Woman suffers serious injuries in crash between vehicle and bike

Ocean City, Maryland, sees a great influx of visitors every summer from all walks of life. As a result, the quiet streets in the off-season are transformed into heavily traveled thoroughfares when the tourist season is in full swing. Unfortunately, the congested roads come with an increased risk of being involved in a crash.

Recently, police responded to a scene of a collision between a bicyclist and a motor vehicle. While the details of the wreck were not released, they did state that the driver of the sports utility vehicle did not stop as required by law. The 21-year-old victim suffered critical injuries in the collision.

She was transported to a local medical center for treatment. Maryland officials did state that they have information relating to the identity of the driver involved in the wreck. They are waiting until the driver is officially charged in connection to this crash before releasing any further information.

The nature of the woman's injuries was not released, though she is likely facing a long and arduous recovery. Once the driver of the SUV becomes known, the victim or her family may seek information relating to their options of filing a personal injury suit against the party believed liable for her serious injuries. Though litigation efforts cannot restore the woman's physical well-being, a successful claim could provide monetary compensation that may eliminate the burdens caused by the financial losses that these accidents cause, thereby allowing the victim to focus her energies on her physical and emotional recovery from this traumatic crash.
