Multiple injuries reported in Kentucky car accident

A Kentucky state trooper was among those injured in a car crash that took place on Sept. 24 in Corbin. The crash occurred at about 4:11 p.m. at the intersection of US Route 25E and Ohler Road. According to witnesses, a Ford Taurus driven by an 80-year-old man misjudged a left turn onto Ohler from US 25E when his vehicle was struck by the police cruiser.

Older drivers may benefit from safety technology

Motorists in Kentucky and throughout the country will be able to buy cars in the next few years that have more safety and automated features, and it is expected that these so-called "smarter cars" will be a particular boon for older drivers. Those who are older may be less agile in their movements or might be more prone to confusion at busy intersections. They might also be more likely to be injured in accidents. With these features becoming more common in vehicles, older adults might be able to stay mobile for longer.

Mandating speeds for large vehicles on highways

Kentucky motorists who get stuck behind semis and other large trucks might think these vehicles already go slowly on the roads, but a speed cap could be placed on trucks and buses when driving on highways. Federal regulators may mandate an electronic device that does not allow vehicles weighing more than 26,000 pounds to travel above a certain limit that might be set at 60, 65 or 68 miles per hour.
