Pasadena Car Crash Critically Injures Two

By Alpert Schreyer on May 6, 2014

Two people were critically injured in an Anne Arundel County, Maryland car accident in which speed and alcohol may have been contributing factors. According to a WBAL-TV news report, the crash occurred near Catherine and Harlem avenues in Pasadena. Officials say a Porsche Cayenne was traveling at more than 70 mph when it struck the curb on a curve, left the roadway, and crashed into a large tree. The collision was so severe that the engine separated from the vehicle.

The driver and passenger were trapped in the Porsche until rescue personnel extricated them. The 24-year-old driver from Fredericksburg, Virginia, and the 23-year-old passenger from Pasadena have been listed in critical condition. Officials are looking into whether speed and alcohol contributed to the crash, but the curve where the crash took place is known to be dangerous with a history of similar crashes.

Speed is a critical factor in a number of Maryland crashes. When exceeding the speed limit, there is less time to react to changing roadway conditions and it is more challenging to maneuver the vehicle. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there were 710,289 crashes in Maryland between the years 1998 and 2004, of which 139,983 were considered speed-related. That means that nearly 20 percent of all Maryland car crashes that resulted in injury or property damage were speed-related.

The process of pursuing support for a crash can become complicated when the at-fault driver is the injured victim or when the victim is a passenger in the at-fault driver’s vehicle. Anyone facing these types of complex liability issues would be well advised to seek legal guidance. Auto insurance exists to provide support for losses suffered in an accident. Therefore, no one who has suffered a serious injury in a Maryland crash should pay out-of-pocket for his or her losses without first finding out if help and support are available. An experienced Bowie, Maryland car accident attorney can help injured victims and their families understand their legal rights and options.
