Numerous car accident injuries are caused by distracted driving

Technological advances are supposed to make the lives of Alaska's residents better. However, an ever-increasing number of car accident injuries are caused by drivers who are distracted because they are texting.

Fatal pedestrian accident in Alaska city shuts down roadways

It is not unusual for the first reports of a fatal pedestrian accident to give very little information to the public. After all, the Alaska authorities have to piece together the events that occurred in the moments leading up to the incident, as well as those that took place directly after the event. They also feel a responsibility, in many cases, to protect the identity of the victim of the fatal pedestrian accident until his or her family has been notified.

Some Alaska drunk drivers accept they should pay for poor choices

Alaska drunk drivers who fatally injure others due to their negligence and bad choices sometimes realize -- and even come to fully accept -- that they are to blame for their actions. In fact, some drunk drivers recognize that they must pay for their crimes. While this does not bring back the people they have killed, their acknowledgements may go a long way toward preventing others from making the same mistakes.
