Car accidents: Off-duty officer killed protecting crash victim

In recent years, the reputation of law enforcement has suffered throughout the United States. Despite the negative media, most law enforcement officers are considered heroes for risking their lives every day to protect and serve their communities. One Maryland off-duty officer recently displayed heroism when he stopped to assist a crash victim. Unfortunately, it was the first of three car accidents, and he was sadly killed in the process. 

Maryland car accidents can end in tragedy

The urge to drive just a little faster can be overpowering. Perhaps the Maryland resident is running late for work or in just in a hurry to get home. Regardless of the reason, speed limits are in place to keep drivers safe. When drivers choose to disregard these speed limits, car accidents are often the result.

School bus driver causes Maryland crash

Although school bus drivers are trusted to get students to and from school, accidents do happen. Some accidents are no fault of the driver, but unfortunately, some drivers are found culpable. In a recent Maryland crash, a school bus driver was found at fault for reportedly speeding, which caused a severe accident that injured five. 

Suspected drunk driver crosses line, causes head-on crash

The choice to get behind the wheel while under the influence may seem like such a small one. Drinking and driving puts the driver's life at risk, as well as the lives of all others nearby. Recently, one driver's decision altered the lives of many when he allegedly caused a Maryland head-on crash.

Driving while under the influence is not only dangerous, but it can be a deadly decision for one to make. An impaired driver can cause accidents injuring or even killing themselves or other vehicle occupants. In a recent Maryland crash, such an event has reportedly happened. 

Driver's failure to halt at stop sign causes Maryland crash

Failing to stop at a stop sign is a very dangerous choice, not only for the driver and his or her passengers, but also for others in or near the roadway. Unfortunately, these road signs are often the scenes of many severe accidents. A recent Maryland crash was apparently caused by a driver's decision to speed through a stop sign, causing serious injury to an elderly couple.

Failure to maintain lane causes Maryland head-on crash

Learning of any accident, no matter how severe, can leave a Maryland resident upset. Learning that a motorist caused a head-in crash by failing to stay in the correct lane is horrifying. Just such an incident has reportedly happened on a recent afternoon, killing one and severely injuring another.

Serious crash shuts down vital route in Ocean City for hours

The southern area of Maryland is home to many forms of wildlife that attract nature lovers and camping enthusiasts alike, especially the Assateague Island wildlife refuge. Because of its location, there are limited routes on and off the island, and when a serious crash occurs, it can result in visitors being stranded. One recent wreck halted traffic for hours while officials worked to assist the injured and clear the scene.

Ocean City, Maryland, sees a great influx of visitors every summer from all walks of life. As a result, the quiet streets in the off-season are transformed into heavily traveled thoroughfares when the tourist season is in full swing. Unfortunately, the congested roads come with an increased risk of being involved in a crash.

Studies show some technology may decrease serious car accidents

Americans have a strong love for freedom and independence, and one of the most prominent symbols of those ideals is the automobile. However, over time, these machines have also destroyed countless lives due to tragic and often preventable car accidents. Many Maryland families have had their lives forever changed in the aftermath of these horrifying collisions.
