The news is filled with tragic stories every single day. For example, reporters frequently provide details regarding deadly car accidents. Most of the headlines, however, do not involve a high-ranking church official who is accused of causing a fatal accident while under the influence of alcohol. One Maryland family is now left coping with the loss of their family member as a result of the accident.

Police claim that the 58-year-old woman was driving on a Maryland road while under the influence. She was allegedly texting when she swerved and hit the rear of a bicycle. The 41-year-old bicyclist later died at the hospital as a result of head injuries.

Reports indicate that the woman left the scene of the accident, going to her house before returning approximately 30 minutes later. A breath test reportedly revealed that her blood alcohol content was .22, well over the legal limit. She has since turned herself in as a result of charges related to the accident. It is unclear if she has posted the $2.5 million bail. Records show that this isn’t the bishop’s first encounter with drunk driving charges.

There are many public service campaigns intent on educating the public on the potential dangers of driving while under the influence of alcohol. In addition to these efforts, driver education courses also work to get the message out to the public. Even alcohol manufacturers encourage drivers to drink responsibly in order to avoid dangerous car accidents. Unfortunately, people continue to ignore these efforts, placing their lives, as well as the lives of innocent people, at risk. For example, it is believed that an accident in Anne Arundel that killed two people was the result of alcohol.

The accident happened at approximately 8:30 p.m. in mid-December. Reports indicate that a 22-year-old driver was traveling west on a Maryland road when he crossed the center line. Unfortunately, he struck a sedan driven by a 60-year-old head on.

The older driver died at the scene of the accident. The driver of the first vehicle was transported to the hospital where he later passed away. While the accident likely remains under investigation, police believe that alcohol may have contributed to the accident.

There are many people who travel Maryland roadways who are, overall, safe drivers. They try to follow all traffic laws and avoid distractions while driving. Unfortunately, some car accidents are caused by some of the safest of drivers who slightly misjudge a turn or distance. While the mistake may be out of character, it can still have devastating consequences, sometimes resulting in a fatality. Police are still trying to work out all of the details associated with one man’s death in a recent tragic accident.

Police were called to the scene of an accident at approximately 5:30 p.m. one evening in early December. According to reports, the 22-year-old driver of a pickup truck attempted a U-turn across the southbound lanes of traffic. A southbound truck driven by a 28-year-old driver struck the first truck as a result.

The driver of the second vehicle was transported to the hospital but ultimately died from the injuries he suffered in the accident. The driver of the first truck and his passenger were treated and released for minor injuries. Police blame the accident on the first driver’s failure to yield and driver error.

There are many measures in place to keep users of Maryland roadways safe. Legislators work hard to ensure that laws protect drivers and appropriately punish those found guilty of traffic infractions. Additionally, motor vehicle manufacturers work diligently to ensure that vehicles have adequate safety features. Despite these measures, car accidents still happen, and lives may be lost. Unfortunately, one man was recently killed in Anne Arundel in a head-on collision.

Police claim the 50-year-old victim was traveling on a Maryland road one afternoon in early December. A 33-year-old driver of an oncoming car allegedly crossed the center line, striking the first car head-on. After the initial collision, a sedan traveling behind the first car struck both cars already involved in the collision.

The victim in the first car was trapped in his car and died at the scene. The second driver, who police claim caused the accident by speeding and driving negligently, suffered severe injuries. The 58-year-old driver of the third vehicle suffered minor injuries and was transported to an area hospital for treatment.

As Christmas season and sales arrive, more and more people will be headed to the stores. Most would assume that they are relatively safe as they do so, but car accidents can happen at any time and at any place. For example, one woman in Maryland was seriously injured as she was entering a store.

The accident happened at a Rugged Warehouse at approximately 1 p.m. one day in mid-November. Witness reports indicate that an elderly driver was attempting to pull into a handicapped parking spot. For unknown reasons, the van then crashed into the store.

Two women — one holding a baby — were apparently entering the store at the time. One of the women suffered serious, non-life threatening injuries. The second woman, who was holding the baby at the time of the accident, was transported to the hospital along with the child. While the driver of the van was uninjured, a person in the store suffered minor injuries.

For many people, Halloween is a fun time of the year. It is filled with costumes, candy and fellowship. Unfortunately, one family will likely associate the holiday with sorrow after one of the state’s car accidents on the holiday weekend resulted in a fatality. Maryland police expect impairment may have been an issue in the accident.

At approximately 2 a.m. the morning after Halloween, a sedan containing four people — including three teenagers — was sitting on the side of the road. Police say that a vehicle driven by a 24-year-old woman drove onto the shoulder, striking the sedan. One of the sedan’s occupants, a 17-year-old male, died at the scene.

The other three occupants as well as the driver of the second vehicle were transported to the hospital for treatment. The extent of their injuries and current conditions are unclear at this time. Although police believe the woman showed symptoms of impairment, she has not been charged in connection with the accident. However, the incident likely remains under investigation and charges may be pending.

Firefighters and other first responders see many things in the line of duty. In fact, many are likely accustomed to encountering tragic car accidents. However, some are describing a recent accident in Maryland as one of the most horrific ones to have taken place due to the number of fatalities.

The accident occurred just before 10 p.m. one night in mid-October. A car containing three adults and two children stopped at a red light. Police say that a second car containing three occupants crashed into the back of the first car. Four people in the car were killed, including a 35-year-old woman, a 32-year-old woman, a 13-year-old and a 1-year-old.

Additionally, a 21-year-old female in the second car was killed. While the accident is still being investigated and no charges have been filed at this time, police suspect that speed may have been a contributing factor. The two deceased women in the first car had eight child between them, ranging in age from six weeks to 15. Family members are now trying to determine who will care for the children.

Most people are aware of their mortality. However, most relatively young people who do not engage in risky behaviors likely do not expect that their death is imminent. Unfortunately, car accidents in Maryland can quickly take or drastically change the life of an individual who was completely unable to prevent the accident. A recent Maryland accident caused one fatality and resulted in injuries to two others.

The accident happened just before 3:30 p.m. on an afternoon in late September. Police say that a 73-year-old woman was traveling south on a Maryland road when she was unable to maintain her lane as she went around a curve. As a result, she reportedly crossed the centerline, striking an oncoming vehicle head on.

The second vehicle was driven by a 29-year-old man. Although he was transported to a hospital for treatment, he later died from the injuries he suffered in the accident. The driver of the first vehicle and her passenger were treated for injuries but are expected to survive.

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.

With the number of public service announcements and other efforts made to educate the public about the dangers of consuming alcohol and getting behind the wheel of a car, it is nearly impossible for a driver to be unaware of the dangers. However, drunk driving car accidents still happen. One such accident in Anne Arundel, allegedly caused by a drunk driver, has put two bicyclists in the hospital.

The accident occurred in the afternoon of a day in late June. Police claim that a driver crossed over into a paved trail and drove there for an undetermined distance. She allegedly then struck two bicyclists, a 23-year-old woman and a 27-year-old man, sending them both to the hospital. The driver of the motor vehicle was uninjured.

The male victim has since been released, but the female victim remains hospitalized. She is listed in stable condition. Police have said that the driver who reportedly struck the cyclist had a blood alcohol content of almost double the legal limit. Charges are pending against the driver, and the accident remains under investigation.
