Motorcycle enthusiasts often talk about the sense of freedom they feel when riding their vehicles. They also surely know of the associated risks that can come with this type of activity. The impending warm weather means that many more motorcycle riders will be taking to the open road. They have less protection than occupants of passenger vehicles, and because of this, they tend to suffer much more serious injuries if a crash occurs. This was the case in a fatal motorcycle accident here in Massachusetts a while back, and now the man being blamed has changed his plea in the criminal case against him.
People here in Massachusetts who own pets generally love them and often consider them to be members of the family. Unfortunately, that doesn't always mean that domesticated animals won't ever attack anyone. An animal bite can result in serious injuries and, in extreme cases, even prove fatal. Authorities are currently investigating a case in which a dog bit several children and one adult, and they are trying to determine why the animal attacked.
