Drunk driving accident claims life of Maryland tow truck driver

Tragically, a Maryland man was recently killed in a car crash. According to official reports in the ongoing investigation, his death appears to have been the result of a drunk driving accident. The 48-year-old tow truck driver was struck when a vehicle operated by a Baltimore resident collided with him on an Anne Arundel County roadway.

The Generations Auto Safetow tow truck operator was standing behind his vehicle preparing to tow a disabled automobile on Wednesday, May 31. Per police reports, a car driven by a 31-year-old ran into both the man and his truck from behind. The victim was taken to the Shock Trauma Center at the University of Maryland for treatment of his severe injuries, of which he ultimately died.

The driver who struck the man was taken to a different hospital for treatment of his minor injuries. Authorities say this man was operating his vehicle while under the influence of alcohol. Police say that, due to his being drunk, he failed to slow down in time to avoid the fatal collision.

As of this writing, the investigation by the Traffic Safety Section of the Anne Arundel County Police Department is ongoing. Charges against the driver are pending an official review. Apart from any criminal charges the allegedly drunk driver may face is the possibility of a civil wrongful death lawsuit brought by the deceased victim's family, should they choose to pursue that option. Anyone in Maryland who has lost a loved one or been seriously injured in a drunk driving accident would likewise have the same right to seek the counsel of a personal injury attorney with experience in handling claims arising out of serious car accidents.
