Nationals Manager Matt Williams Rear-Ended During Radio Interview

Every Wednesday morning, Nationals manager Matt Williams talks live over the radio with 106.7 The Fan’s Junkies in Washington, DC. This past Wednesday, while live and on air, Williams was rear-ended by an out-of-control vehicle. Nearly without missing a beat, the baseball manager quickly got back on track to baseball talk.

During the middle of his phone interview he stopped and said, “Sorry guys, I just had an accident.” He described the accident scene as it unfolded. The other vehicle had rear-ended him and hit another vehicle. The driver tried to get out of his car and ended up being chased by police, all while Williams was still on the phone. He described the damage to his vehicle and reported that a helicopter was overhead. He paused before announcing, “So what about baseball?” and getting back to the topic at hand.

Utah Court Of Appeals Rules That Woman Can Sue Herself In Fatal Car Accident

An estimated 32,000 people were killed in motor vehicle crashes in 2013 alone. Thousands more were injured. Sometimes, we become so accustomed to driving that we forget just how dangerous motor vehicles can be if not properly operated. Automobiles are fast and heavy machinery, which should only be operated with the utmost care. Most car accidents are completely avoidable. These are the auto accidents caused by speeding, distracted driving and aggressive driving. When these bad habits cause crashes, the consequences can be devastating.

Barbara Bagley was driving her family’s Range Rover through the desert near Battle Mountain, Nevada on December 27, 2011 when a fatal accident unfolded. She lost control of the vehicle and hit a large sagebrush, which caused her vehicle to flip over. Her husband, 55-year-old Bradley Vom Baur, was thrown from the vehicle and suffered life-threatening injuries. He was transported to the Battle Mountain General Hospital, where he died on January 6, 2012 as a result of his injuries.

After the deadly accident, Bagley sought permission from a Utah district court judge to file a wrongful death lawsuit against herself. Her attorneys, Mark Rose and Reid Tateoka, argue that Bagley has two separate and distinct interests in the lawsuit. On the one hand, Bagley has an interest as representative of her husband’s estate, and therefore has the duty to file this suit in the best interests of the estate. Separately, Bagley would be the defendant in her own capacity. As defendant, Bagley would be represented by her insurance company. Bagley’s lawsuit claims that she caused the fatal accident by failing to keep a proper lookout and failing to properly control her vehicle.

Initially, a Utah district court judge dismissed the case. Last week, however, the Utah Court of Appeals reinstated her action saying in a unanimous 3-0 decision that Utah statutes do not bar Bagley from suing herself in this type of lawsuit. According to the Salt Lake City Tribune, Utah statutes relating to wrongful death actions permit recovery when the harm is caused “by another.” The Utah district court interpreted “by another” to mean by one other than the personal representative of the deceased. The Appeals Court, however, interpreted this phrase to mean harm by one other than the deceased person. Under this interpretation, Bagley’s suit against herself is not barred.


Security Footage Shows Car Flying Through the Air and Into Building

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts offers its drivers the convenience of many fine Massachusetts roadways and several major Massachusetts highways. These amenities allow motor vehicle operators to navigate around the hub with greater ease. Every single time we enter the roadway, however, we are placing our safety, and the safety of our passengers, in the hands of Massachusetts drivers who may be reckless, impaired or distracted. It can be helpful in avoiding injury to be aware and mindful of other drivers while traveling on roadways, but that will not always stop a negligent driver from causing a collision. Careless drivers may cause serious harm and injuries to other drivers, pedestrians, and shockingly enough, sometimes even buildings.

The owner of a North York, Ontario auto repair shop was shocked and confused when he arrived to work to find that someone had crashed their vehicle through the side of the building. CNN was able to obtain security footage that shows the black Subaru flying through a fence at a high rate of speed and going airborne. The car sailed through the air for over thirty feet and crashed through the side of the building, stopping only once it hit a structural beam inside. Fortunately, no one was inside the building at the time of the crash, and the only injuries reported so far were those sustained by the driver. While there were no other physical injuries, the damage to the building was extensive. The repair shop will be unable to operate for an undetermined amount of time as repairs and renovations are being done to the building.
