3 pedestrians hit in crosswalk in Pensacola

Three pedestrians were in a crosswalk in Pensacola when a driver slammed into them, according to reports. The car, a 2001 Chevy Lumina, was being driven by a 19-year-old man.

Landlords have to give you notice when entering to make repairs

Your landlord has an obligation to keep your residence in good condition. This doesn't mean that cosmetic updates -- like updated trim or new bathroom fixtures -- have to be made, but that the residence has to be habitable and safe.

Operating room distractions lead to mistakes

How various weather events can impact traffic

The Road Weather Management Program studies the way that weather events impact traffic and the condition of roadways all over the country.

Are hospital reporting procedures putting patients at risk?

Although new innovations in medicine seem to be a daily occurrence, the path to progress is not always without setbacks. In fact, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's website contains a site called MedWatch where consumers can submit an online report of adverse reactions or potential problems with medical products. The website contains features such as safety alerts and educational resources.
