Florida has great weather for traveling by motorcycle, but a bike's design, size and weight can mean serious injuries when it is involved in an accident.
Police have identified the elderly couple that recently died in a car-pedestrian incident near Malabar, Florida as a 77-year-old man and his 70-year-old wife from Palm Bay. The couple was crossing Highway 1 on their way to a local cafe when they were hit by a car. They were declared dead by personnel at the scene.
Trucks have a tremendous economic impact because, given their size, they can transport heavy goods to many points across the country. Nevertheless, their design can put the lives of other people on the road at risk when they are involved in an accident.
A firefighter filed a lawsuit after suffering injuries while responding to a fire at a home in St. Petersburg, Florida. What is interesting is that he did not suffer the injuries from the fire or smoke but from slipping on a porch.
