Serious injury can occur in a boat as easily as in a car

The busy season has begun for the Louisiana Division of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) as traffic on the state's waterways increases. It can be easy to forget that driving a boat requires the same focus and attention that is required when driving a car. Every year, boating accidents occur, and some of them result in serious injury or death.

Louisiana boating season claims another accident victim

During the warmer months here in Louisiana, many people enjoy taking their boats out on the state's waterways. Many boaters fail to remember that the same distractions that lead to accidents on the roadways can cause an accident on the water. As if to illustrate this fact, officials report that boating season recently claimed another accident victim.

3 suffer injuries and 1 dies in two serious accidents on I-10

Many Louisiana residents would debate whether having to urinate would be considered an emergency worth pulling over on one of the many bridges along Interstate 10. However, that is just what one driver did recently. This decision led to two serious accidents in which one person died and three people were injured.

Investigation continues into deadly bicycle vs. car accident

In the aftermath of a crash, it can be difficult to find witnesses who either saw what happened or know someone who was involved. When investigators need information from the public, they often keep as many of the details as possible regarding the incident out of the media in order to be sure that any tips they receive are probative. Louisiana police often do not want to have to take the time to sift through information that is not going to find them the answers they, and the victims and their families, need in the aftermath of a car accident.
