Distracted driving can cause motor vehicle accidents

| Aug 14, 2018 | Motor Vehicle Accidents |

Car crashes touch the lives of everyone involved. Today, one family is mourning the loss of their loved one after another car veered into him along a two-lane road in Maryland. These types of motor vehicle accidents can happen easily when one driver is distracted.

The man who was killed was said to be standing alongside his silver sedan when he was hit. Authorities say the accident occurred shortly after 2:00 in the morning. Officials say that another sedan was driving north when it veered across traffic and struck the man and his car. He was rushed to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he later died because of his serious injuries.

The police department of Baltimore County is currently investigating the fatal crash. They are still processing the scene and have not established a reason why the driver of the second car suddenly crossed the center line. The driver of the sedan was transported to a local hospital and treated for minor injuries. Police have not indicated whether alcohol or a medical condition was a factor in the crash.

This Maryland family will forever mourn the loss of their loved one. They will endure end-of-life medical and funeral expenses as well as lost wages and companionship. Those who are hurt in motor vehicle accidents because of another driver’s negligence have the right to consult with an attorney. A lawyer who has experience in personal injury cases can determine if there is cause for a civil suit for monetary damages.
