Safer driving can reduce truck accidents in Kentucky

Semi-tractor trailers are a ubiquitous sight on Kentucky roads and highways, and most passenger vehicle drivers understand that commercial vehicles weighing as much as 80,000 pounds should be approached with caution. Accidents involving buses and large trucks claim thousands of lives each year in the United States, and 60 percent of these fatal crashes involve an impact with the front of trucks. Sometimes these front-end collisions are caused by distracted or fatigued truck drivers braking too late or not at all, but they are most often the result of dangerous passing maneuvers.

Maserati recalls 3 models over fire risks

Kentucky Maserati owners should be aware that the automaker is recalling 39,381 Quattroporte, Ghibli and Levante cars and SUVs, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The recalls are over two potential fire risks.

Unhealthy truckers more likely to be involved in crashes

According to a recent study, commercial truck drivers in Kentucky and the rest of the country who have three or more health issues have four times the crash hazard of healthier drivers. Truckers may also find it difficult to remain healthy due to the nature of their profession, which requires long periods of sitting down.
