. That's what happened in this tragic accident.

Road debris causes thousands of accidents

One of the major issues with crashes on highways comes down to debris. Whether it's rocks or materials from other vehicles that clutter the roadway, there's a risk of people getting into a collision as a result.

Take, for example, someone driving on the highway with branches in the back of their truck bed. At high enough speeds, and without securing the items in place, they could fly into the air and onto the roads, impacting other vehicles.

Is an employee handbook important?

When you create an employee manual, there are a number of things you should include. Having the right policies can make a difference in how smoothly your business runs and how relationships develop in the workplace.

Even if you only have a small number of workers, an employee handbook does make a difference. It outlines what you expect and what your employee can expect. Approximately 87 percent of businesses with between 10 and 200 employees have employee handbooks, and it's time to make yours, too.

Personal injury cases may be filed to obtain compensation for medical bills or hospital visits if premises proved unsafe or if pool workers failed to dry the pool deck.

3 tips to keep your child safe from dog bites
