Alcohol use suspected in Maryland car accident

Legislators and police work hard to ensure that the right traffic laws are put into place and observed to keep drivers safe. Most motorists are diligent and cautious when cruising the Maryland roads. Some motorists  make the deadly mistake of operating a vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Two Maryland residents recently lost their lives in a car accident where alcohol is a suspected factor.

Anne Arundel County Police were called to the scene of a car accident around 2:28 a.m. Police say a car, driven by a 24-year-old male, was heading north when it hit another vehicle trying to cross the highway. The vehicle crossing the highway hit a tree and then a pole. The driver of the vehicle trying to cross the highway, a 26-year-old male, and his passenger, a 25-year-old female, were pronounced dead at the scene.

The surviving motorist was transported to a local shock trauma center and is being treated for serious injuries. Police suspect speed and alcohol use are contributing factors to the deadly crash. Authorities are still investigating.

Any person who has a lost a loved one or has been injured in a car accident as the result of a negligent or intoxicated driver has the right to file a wrongful death claim in a Maryland civil court. Compensation gained from a successful lawsuit can help cover medical costs, lost wages, burial costs and other damages recognized by applicable law. An experienced attorney can help grieving families work through the steps to pursue a claim.
