Campaign aims to reduce bike, pedestrian accidents in Billings

On many Billings streets, and particularly in the downtown area, motorists share the road with pedestrians and bicyclists. Unfortunately, when a motor vehicle collides with a pedestrian or a bicycle, the result for the person on foot or bike is often serious injury or death. In 2011, 30 pedestrians and 33 cyclists were injured, and two pedestrians were killed, in Yellowstone County auto accidents. In an effort to reduce injuries and deaths in collisions involving motorized and non-motorized transportation, a local community group, Healthy by Design, has initiated a safety campaign called "Crash the Myth."

Unsafe working conditions lead to injuries in oil fields

In Montana and other states that sit atop the Bakken oil fields, workplace injuries have been an unwanted byproduct of the oil boom. Worker inexperience is part of the problem. Statistics show that in the oil and gas industry, the greatest number of injury claims are filed by workers who have been on the job for less than a year. But at least one expert believes the boom has hit the point that workers now have enough experience, on average, that workplace injuries will start to decrease.
