Motor vehicle accidents a tragic beginning to 2019

A recent tragic accident in Marylnd took the lives of three young children in a crash on Indian Head Highway in Oxon Hill. The children were siblings, 5-year-old twins and a 1-year-old baby. The crash was caused by a hit-and-run driver who may have been driving under the influence at the time of the crash. The location of the accident is known to be a dangerous intersection where there have been multiple motor vehicle accidents in recent years.

The car that the children were traveling in was either stopped or had slowed for a light near Wilson Bridge Road. The other vehicle, a pickup truck, rear-ended the car and the impact caused a chain reaction involving the car carrying the children and the two cars in front of it. The impact caused the pickup to land on top of the rear passenger portion of the car where the children were seated.

The intersection where the accident happened is considered a speed trap. It has become a popular area for drag racing. Speed cameras were installed last fall following the death of a young woman at the same intersection. According to investigators, the pickup truck was moving faster than the victim's cars and there were no skid marks at the scene. The accident remains under investigation.

There are no words to describe the grief that a family feels when a child dies as a result of motor vehicle accidents in Maryland. There is no action, no amount of money, that can bring the child or children back. Consulting with a personal injury attorney may provide some relief through a civil lawsuit against the party deemed responsible. A successfully litigated claim can provide compensation for medical costs, final costs and other verifiable losses.
