Traffic accidents: Impaired driving may have impacted crash

Despite awareness and education of the dangers of negligent driving, some Maryland drivers continue to take risks. Unfortunately, any risks that are taken can result in serious traffic accidents. Accidents often result in expensive property damage, medical care for injuries or burial expenses for deceased victims. Sadly, a recent crash resulted in two deaths and multiple injuries, and it may have been preventable.

The crash occurred when a 28-year-old driver crossed from the southbound lanes into the northbound lanes of the opposite traffic. Unfortunately, the cross-over resulted in a head-on crash with a pickup truck. The pickup truck was hauling a trailer carrying a boat. Sadly, both the driver of the truck and the passenger suffered serious injuries and neither survived.

Following the initial crash, another vehicle traveling in the northbound lanes crashed into the pickup hauling the boat. The impact of that crash moved the boat and trailer into the southbound lanes, resulting in a fourth collision involving another vehicle. Four other individuals were injured in the process and transported for medical treatment. The investigation is pending, but authorities suspect that drugs and alcohol may have been involved.

It is understandably difficult for victims of traffic accidents to learn that the pain and suffering in the aftermath of a crash may have been avoided. Many victims find the advice of Maryland attorney to be helpful to file car insurance claims. Some victims may choose to file a personal injury lawsuit or a wrongful death lawsuit when damages exceed insurance claims.
