One of the last things someone wants to learn is that a family member has
died in a car accident. Unfortunately, these catastrophes do happen and
families are undoubtedly left devastated. Tragically, a fatal
auto accident in Maryland has claimed the life of an 88-year-old woman and injured others.
The three-car accident happened on a recent Saturday morning. Authorities
responded to the scene and conducted an initial investigation into the
collision that happened near an interstate exit ramp. According to that
investigation, police believe that the accident unfolded like a chain
reaction that began when a sedan was struck by a pickup truck, which was
then struck by a another car.
A passenger in the sedan died from the injuries she sustained in the accident.
Others who were involved in the collision suffered injuries that have
not been specified. Authorities are still investigating the crash and
no other information has been released.
An auto accident can leave its victims suffering from injuries or leave
families of victims suffering from their losses. In this particular case,
no details concerning liability have been released, so it is possible
that the family members of the deceased woman may have the right to file
a wrongful death claim in a Maryland civil court against the driver of
the pickup truck or the driver of the other car for the losses associated
with the death of their loved one. In addition, the injured parties may
also have be eligible to file personal injury claims against the negligent
party or parties and, if successful, claims may result in compensation
