Former police officer sentenced after causing fatal crash

A former Pennsylvania police officer was recently sentenced in connection with a fatal car accident he caused during a high-speed chase. After pleading guilty to third-degree felony homicide by vehicle, the 27-year-old man was sentenced to three to 23 months in prison. However, reports said he could serve as little as six weeks behind bars, and carry out the rest of his sentence under home arrest.

More drivers, a better economy factors into higher fatalities on the roads

Negligence and distractions cause car accidents; in the U.S. In fact, the National Safety Council reports that 19,000 people were killed in car accidents in the first half of 2015 alone. What causes these accidents, though, and is there anything you can do if you get hit by a dangerous driver?
