2 injured in serious collision on Capital Beltway

Crashes happen for all kinds of reasons, from drivers who get behind the wheel drunk to those who decide that speeding is a good idea. Whether a crash is caused by distracted driving or another kind of negligence, filing a lawsuit against the dangerous driver is always an option that you have.

In this case out of Washington, D.C., you can see the importance of driving safely. Two people were hurt in a crash that took place on the inner loop of the Capital Beltway on Sunday, Oct. 23. According to the news report from the day after the accident, the crash took place at around 8:00 a.m., after a Maryland State Police trooper parked on the shoulder of the highway to monitor traffic.

Shortly after pulling off the road, the police vehicle was struck by another driver in a Dodge Dart. The officer was trapped in his vehicle and had to be rescued by fire personnel who came to provide emergency assistance. He was taken to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center by air due to the extent of his injuries.

The other driver was also injured in the collision. He was taken to the local Prince George's hospital by ambulance. Currently, the police are looking into filing charges against the driver of the Dart, and an investigation into the cause of the accident is pending. The police have not said if alcohol played a role in the accident, but they did release information that the officer was treated and released from the hospital following the crash.
