Older patients have more complications from spinal cord injuries

According to a new study, older patients with traumatic spinal cord injuries suffer more complications and have a higher risk of in-hospital mortality than younger patients with more severe ones. The research could lead to better surgical treatments for patients in Ohio and nationwide.

Factors in cargo tank rollover accidents

When a cargo tank rolls over on an Ohio roadway, hazardous materials inside of the tank can cause a fire or an explosion. The cargo tanks that are traveling across the highways in the United States are often carrying large loads of gasoline, flammable gases and crude oil. That's why the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration is very interested in understanding what causes cargo tank rollovers and how to prevent these accidents.

Ohio crash kills one teen, injures another

One teenage boy was killed and another one was injured in an early morning crash in Lorain on July 13. The accident occurred at approximately 12:42 a.m. According to the Lorain Police Department, a 1999 Honda was headed north on Kansas Avenue when it lost control as it crossed the railroad tracks at a high rate of speed. The car veered off the right side of road and struck a utility pole before careening to the opposite side of the road and hitting a parked Ford Explorer. The car then struck a home on the 400 block of Kansas Avenue and burst into flames.

Teens who drink and drive have high accident rate

Ohio parents know that drinking and driving is not the right thing to do. They also need to make this very clear to their teenagers that driving while intoxicated is not acceptable behavior. Statistics involving teenage and young adult drunk drivers are unfortunately grim.

Samsung technology could prevent accidents

Many Ohio motorists become extremely anxious when passing a big rig, but new technology from the electronics manufacturer Samsung could make things less nerve-racking for them. The Korean company has developed a system that allows drivers behind a large truck to see the road as if they were sitting in the truck's cab. While approval for use on American roads may be a long way off even if it happens at all, the technology does take an innovative approach to a long-standing problem.
