Alleged negligent driver causes passenger's death

A crash reconstruction team in Maryland is investigating a vehicle accident to which deputies were called shortly before 10 a.m. on a recent Saturday. A preliminary accident report indicates that a collision occurred at an intersection after an alleged negligent driver disregarded a stop sign. Reportedly, the crash resulted in one person's death.

Deputies explained that a 36-year-old pickup truck driver was eastbound when he entered the intersection without stopping. He then turned south, putting his vehicle directly in the path of a southbound box truck with a 24-year-old driver. The impact of the ensuing collision apparently caused the ejection of a 26-year-old male passenger in the pickup truck.

Both the driver and the passenger of the pickup truck were rushed to a hospital, where the passenger succumbed to his injuries and the driver was admitted with debilitating injuries. The box truck driver along with a 25-year-old passenger suffered non-life threatening injuries. Although the accident investigation is ongoing, authorities speculated that negligent driving and alcohol impairment caused this accident.

Whenever people in Maryland suffer injuries in an accident that was caused by a negligent driver, they can pursue financial relief through the civil justice system. Similarly, the surviving family members of deceased victims may file wrongful death lawsuits -- even if they were passengers in the vehicle of the negligent party. An experienced personal injury attorney can provide the necessary support and guidance throughout any of these legal proceedings. Damage recovery could be obtained for medical expenses, end-of-life costs, lost income and other financial losses along with noneconomic losses such as pain and suffering and other emotional damages.
