Portable digital devices are great for keeping in touch with people, taking photos or just playing a game while stuck in a long line.

A head-on collision is one of the most terrifying types of auto accidents a motorist can experience. Even when two vehicles are travelling at a relatively low speed, the damage caused by a head-on crash can be catastrophic.

One of the most common causes of car accidents in Nevada and the rest of the country is careless driving. In today's fast-paced world, everyone is in a hurry to get somewhere.
