Being involved in a fatal motor vehicle accident can be a harrowing experience. Those who survive the crash may have to live with the memory of it throughout the remainder of life, which can be challenging enough on its own.

Police are always on the alert for criminal activity. They are trained to notice suspicious behavior and to investigate within the boundaries of the law.

There are a multitude of scenarios in which a motor vehicle accident could take place. Struggles with fatigue or a lack of concentration are just two instances in which a driver could lose control of a vehicle, and in that brief moment, avoiding a collision can be challenging.
