Child injured by errant shot from hunter

Tragedy was averted when a child riding a school bus was only grazed by a passing bullet. The Memphis Commercial Appeal reported that a child riding in a Panola County School bus with other students was hit in the back. The bullet reportedly went through a side window and struck the student. He was taken to a local hospital and treated. He is expected to have a full recovery.

Icy conditions can lead to tragic results

In a prior post, we warned our readers about the perils of winter driving in Mississippi and Tennessee. Essentially, black ice is an unpredictable and unforgiving road condition that can lead to tragic accidents. With the recent cold weather passing through our region, we find it prudent to remind our readers of what they can do to avoid accidents.

New safety technology should be offered in all vehicles

In our last post we reported on how the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) proposed new rules regarding engine noise on electric and hybrid vehicles. The Administration was responding to claims that the lack of noise from these vehicles created a hazard to bicyclists and pedestrians who often relied on the sound of a car coming to determine whether it was safe to cross the street.

NHTSA proposes engine noise requirements for hybrids

Imagine the commanding growl of a V-8 engine coming from a Toyota Prius, or the throaty roar of a sports car coming from a Nissan Leaf. Indeed, these are far-fetched comparisons, but they are examples of some of the sounds contemplated through a new proposal set forth by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in an effort to reduce the risk of pedestrians being injured by electric cars and hybrids.

Celebrity photographer hit and killed by SUV

The relationship between photographers and celebrities will likely become more complicated in the new year after a 29-year-old photographer was killed trying to take pictures of Justin Bieber's car. The California Highway Patrol stopped his Ferrari on the 405 Freeway just before 6:00 p.m. on New Year's Day. The photographer stopped his car on a windy portion of Sepulveda Boulevard and crossed the road to get a prime shot of the pop superstar. A picture of a high-profile celebrity in legal trouble could yield more than $100,000.
