California may ban pee-wee football due to brain injuries

There's been growing concern in recent years over the brain damage sustained by National Football League (NFL) football stars. In fact, former professional players have recently won millions in a settlement saying that the NFL hid the dangers from them.

Now, California may be the first state in the country to take steps to limit children from playing the game -- at least until they hit high school.

What should teens know about safe driving?

Use these 3 tips to avoid truck accidents

If you're like a lot of drivers, rolling down the highway next to a bunch of big rigs is not your favorite way to travel.

It can be scary being the little guy on the road. Passenger cars have a significant disadvantage when it comes to accidents with commercial vehicles. The size difference alone puts the driver of the passenger car in enhanced danger if the two vehicles collide.

Ticking time bomb: sleep-deprived truckers

A port truck driver had put in 45 hours on the clock over just three days when he ran over a woman crossing the street. Another port driver who admitted often breaking fatigue laws ran into stopped traffic at 55 miles per hour with devastating results, injuring seven and killing a teenager. Still another port truck crashed in Long Beach, injuring four people after the driver had spent 15 hours moving containers.

Pedestrian safety: Staying safe when you're on your feet

It's tough to be a pedestrian on the streets these days. Even a careful driver could hit a pedestrian under the right circumstances and too many drivers have their eyes on their GPS or phone instead of the road.

If you're walking more for your health and well-being, make sure that you also take steps to keep from being the victim of a distracted driver. An accident with a car could seriously injure or kill you -- even if the car isn't going particularly fast.

Ruling allows resort's waiver for injury or death liability

Do you and your family go skiing every year when the snows start covering the slopes?

Helping a loved one avoid a slip-and-fall injury

Falls are more common and more serious than you think. One out of five falling accidents results in a broken bone. Falls kill almost as many Americans each year as motor vehicles and firearms.

The elderly are especially at risk of falling, and more prone to serious or life-threatening injuries when they do. Here are some tips for keeping yourself and loved ones safe – in the home or out and about.

Californian causes 'swatting' death of Kansas man over video game

An online feud over a video game and a wager worth about $1.50 led a man in California to call in a bomb threat that led police in Kansas to mobilize their SWAT team.

In the end, a man who didn't even play video games or own a gun lay dead in his own doorway. An anxious police officer had shot him almost immediately after he opened the door.
