Maryland man killed in drunk driving accident

Despite well-documented research and media outlets recounting sad tragedies, drivers continue to drive impaired on a daily basis. Fortunately, some may never harm another person, but the choice often does result in serious injuries or death of anyone involved in a drunk driving accident. Recently, a Maryland community was shocked and saddened by the loss of a man after he was struck by an impaired driver.

A 24-year-old man was apparently attempting to turn left into northbound traffic when he crashed into the victim who was traveling southbound. The 56-year-old victim was riding on his scooter when the accident occurred. The victim suffered serious injuries and did not survive despite attempted medical intervention.

Authorities believe there is evidence that the younger driver was impaired, and they have formally charged him with a DUI. He did not suffer any injuries, but witnesses say he attempted to leave the scene of the accident but was apprehended soon after. The accident investigation is still pending, and authorities have not confirmed if they will formally charge the drunk driver with additional offenses.

Any vehicle or drunk driving accident it often sudden and unpredictable. Families must cope with unexpected grief as they process medical and funeral expenses of deceased victims. Many families in Maryland with similar losses find the counsel of a personal injury attorney comforting as they seek to understand the implications of the accident. Some families may wish to pursue compensation through a wrongful death lawsuit in civil court against parties deemed negligent.
