Maryland roads are often always busy. However, during rush hour, the concentration of vehicles increases dramatically. Along with the increase in vehicles, there also comes an increase in the potential for a motor vehicle accident. Even a seemingly minor mistake could lead to catastrophe.
However, a big mistake led to man’s death in a recent crash that took place on a Maryland road at approximately 5:30 p.m. The driver of a pickup truck somehow allowed his vehicle to cross over into oncoming traffic directly into the path of another vehicle. The driver of the second vehicle, a pickup truck as well, was unable to avoid the resulting head-on collision. The mail truck behind the second pickup could not stop in time to avoid becoming involved in the accident.
The driver of the first pickup suffered fatal injuries in the impact. The other four individuals involved all suffered unknown injuries for which they were transported to Prince George’s Hospital Center. No further information regarding the survivors or their current medical conditions was provided, and at last report, the accident remained under investigation.
The parties injured in this motor vehicle accident could face significant recovery times, along with substantial financial losses due to time off work, medical expenses and other damages. Each of them may pursue restitution for those losses through the filing of personal injuries claims against the estate of the deceased driver. Successfully proving negligence to a Maryland civil court could result in a monetary judgment that may lead to the receipt of much needed funds to cover current and any future medical or other needs.
