1 man dies in 2-car crash in Florida

A man in Florida is dead after a two-car accident that, according to initial reports, it appears that the other driver caused.

The Florida Highway Patrol said that the man was from Felda, but he was driving near Immokalee on Monday morning. He was 46 years old at the time of the accident, and he was behind the wheel of a Dodge Stratus. He was going south down State Road 29.

Safety tips for roofers

Working as a roofer puts you at risk on a daily basis. As falls are one of the most common types of workplace injuries and you will be constantly working at heights, a fall is a serious threat you must consider.

Fortunately, there are a lot of things that you can do to stay safe. Here are a few tips that can help:

  • Always use a harness. It may not prevent a fall but it can save your life if you do fall.
  • Before using the harness, make sure you get proper training so that you know you're using it correctly.
  • Whenever you're going up or down a ladder, do not carry materials or tools in your hands.
  • Get ladders that are long enough to stick about three feet over the edge of the roof. This makes it easier to get on and off with handholds, rather than just having the ladder end at the roof's lip.
  • Anchor ladders to the roof when possible.
  • Keep an eye on the weather. You never want to work when it's raining or when the roof hasn't dried completely after a rain.
  • Choose clean shoes with sticky rubber soles.
  • Always inspect your harness and other safety gear before entrusting your life to it. Look for red flags like frayed edges and stitching that is coming undone. Remember that gear does wear out and it's important to update it when this happens.

Disney World vacation leads to 4 family members' deaths in crash

A family from Massachusetts wanted to go to Florida's Disney World for a vacation in the colder months of the year, but the exciting trip took a tragic turn. The van they were in got involved in a traffic accident and four family members, spanning three generations, passed away.

Per reports, the accident happened on Feb. 18 at close to 5:30 p.m. The family was riding in their van on Route 429. At that time, most areas have to deal with at least some level of rush hour traffic. Sure enough, the van got caught in heavy traffic and had to slow down.

Wrong-way crash on I-75 involves 6 cars

The scene for a massive crash was I-75, the interstate that runs all the way from Florida to Michigan. A wrong-way driver in Florida caused a six-car crash.

The accident happened on Sunday, February 9, around the early hour of 3:00 a.m. Per the Florida Highway Patrol, a 25-year-old woman was driving south in the northbound lanes, behind the wheel of a 2020 Ford Mustang.

Critics do not approve of sentence after fatal bike crash

Last year, 15 cyclists were out for a ride together when an allegedly distracted driver plowed into the group. Multiple people suffered injuries and two people died. One was a 62-year-old man and the other was a 53-year-old woman.

The 34-year-old woman who killed them recently got her sentence. She will lose her license for half of a year, attend traffic school, do 120 hours of community service and pay a fine of $1,000.

75-year-old woman pulls out in front of motorcycle

A man is dead after a 75-year-old woman apparently pulled out in front of him in her car. He was riding a motorcycle. He struck the car and suffered fatal injuries. He was 65 years old at the time of his death.

Reports from the Florida Highway Patrol indicate that the crash happened right around 11:45 a.m., in the middle of the day on Jan. 1, 2020. The biker was heading down Curry Ford Road. He and the woman approached the same intersection, where the woman was trying to turn left. She was supposed to yield the right of way to the bike, but she failed to do so. Instead, she started to turn and pulled in front of the motorcycle, which rammed directly into the front of her 2015 Kia Soul.

Investigation finds plastic surgeons may not have insurance

Have you been to a plastic surgeon in Florida? Are you considering it? If so, be very careful about which office you choose. A recent investigation looked into plastic surgeons in Florida and found that 20% of them -- one out of every five -- did not carry medical malpractice insurance.

The problem is that a doctor without enough insurance may not have the money to pay, even after a clear mistake.

Teen pushes brother out of the way of car, gets hit himself

A teenager in Florida is in the hospital after getting hit by a car, but his mother is calling him a hero for the way that he acted quickly to save his 4-year-old brother's life.

Reports claim that the two were simply doing some holiday baking together and needed some additional ingredients. They set out to walk to the store. They had to cross a road and did so legally, at an intersection, while using the crosswalk.

Pedestrian risks greater in Florida than any other state

If you opt not to drive in Florida, and you choose to walk instead, it could be a decision that lands you in the hospital -- or worse.

The reality is that no state in the country has the same level of danger for pedestrians. The statistics paint a very bleak picture. Those on foot face the greatest risks here.
