Vehicle accidents surge in last few weeks

Accidents have been on the rise in the last few weeks here in Hood County. August is the most dangerous month of the year, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The NHTSA attributes it to more drivers on the roads during August. More teens are on the road because of the summer break, and motorists are traveling to family vacations and weekend getaways, the NHTSA pointed out.
