Arnold Schwarzenegger's Son Out of the Hospital

Unlike his father, Christopher was able to survive a tough family crisis.

Arnold Schwarzenegger may have not expected his son's ability to surpass a painful lung surgery and series of therapy. He could have been seen reflecting on her crashed marriage life and how it has affected his son. No wonder he granted Maria Shriver's request for spousal support after seeing how devastated she is beside the hospital bed.

Now that Christopher has survived his injuries, the Schwarzenegger family also seems to be recovering from the divorce issue.

The accident occurred two months after Arnold publicly admitted that he was fathering a 13-year-old son with the family's maid. Christopher went boogie boarding and was hit by a wave at a Malibu beach on July 17.

It is tragic to see how a once-admired family collapsed in an instant. Nevertheless, the accident left some lessons on the couple on handling tough issues with care.

Whether the divorce papers reach its conclusion or Arnold amend the papers again, we know for sure that Christopher will never be the same again. Such marks of surgery on his collapsed lung and broken ribs will remind him how pain can ease in due time.

Biker Missing in Pomona Motorcycle-Big Rig Collision

Accidents cannot defy physics – this is always the case when a smaller car collides with a much bigger truck. This is what happened in a road accident at Pamona Freeway, California when a motorcycle crashed into a big rig that made the rider disappeared.

According to news reports, the collision happened around midnight, Monday, at Diamond Bar Boulevard and the California Highway Patrol conducted a ground and air search but failed to find the driver.

Drivers who witnessed the accident claim that the motorcycle was in the slow lane and a biker jacket was seen hanging from the undercarriage of another automobile but the motorcyclist was nowhere in sight, a CHP officer said.

In any road accident, someone is always accountable. If the investigation shows that the traffic mishap was caused by the negligence of the truck driver, he is liable to face the legal consequences of his actions. If this will be the case, the biker can file for damage compensations against the big rig driver and the trucking company.

In a report by Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration conducted in 2006, top five common causes for truck accidents in California were noted:

1. Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
2. Reckless driving
3. Unfamiliarity of the road
4. Inadequate surveillance
5. Driver fatigue

Truck accidents in California are a concern for all road users because of the high fatality risks associated with such accidents. Drivers must take precautionary measures to avoid any life-altering road accidents because others’ lives are at always stake.

Pregnant Mom Killed after 134 Freeway Crash

Is the medical condition of a pregnant woman enough for police officers to stop her from driving?

Perhaps yes. Consider the rising number of pregnant women who were recently involved in car crashes in California. To be more specific, their medical condition could have affected driving conditions at the time of crash.

Dizziness during the prenatal period may cause a pregnant driver to lose focus while on the road. Moreover, related pre-natal conditions may affect a driver’s ability to prevent a collision along freeways.

However, prohibiting pregnant women from driving on California streets may spark protests among critics. Advocates of women rights may reiterate non-discrimination regulation among motorists.

What is left to do for state officials is to help these pregnant women gain access to safety equipment. It can effectively reduce the number of fatal crashes and help save unborn children.

Let us take the case of a 30-year-old pregnant driver from Los Angeles who died after crashing her car on 134 Freeway on Sunday.

According to Los Angeles police reports, the woman was driving westbound on Victory Boulevard when her car veered off the lane and struck a tree. Paramedics rushed her to USC-Medical Center, but she and her unborn child did not survive.
Police officers described how the blunt force caused major damage to the driver's compartment.

It is not yet clear if the mother died due to the accident or if her medical condition triggered its occurrence. Regardless of the cause of the fatal incident, Cal authorities still have to implement ways to prevent a similar cause of accident.

Needless to say, pregnant women need more protection from driving hazards compared to other motorists. Seatbelt and lap belt are not enough to protect the mother and her unborn child while behind the wheels.

When all things fail, California Highway Patrol (CHP) officers may try adding "driving while pregnant" to its list of prohibition.

Motorcyclist Dies in PCH Collision

Riding with a group is really fun, but hazardous.

Consider the case of a 24-year-old rider who has died after crashing his motorcycle into a car along the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) on Monday.

According to reports, the car driver was pulling out from the Point Mugu State Beach parking lot when the motorcyclist slammed into the vehicle's side.

Walter Gutierrez, the motorcyclist, died instantly after the crash. Mindee Martinez, the vehicle driver, suffered minor injuries and was transported to St. John's Regional Medical Center, reports said.

The California Highway Patrol (CHP) officers commented that Gutierrez was riding with a dozen other motorcyclists. The riders were approaching a restaurant near Mugu Rock when the collision happened.

Authorities found no trace of alcohol or drugs in the involved parties' system.

Riding with a group can be dangerous, especially when trying to move away from an oncoming vehicle. Reduced space can hinder the rider from preventing the collision.

Moreover, the driver may have been encountering enough trouble on the wheels while moving out of the parking lot, preventing her from noticing the presence of the motorcyclist.

However, if the car driver failed to give warning signals when pulling out, she may face liability for the crash. The surviving family members can establish the negligent act of the driver and seek damages from her.
