Witnessing a car crash can be a harrowing experience, especially if you just avoided the crash yourself. Your first instinct may be to immediately pull over and help out. But should you?

With school beginning in Miami-Dade County, it’s time to reinforce how important it is to wear a seat belt – no matter where you are sitting in a vehicle.

A new study released a short time ago finds that rear seat passengers can become human missiles in an accident, injuring not just themselves, but those in the front seats as well.
Jack was just trying to do the right thing when David and Diane approached him for a ride back to their car in his golf cart following the late end to an annual Senior PGA Tour event in Naples, Florida. The tournament was held at a golf club and community located about 20 minutes from downtown Naples.

Just outside the Talis Park Golf Club in Naples, Florida, LPGA Assistant Golf Pro Kristin Popowski’s life was forever changed after she left work late last year. While waiting to make a legal left turn on a green signal, she proceeded into the intersection, waiting for oncoming traffic to clear. When the light turned yellow, she continued to wait while oncoming traffic slowed to a stop. As Kristin began to finally make her turn, that’s when it happened.
In the blink of an eye, she was t-boned by a car that drove into the intersection past another vehicle that had stopped for the light. This sent Kristin’s car crashing into another vehicle before coming to a rest. Kristin blacked out, her airbags deployed and her golf equipment was scattered out on to the road.
