The approaching holidays mean that many more people will travel for varying reasons. This unfortunately also means that car accidents will be on the rise in some areas. When they prove fatal, they can be devastating to the surviving loved ones of the victim, especially at a time of year that is meant to be joyous. This is what one Maryland family is likely experiencing after the death of one man due to an accident that, according to law enforcement, may have been due to a drunk driver.
This time of year seems to pass quickly, and with Halloween over and Thanksgiving fast approaching, it is easy to see that the winter holidays will arrive in the blink of an eye. While some families hold steadfast in tradition, others may look forward to trying something new this year. With such to look forward to, it's easy to forget that a car accident can happen out of nowhere, as several unfortunate Maryland families have learned.
The crisp autumn air has finally blown into Maryland, and people are out and about. There is lots to see and do in the fall, and many people are busy preparing for company, decorating for upcoming holidays or getting some snacks together for the big game. Many people rely on public transportation, such as a bus, to get to and from each destination. While certainly a convenient way to travel, a person has no guarantee of avoiding serious injury.
Several police departments from Maryland and surrounding states have kicked off a new campaign to urge drivers to always wear seat belts. In addition to being required by law, wearing a seat belt can save lives. A recent car accident involving several vehicles serves as a grim reminder to all motorists of the need .
Autumn has officially arrived, and Maryland residents are ready. Autumn offers a variety of events for residents and visitors alike, and people are ready for hayrides, street fairs and hunting seasons to begin. Venturing out into the community might entail driving, and surely, most drivers do their best to follow the laws and drive safely to avoid a car accident.
As the last few days of summer shine on Maryland, residents and visitors are eagerly awaiting the first signs of autumn. Driving through The Old Line State can be a picturesque experience, as motorists pass fall foliage, rivers, wildlife and other natural gems. Unfortunately, not every trip down a Maryland road is an enjoyable experience, and if a car accident occurs, the trip may become a living nightmare.
Maryland was hit with its first snowfall of the year recently, and it's a good time to remind drivers of best practices for winter safety.
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.
Leaving the scene of an accident, no matter how minor, is a serious offense. An elderly man is fighting for his life after being injured in a collision between a pickup truck and his horse and buggy. In Maryland, a charge for hit\-and\-run accident with serious bodily injury is considered a felony and holds severe consequences.
Many factors can contribute to a fender bender. Driver negligence, speeding, distractions or driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs can make the operation of a vehicle dangerous. Driving while under the influence can lead to a car accident that can cost the driver his or her life and possibly the lives of others. Intoxicated or otherwise incapacitated drivers are generally not aware of their surroundings and reflexes can become impaired. Recently, a Maryland woman has learned her fate after an incident in 2016 left one man dead.
