Dump truck accident in Washington, D.C. injures 2 children

A dump truck was involved in a motor vehicle accident before finally crashing into the side of a house in Southeast Washington, D.C. on a recent Tuesday. The dump truck first hit two vehicles, both containing passengers, then plowed into an Oxon Hill home. The truck accident left two children injured and resulted in significant property damage.

On the morning of Dec. 20, the truck was traveling on Owens Road. Apparently, there were warning signs instructing drivers to slow down due to ongoing construction. A Prince George's County Fire and EMS spokesperson stated that the front-end damage to the truck indicates the driver was traveling at a high rate of speed. The severely damaged home that was struck by the truck has since been condemned.

Two little boys, aged five and seven, were among those injured as a result of the accident. One apparently suffered unspecified injuries to his mouth. The driver is expected to face charges.

The trucker indicated that a white panel truck contributed to the crash. Witnesses claim they saw no such truck, and police are not looking for it at this point. Investigators will attempt to determine whether there were mechanical issues that could have contributed to the truck accident. Since evidence of negligence on the part of the truck driver appears substantial, the family may choose to pursue a personal injury lawsuit. In fact, anyone in Washington, D.C. who has been seriously injured due to truck driver negligence has the right to seek relief through the civil court system.
