Rear-end car accident injures several, kills child in Maryland

A dangerous collision can occur at any moment and may involve even the safest of drivers. In some cases, it may take little more than a moment of inattention for disaster to strike, and the resulting collision could have catastrophic consequences for everyone involved. A recent rear-end car accident involving two vehicles in Maryland has left several individuals with injuries and claimed the life of a 3-year-old child.

According to law enforcement agents, the incident took place just before noon on a recent Tuesday as a vehicle was attempting to make a left turn into a private driveway. Upon slowing down to navigate the turn, the car was suddenly struck from behind by a truck. There were six people involved in the crash in total, each of whom was rushed to a medical facility for treatment of injuries suffered.

One of the individuals in the car was a 3-year-old child, who was unfortunately pronounced dead shortly after arriving at the hospital. Law enforcement officials have initiated an investigation into the cause of the accident, but no further information was provided. Officers are also requesting that any witnesses step forward, as their testimony could prove essential to the investigation.

Should one party be deemed at fault in a fatal car accident, the victims could be entitled to compensation accordingly. Since filing a claim through civil court can be a complex process, one could consult a personal injury attorney for guidance. An attorney in Maryland can evaluate the incident in question and assist a client in pursuing restitution for damages through the civil justice system.
