Grandmother dies in hit-and-run pedestrian accident

Holidays can bring more traffic than any normal day. With the rush of shopping, visiting family and friends, and dining out, there is also a rise in foot traffic.

Connecticut driver accused of DUI causes double fatal accident

It's no secret that drinking and driving can be a catastrophic combination. Connecticut drivers are constantly reminded of the dangers of drunk driving through billboards, advocacy groups and the law. Though there are laws in place to thwart drunk driving, many drivers continue to take the risk of getting behind the wheel after a few drinks. Tragically, this decision can result in serious injury or a fatal accident.

No matter how great the motorcycle manufacturer is, mistakes happen and things ultimately slip through the quality inspections of some factories.

Residents of Connecticut owning a Harley Davidson motorcycle, may want to double check their mailboxes as a recent recall for defective motorcycle parts was just issued by the company.
