Trends in fatal vehicle accidents

In 1975, The U.S. Department of Transportation started an annual tally of fatalities that occur as the result of motor vehicle crashes. Their 2015 statistics showed that 35,092 people died in highway crashes, an increase of 7 percent from the year before. In fact, these fatality figures are the highest since 2008. Among other factors, the causes included speeding, driving while intoxicated and lack of seatbelt use.

Michigan to pay $7.7 million to settle wrongful death lawsuit

The state of Michigan has agreed to pay $7.7 million in settlement money over a police chase that killed an innocent bystander. The state Senate voted on Oct. 1 -- with a 30-5 vote -- to amend the state budget to account for $6.7 million in additional lawsuit spending, in order to pay for the settlement. Prior to the amendments the state budget had only allotted $1 million to spend on lawsuits.
