A nurse who suffers various health problems, including regular headaches explained the cause of her medical problems. She says, some years ago, after working all night on an overnight shift, she got in her car and proceeded to drive home.

Like anyone else on New York roadways, motorcyclists are endangered by drunk drivers. However, because they are so much more exposed to the elements, and because motorcycles are inherently unstable, motorcyclists are especially vulnerable. Any collision between a motorcycle and another vehicle is much more likely to lead to serious injury or death than a crash between two cars.
Car accidents kill and injure many pedestrians and motorists in New York each year. Many of these accidents are, unfortunately, caused by drunk drivers. One driver is under the suspicion of drunk driving after an early morning accident on the highway left two people dead and three people injured. The drunk driver was traveling with three other young people when their car crossed the center line on the highway and collided head-on with another vehicle driven by a 65-year-old oil refinery worker. Two of the passengers in the car that crossed over died, as well as the 65-year-old driver of the other vehicle.
Drunk driving on the New York City streets causes a number of fatal accidents every year. A woman is facing charges after a car crash left her passenger dead.
