Pennsylvania horse and buggy struck by car, 2 riders killed

Drivers in Pennsylvania are well aware of our thriving Amish community, who can occasionally be seen driving buggies down our state's roadways. Naturally, these buggies drive quite slowly, often on roads that have much higher speed limits. In order to protect motorists and buggy drivers, the buggies are constrained by a number of laws. They must have high visibility reflectors, for example, and the triangular "slow" sign mounted on the back. These measures are intended to ensure that oncoming motorists are able to spot the buggy and maneuver around it, even at night time.

Tractor-trailer allegedly runs red light in 4-vehicle crash

Tractor-trailer drivers often work long hours, spending day after day on the road with little sleep and few breaks. This, however, is no excuse for tired or distracted driving; in fact, strict laws are in place to ensure that truckers remain alert while on the road.
