Wisconsin residents who view the Weather Channel may remember an incident back in March of 2017 that involved the stars of the show "Storm Wranglers." The duo was driving near the city of Spur, Texas, to chase a tornado when they ran a stop sign and collided with another vehicle. The two stars and the 25-year-old driver of the other vehicle died upon impact.
The roads in the U.S. are becoming more dangerous for pedestrians, according to recent data provided by a non-profit organization that targets traffic safety. Wisconsin residents may be shocked to learn that 6,227 people died while traveling on foot in 2018.
The fatal limousine crash that made headlines throughout Wisconsin and the rest of America had been previously cited for brake failures. Among the infractions the vehicle had been cited for were constricted under-vehicle brake connections and out of service brakes. These citations occurred in March, months before the Oct. 6 accident in upstate New York that killed 20 people.
Every deadly car accident is senseless. There is virtually no time when a fatal crash is anything other than a waste of life, because they are so random and often claim the lives of people who have done nothing wrong.
Many Wisconsin residents were horrified to learn about the pedestrian bridge collapse that happened in Florida on March 15. The collapse occurred in Miami, Florida, crushing eight cars and killing six people just five days after the bridge had been installed.
