1 dead, 2 injured in 3-car accident
A man was killed in a multi-car accident that took place in Baltimore July 6. Maryland Transportation Authority police said that the fatal crash involved three cars and occurred on Interstate 95 North. Two other people who were injured but survived the accident were treated at Shock Trauma.
The accident happened just north of the Fort McHenry toll plaza and was reported at 12:15 p.m. Police confirmed that the deceased victim of the accident died at John Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. There were no immediate reports about what might have caused the three-car accident or whether any of the drivers involved are facing criminal charges. After car accidents like this, the drivers involved are often tested for drugs and alcohol so that investigators can determine whether intoxication was a factor.
While authorities were conducting an investigation after the crash, two right lanes were shut down on I-95. Later in the afternoon, the lanes and the shoulder were reopened for traffic. Though the south lanes of I-95 were not closed at all after the accident, police said that traffic slowed near the scene.
A person who was injured in a multi-car crash may want to talk to an attorney about filing a car accident injury claim. An attorney may examine the police reports and other evidence to determine which driver may have been at fault. In a civil personal injury claim, the injured party must present evidence of damage and of the events of the accident. A personal injury lawyer might be able to aid an injured victim in gathering such evidence.
