Regardless if you are driving in downtown Baltimore, an outlying area or the highway, you know that a motor vehicle accident could happen at any time. Recently, a four-car accident in Baltimore led to the death of one man and left a woman in critical condition. Baltimore police identified the man who died as a 26-year-old from Sanford Place.
The motor vehicle accident occurred at 11:32 a.m. in the Sandtown-Winchester neighborhood. According to police, an Acura hit a Mercury, killing the driver of the Mercury and injuring a woman in the passenger seat.
Additionally, a 2-year-old riding in the backseat of the Mercury was also taken to a local hospital for treatment of injuries. The two men in the Acura, as well as the driver of another Acura, were also taken to a hospital. The police added that seven passengers in a Dodge Durango were also transported to a hospital for treatment.
This story goes a long way in showing what can happen if one person causes an accident. In addition to the two cars that were primarily involved, two others were also damaged along the way. This led to injuries by people in all four vehicles.
Even if you are obeying every rule of the road, there is always the chance that another driver could make a mistake that leads to an accident. In this case, the end result was one death and several injuries. In the event of such an accident, the victims and their families may benefit from speaking with an experienced personal injury attorney who can help them learn more about seeking compensation.
