3 children die in crash likely caused by drunk driver

A tragic accident in the Oxon Hill area of Maryland claimed the lives of three young children, and it is possible drunk driving is to blame. At the time of the crash, the kids were in a car with their parents, stopped at a light. A pickup truck struck the car, and reports indicate that the driver did not make an attempt to slow down, stop or avoid colliding with the car.

After impact, the truck actually came to a stop on top of the rear portion of the car where the children were sitting. The collision claimed the lives of 5-year-old twins and their younger 1-year-old sibling. The parents also suffered serious injuries. The driver of the truck appeared to be under the influence of alcohol at the time of the crash, according to those who responded to the accident. 

At this time, the driver of pickup truck is not facing any formal charges. It is possible charges will follow after the investigation is complete. Toxicology tests are still pending, and he is not currently in police custody. Whether or not the driver of the truck was intoxicated, it is likely his negligent actions led to the fatal accident that resulted in the tragic loss of three young lives.

After a drunk driving crash or another type of accident, victims may find it beneficial to learn about the legal options available to them. If a driver causes a fatal collision, Maryland families may have grounds to seek compensation through a wrongful death claim. In this case, the parents may be able to recover their financial losses and secure damages for their extreme emotional duress.
