Alcohol consumption may be involved in hit-and-run incident

By now, every driver knows that getting behind the wheel of a vehicle after drinking alcohol is a bad idea.

The aftermath of a hit and run accident

Many Ohio residents have been in a car accident before, but not everyone has been the victim of a hit and run accident.

MIT researches distracted driving and how to keep drivers safe

In the United States, approximately 40,000 people were killed while traveling on the roads last year. Distracted driving in Ohio was the reason for many of those motor vehicle accident deaths.

A recent study by MIT researchers focuses on how drivers act while driving and the best ways of keeping them safe.

Multiple injuries following ATV, motorcycle crash

Last week saw a unique but no less serious accident in Walnut Hills, Ohio when police responded to a report of an accident shortly after 6 o'clock in the evening between an All-Terrain Vehicle, or ATV, and a motorcycle on Gilbert Avenue.
