Stolen car going wrong way crashes into van, injures 9

Travelling at highway speeds increases the harm you can suffer in a car accident -- especially in a head-on collision. It is rare for a face-to-face crash to happen on the highway, but when it does it is generally a catastrophe.

No matter how careful and responsible you are, you may not have enough time to get out of the way of a wrong-way motorist going 55 mph or faster. The resulting wreck can cause you terrible injuries that leave you with physical and/or mental limitations the rest of your life.

YOUNG GIRL FOUND AT-FAULT FOR BICYCLE COLLISION THAT TOOK HER LIFE

The Redwood City police just released a statement that they will not seek criminal charges against the driver who fatally collided with a 14-year-old-girl who was riding her bike to school because she was at fault for the accident. The Woodside High freshman was on her way to school around 8:30 a.m. and should have yielded to the GMC pickup that was in front of her, but instead she attempted to make the same turn as the truck. She was hit, run over, and killed, shocking her family, her 1,800-student school, and the entire community. 

SAN MATEO JAIL MAY NOT BE SAFE FOR RESIDENTIAL USE BECAUSE OF TOXIC LAND

Just last week, the area in San Mateo named Chemical Way was cleaned of decades of toxic chemical residue because it is the proposed site of the new jail. The Department of Toxic Substances Control had recently declared that the land was too hazardous for residential use because it was so permeated by volatile organic compounds, yet the San Mateo County Sheriff's Department was hopeful that this cleanup would help. Even though the county cleaned the land to commercial-level standards, it is still too hazardous to meet residential toxicity standards.
