Missouri motorcyclist killed in St. Louis County crash

With thousands of miles of roads stretching from the Mississippi River to Kansas City, Missouri, is one of the best and most popular states for motorcycles. Bikers flock to the center of the country from both coasts, and the Show-Me State is also home to a large number of home-grown bikers.

The thrill and convenience of motorcycles can come with a cost, as bikers have to be especially vigilant to protect themselves and their passengers. Motorcycles, as well as bicycles, offer no protection to their occupants in the case of a collision or other accident.

Student killed in I-70 accident in Missouri

The Mississippi River brings boats to its shores, and airports like Lambert-St. Louis host thousands of visitors daily. However, nothing beats cars and trucks in Missouri. It is the most popular way to get around or through the Show Me State. Although the roads are generally safe, some incidents can happen that threaten people's safety and lives.

An accident on Interstate 70 near St. Peter's claimed the life of a student who had aspirations of becoming a teacher. The 20-year-old victim had slowed to a stop behind an unoccupied vehicle that had been involved in a previous accident on the highway.

Cutting truck safety regulations may causemore fatal accidents

Anyone who has spent time behind a tractor trailer on one of Missouri's interstate highways or roads understands the old bumper sticker that reads, "Without trucks, America stops." This is true since most freight and goods in America spends time in transit on a truck. But sometimes trucks can stop traffic, or a life.

Missouri sits at the crossroads of the country, and more trucks pass through the state than many other places. This has unfortunately contributed to the Show-Me State's poor truck safety record, as more accidents involving trucks happen in Missouri than on average and more people are killed by them.

Research: distracted driving is main culprit in hit-and-run surge

A new national study automobile service AAA shows that hit-and-run car crashes are surging, with a 60 percent increase in fatalities since 2009. A traffic safety expert who looked at the research said there are several factors important in the increase, but he says one in particular plays an important role in causing motor vehicle accidents: distracted driving.

“Motorists who text while driving are especially apt to hit pedestrians. Some, realizing their gross negligence, panic and quickly leave the scene,” said the director of the Chaddick Institute for Metropolitan Development at DePaul University.
