Maryland crash between van and truck results in 12 injured

Safety while driving can often be taken for granted because driving is essential for the daily activities of many Maryland residents. Cell phones, children, signs along the road and other drivers can often distract drivers from maintaining safety at all times. One recent two-vehicle crash has resulted in injuries for 12 people.

The accident occurred on U.S. 15 between a pickup truck and a 15-person passenger van. The van was traveling north and the pickup driver was traveling southbound when the driver swerved and collided with the van. Accident investigators have not confirmed the pickup driver's account of actions prior to the collision but took photos and measured tire tracks to add to the evidence.

The van was occupied by 10 non-English-speaking occupants, and the pickup truck also contained a passenger. All occupants of both vehicles were injured, and one victim's injury required a life flight for medical treatment. The crash resulted in both northbound lanes and one southbound lane being closed as emergency workers rescued the victims, investigated and cleared the accident.

Until a victim is in the midst of the aftermath of a vehicle crash, the effects on their daily life cannot be fully understood. Maryland personal injury attorneys can help a victim understand the magnitude of accident-related costs and the impact a collision can have on their daily life. In car accidents where one driver may have been negligent and did not ensure safety, attorneys can assist victims in filing a lawsuit in civil court for possible compensation of documented financial loss.
