Bicyclists Injured in Davidsonville Hit-and-Run Collision

By Alpert Schreyer on March 5, 2014

Two bicyclists were injured in a Maryland car accident involving a suspected hit-and-run driver. According to a Southern Maryland News Net report, the bicycle accident occurred at Central Avenue and Patuxent River Road in Davidsonville. Officials say a light-colored SUV struck one of the bicyclists and failed to remain at the scene. The second bicyclist crashed into the wreckage and the first bicyclist was struck by a 2005 Chevy Impala while lying in the roadway.

The 62-year-old woman from Arlington on the first bicycle has been listed in critical but stable condition. The 52-year-old woman from University Park on the second bicycle was transported to a nearby hospital and released. Officials say the driver of the SUV failed to yield to the bicyclists and failed to remain at the scene. They are searching for a male driver with a grey mustache and dark glasses who drives a white or silver Honda SUV.

According to the report, it is possible that the driver of the SUV could not see the bicyclists because of sun glare. Many drivers in such cases are able to avoid a serious traffic citation or criminal penalty by explaining to the authorities how the crash occurred. However, it is illegal to leave the scene of an accident when someone has been injured or killed. Under Maryland Code Section 20-102, “The driver of each vehicle involved in an accident that results in bodily injury to another person immediately shall stop the vehicle as close as possible to the scene of the accident.”

Drivers who are successfully tracked down and arrested for leaving the scene of a crash in Maryland may face criminal charges. In addition, these individuals can also be held civilly liable for injuries and damages caused to the victim. In hit-and-run cases where the suspect is not apprehended, victims may be able to seek compensation for damages through the uninsured/underinsured motorist clause of his or her auto insurance policy. An experienced Maryland personal injury lawyer will be able to advise injured victims regarding their legal rights and options.
