Maryland car accidents involving high speeds can be fatal

There are many different traffic laws in place intended to protect each person's safety. While it is often tempting to ignore some of these, especially the speed limit, such an act can lead to serious, even fatal, car accidents. For example, one person was recently killed and another seriously injured in a car accident in Maryland.

The accident happened just before 3 a.m. one morning in mid-September. Police claim that the male driver of a vehicle was driving too fast as he attempted to exit the highway via an off-ramp. As a result, the car apparently hit a pole causing the car to catch fire.

Police accuse the driver of the car of fleeing the scene, leaving his two passengers in the burning vehicle. A female passenger died at the scene of the accident. The second passenger was transported to the hospital to be treated for serious injuries. The driver was captured a short distance from the crash site. While it is unclear if charges have been filed against the driver, the incident likely remains under investigation.

This accident, allegedly caused by the recklessness of another, has caused significant damage to the lives of several people. In addition to their grief, the family of the deceased woman will have to cope with funeral expenses as well as the loss of her wages. The injured passenger will have to deal with medical expenses, if he or she survives the potentially life-threatening injuries, and may have to miss work during the recovery period; unfortunately, he or she may never fully recover. Many victims of car accidents -- or their family members in the event of a fatality -- have sought legal recourse in a Maryland court. Many of those who have been able to prove their injuries were caused by another's negligence were awarded monetary damages to help with the financial ramifications of such an accident.
