Auto accidents can occur for many reasons. Crowded highways, inexperienced or distracted drivers, medical issues and those who choose to operate a vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol can be leading factors. As the population in many Maryland suburban areas continue to grow, the roadways are seeing a steady increase in automobiles. With more people behind the wheel at any given time, the odds are ever increasing for a car accident to occur.
An unidentified woman was driving around a parking lot around 8 p.m. It is unclear as to why she was perusing the parking lot. Reports indicate that she lost control of her vehicle and headed out onto a busy roadway. She struck another vehicle that was carrying three occupants.
Authorities on the scene pronounced the driver of the uncontrolled vehicle dead at the scene. The three occupants in the vehicle were taken to a local hospital and treated for non-life threatening injuries. All are expected to be okay.
A car accident can occur for many unforeseen reasons. Medical issues and driver negligence can leave unassuming motorists in a most unfortunate path. Should a Maryland resident be injured or fatally wounded in a car accident that is the fault of another driver, the victim can file a personal injury claim in a civil court. If the operator of the offending vehicle perished in the accident, victims can file a claim against the estate of the deceased. Any monies received can help to cover medical costs incurred as well as pain and suffering.
