Out-of-Control Car Causes Injuries in Gambrills

By Alpert Schreyer on July 18, 2013

Three people were injured in a Maryland car accident, which officials believe involved an out-of-control 1999 Honda Accord. According to a WUSA9 news report, the car crash occurred on Route 450 near Hallmark Drive in Gambrills.

Officials say the Honda was traveling east when it veered out of control, crossed the double yellow centerline, and struck a Mazda. The 34-year-old driver of the Accord has been listed in critical condition and two 17-year-olds who were in the Mazda sustained minor injuries. Investigators are still looking into the cause of the crash, but speed may have been a factor.

According to the Maryland Department of Transportation, there were 614 fatal crashes in Maryland in the 2007. Of those accidents, 216 were speed-related. Under Maryland Code 21-801, “A person may not drive a vehicle on a highway at a speed that, with regard to the actual and potential dangers existing, is more than that which is reasonable and prudent under the conditions.” This means that motorists must not only obey the speed limit, but also adjust their speed to roadway, traffic, and weather conditions.

If you have been involved in a Maryland car crash, even if you are partially responsible for the crash, it is important that you:

  • Remain at the scene of the crash and contact the authorities.
  • Never admit responsibility for the collision.
  • Collect contact information from the drivers involved and from anyone who may have witnessed the crash.
  • Take photos of the crash site, the damaged vehicles, and your injuries.
  • Write down everything you remember about the crash before you forget important details.
  • Seek out immediate medical attention.
  • Reach out to an experienced Maryland personal injury lawyer before discussing your case with an insurance provider.
