Maryland truck accident leaves woman in critical condition

Accidents involving larger vehicles like trucks tend to be more catastrophic than crashes between smaller vehicles. This is in part due to the size and weight of trucks, but other factors come into play as well, like longer reaction times and less maneuverability. While officials are still uncertain of what contributing factors led up to it, a truck accident recently occurred on Maryland Route 91 that left a woman in critical condition.

A preliminary investigation indicates that the 65-year-old woman was traveling east when she was sideswiped by a box truck traveling north. The box truck, driven by a 35-year-old man, apparently struck the car on the passenger side. Emergency personnel – including police and medical respondents – arrived at the scene of the crash at around 1:30 p.m. that Tuesday.

Traveling in the car with the woman was a minor child, who was transported to the hospital with injuries that were reportedly not life-threatening. The injuries suffered by the driver of the box truck were also not serious. The woman driving the car, however, did apparently suffer life-threatening injuries. She was transported to Sinai Hospital for treatment and remains in critical condition.

Investigation into the truck accident is ongoing. The injured woman, once able, may choose to seek the counsel of a Maryland personal injury attorney to explore grounds for pursuing a lawsuit against the truck driver in civil court. If sufficient fault or negligence can be proven, a successfully presented suit would mean the award of damages that could be used to help pay for the extensive medical costs the woman will likely end up facing.
