Forklift inside semi sets off explosion at UPS Freight

In Rock Island, Illinois, workers at UPS Freight showed up at work like any other day, but unfortunately, an unexpected turn of events made it a very unordinary day. The day was just beginning around 5 a.m., when one of the workers turned over the ignition on a forklift. An immediate explosion occurred.

Trucking safety in winter

The winter months can present new dangers to any driver, but they can be extremely hazardous to truck drivers that are carrying heavy loads. Every year, there are countless accidents and fatalities due to the winter weather and unprepared truck drivers.

Hit by a truck? Here's what you should know

You were traveling on the interstate when a truck driver suddenly began to pull into your lane. He recognized his error, but it was too late. Moments later, your car struck the median and screeched across the truck's side. Your vehicle, although on the larger side, was crushed on one side, and you suffered serious injuries.

Black ice is one of the most dangerous weather hazards Illinois drivers face in the winter. When this type of weather is in the forecast, those who can stay in and off the roads should do so, and trusting your life to commercial drivers is not a good idea either.

Some people beat, starve or mistreat dogs with the intent of making the dog fight other dogs in an illegal dog fighting ring. Sometimes, dogs that have always seemed like great companions suddenly snap, perhaps due to previous abuse or inbreeding, attacking someone who just happened to be nearby.
