Researchers and scientists who have been studying car crashes in Kentucky and the rest of the United States have made some significant discoveries about the nation's automobile fatality rate. When compared with nineteen other wealthy industrialized nations, the USA has the highest rate of automobile accident deaths. Even though that rate was showing a marked decline over recent years, the other nations included in the survey were decreasing much more quickly than America. The precise reason for these statistical trends are not yet known, and more research into the precise mechanism may be needed.
Kentucky space enthusiasts may have heard about a wrongful death case involving former astronaut James Halsell, Jr. According to court documents filed in state and federal court, lawsuits have been filed against him for a DUI wreck that claimed the lives of two girls and injured their father. The 59-year-old Halsell is also facing criminal charges for the accident of reckless murder.
