According to police, two sedans were involved in the crash just before 7:30 p.m. The first vehicle was reportedly going west in the lane on the outside. That is when the driver of the second vehicle made a left-hand turn onto the street and entered the first car's path.

Workplace injury still relatively common in slaughterhouses

Based on a recent government report, today's slaughterhouses are safer to use than ones in the past. However, the government's data likely do not capture every risk that poultry and meat workers face in the United States, including in Texas. Officials said that workplace injury and illness are still relatively common.

Between 2004 and 2013, more than 150 poultry and meat workers passed away from workplace injuries. The injury rate associated with workers in the meat industry is greater than that of the remainder of the manufacturing field. However, meat-industry injuries have a significant chance of going underreported.

The woman who filed the complaint claimed that a doctor did a knee replacement procedure on one of her knees. However, the procedure was reportedly not done properly. For instance, she said her knee replacement was not cemented appropriately.

The accident took place on a Sunday shortly after 7:24 a.m. Officials said the man, 60, was working at the kosher delicatessen and attempted to light a broiler fired by gas. The broiler suddenly flared up.

Premises liability suit filed against chiropractic office

Companies in Texas have obligations to make sure that their premises are safe before allowing customers to enter. However, in one case in another state, a chiropractic and wellness center is accused of failing to do this. A woman who claims she suffered permanent injuries as a result of the center's failure has filed a suit, alleging both premises liability and negligence.
