Fatal and serious motor vehicle and truck accidents continue to occur in and around the Eastern Shore counties this year. Beginning in January, 2015, a Virginia family, including a pregnant woman and and 2 month old boy, were killed in a crash with a tractor trailer in Queen Anne's County. The family apparently was on their way to visit family in Baltimore when a tractor trailer collided with them in an intersection.
More recently in Caroline County, a person was killed and another driver injured when a Cadillac and a Ford bus collided while passing one another on Bethlehem Road near Preston, MD. Early investigation indicated that the Cadillac drifted over the center line into the path of the Ford state owned, bus, which was providing transportation for an adult day care facility. The bus was caused to overturn after being struck.
Two other citizens were killed near Kent Narrows Bridge in March, 2015, when a driver going the wrong way on the highway struck a car in the evening. A spy cam actually caught the accident as it occurred. The driver going the wrong way on Route 50 had a long history of prior charges from DUI to driving on the wrong side of the road and alcohol was deemed to be a probable factor in this particular accident.
Please, keep an eye out and drive as defensibly as possible as you never know what may be coming down the roadway. And if you need an Eastern Shore attorney you know you can count on this firm to aggressively investigate and pursue your claim for damages and injuries.
