Driver fails to control speed causing severe crash, injuring 12

Driving while under the influence is not only dangerous, but it can be a deadly decision for one to make. An impaired driver can cause accidents injuring or even killing themselves or other vehicle occupants. In a recent Maryland crash, such an event has reportedly happened. 

Maryland State police, county police, State Highway Administration and local volunteer fire company were called to the scene of a multi-vehicle crash on a past Saturday evening. A local stretch of highway was closed for nearly two hours as the result of a serious accident involving three vehicles. Supposedly, a driver traveling east failed to maintain its speed. This vehicle collided with a van, causing it to be propelled into a third car. Police believe the driver of the vehicle that caused this accident to have been impaired at the time the accident took place. 

First responders reported that a total of 12 people were reported injured, including six minors. Seven of the wounded were taken to nearby hospitals for treatment, and all others were treated on site. All the parties involved are said to be in stable condition. No charges have been filed at this time, but police are still investigating this incident. 

A crash caused by driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol can tremendously harm any parties involved. Some Maryland residents that have been harmed by the actions of another driver seek justice by filing personal injury claims in court. A successful case many not be able to heal your wounds, but it can help take away any financial burden caused by such accidents. An experience lawyer can help build a strong case and answer any questions one may have.
