Man dribbling from Seattle to Brazil struck and killed

Oklahoma residents may have heard that man who was planning to dribble a soccer ball 10,000 miles from Seattle to Brazil was fatally injured when he was struck by a vehicle in Oregon. The man was hit by a pickup truck from behind as he was walking south on US 101, a busy coastal highway. The driver of the vehicle has been arrested and charged with criminally negligent homicide. The driver, who has been cooperative with authorities throughout the investigation, was indicted in mid-June by a Lincoln County, Oregon grand jury.

The more surprising statistic found is that 70 percent of the respondents said that they consider these behaviors dangerous.

Antihistamines a danger for drowsy driving

We recently wrote about drowsy driving in our Norman Motor Vehicles Accidents Blog. Drowsy driving is an extremely dangerous behavior with symptoms that are very similar to drunk driving such as the inability to focus and a slowed reaction time. What can make drowsy driving extra dangerous at times is that it is not given the same respect as drunk driving.

Norman head-on crash leaves 1 dead, 2 injured

Imagine that you are driving home at night. It has just grown dark as you navigate residential roads. As you round a bend in the road, you see headlights up ahead.
