Head-on crash results in woman's death and others injured

Vehicles are amazing inventions. They have propelled our society to places we never dreamed of being by facilitating the transport of people, goods and food. Unfortunately, they can be deadly to humans when serious accidents and crashes occur. A recent Maryland head-on crash resulted in a death and other injuries.

Authorities who are examining evidence of the pending investigation state that witnesses report a van drifted into the shoulder next to its lane of traffic just prior to the collision. Authorities believe the report may indicate that the 42-year-old driver may have then driven into the opposite lane of traffic due to an overcorrection from being in the shoulder. The van crashed into a vehicle driven by a 60-year-old female.

Authorities believe that the woman saw the pending collision and attempted to avoid it because there is evidence that she crashed into the guardrail along the side of the road. Unfortunately, she was not able to avoid the collision, and she suffered serious injuries. Just 24 hours after arriving at a trauma center, she died. The van driver and the passenger were also injured, and their conditions are unknown.

Unfortunately, it is difficult to escape serious injury when a head-on crash occurs. If victims are able to survive injuries, medical treatment can be indefinite and a financial burden. For families who lose a loved one following a crash, they may be left with the enormity of their loss in addition to the unexpected cost of burial. Maryland personal injury attorneys can advise anyone affected by a horrific crash of their legal options to seek compensation. Some victims choose to file insurance claims, and some may choose to file a wrongful death lawsuit in civil court.
