Wheelchair Users Are More Likely To Die In Car Accidents

A recent analysis of United States crash data has revealed that individuals who use wheelchairs are more likely to die in a car accident than other pedestrians by as much as 36 percent, according to a Fox News report. Furthermore, the risk of death for male wheelchair users was five times higher when compared their female counterparts. Unfortunately, the data - which was used from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) failed to reveal the reasons why individuals in wheelchairs are more vulnerable than other pedestrians. 

Drivers Not Charged in Auto Accident That Killed Infant

An MLive news report states that two drivers who were involved in a auto accident that resulted in the death of a 4-year-old girl and a 10-month-old girl who were not properly restrained in the vehicle will not face charges, according to authorities. Late afternoon in mid-September of this year a Toyota driven by 22-year-old Tanjela Williams supposedly stopped in the passing lane. The reason - she was removing a bucket that was stuck underneath her vehicle. But before Williams could get out of her vehicle a Chevy Camaro rammed into the back of the car. Williams' car had a total of four passengers: aside from one other adult, the car carried three boys ages 5, 6 and 10-months and a 4-year-old girl. The youngest children died from their injuries, as did the 16-year-old driver of the Camaro, Alayna Rishaug. Williams remains hospitalized in long-term care. 

Lead Poisoning Investigations Failed in Cleveland

Cleveland's city office responsible for protecting children from lead poisoning allegedly failed its residents. According to a Cleveland.com report, despite city officials being warned about a backlog of open lead poisoning cases, the city responded by simply closing cases - without conducting investigations. Specifically, over the span of five years the city completed investigations in less than 25 percent of cases.
