Reports indicate that the aggressive driving and speeding of a Maryland driver led to a three car Pasadena MD crash that ended the life of a 66-year-old man on the evening of November 28. The incident occurred on westbound Route 100 when the 25-year-old driver of a BMW who was waiting in the left turn lane at Quarterfield Road suddenly and quickly exited the turn lane back onto the main road of Route 100, ramming into the back of a Ford pickup truck, according to ABC 2 News. From there, the BMW then hit the back of the 66-year-old driver’s Nissan Sentra, sending it off the road where it overturned.
The Sentra driver was taken to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, but later died from his injuries. The 25-year-old BMW driver and the driver of the Ford pickup were not injured. Police are currently investigating the accident, but have reported that the driver’s speed and aggressive driving were the main causes of the accident.
The combination of aggressive, reckless driving tactics and high speed can easily lead to severe auto accidents. Higher speeds lead to a greater degree of impact and force exerted on the human body, and sudden accidents do not allow a victim to brace him- or herself for a crash. Even with the use of seat belts and airbags, victims can suffer broken bones, whiplash, traumatic brain injury, and lacerations.
Severe accidents, such as rollovers, head-on collisions, and fire, create a higher probability that a victim will receive brain damage, organ damage, burns, and other serious injuries that can result in death.
