Pasadena Man Killed in Anne Arundel County Crash

By Alpert Schreyer on July 21, 2014

A 22-year-old Pasadena man was killed and two others sustained serious injuries in a Maryland single-vehicle accident. According to a WBAL-TV news report, the fatal car crash occurred on Route 10 near the Outer Loop of the Beltway near Glen Burnie. Officials say the 22-year-old driver may have been speeding when he failed to negotiate a curve, spun off the roadway and struck a tree. He was transported to a trauma center in Baltimore where he was pronounced dead. A 20-year-old man in the vehicle sustained serious injuries and was listed in stable condition and a 21-year-old passenger was listed in critical condition. Officials believe that excessive speed was the main factor in the crash.

Speed is one of the most common causes of fatal car accidents. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), speeding contributed to 31 percent of all fatal crashes in the year 2009 resulting in 10,591 deaths. Speed is particularly dangerous for young drivers. In the year 2009, 39 percent of the 15- to 20-year-old drivers and 37 percent of the 21- to 24-year-old drivers who were involved in fatal crashes were reportedly speeding.

During that same year, there were 547 traffic fatalities in Maryland of which 184 were speed-related. Whenever driving in Maryland, make sure you not only obey the speed limit, but also adjust your speed relative to the roadway conditions. It is advisable to slow down when the roadway is wet or icy. You should also reduce your speed when approaching a curve, when traffic is congested and when there is limited visibility.

If you have been injured by a speeding driver, you may be able to pursue financial compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and other related damages by filing a personal injury claim against the at-fault motorist. In such cases, it must be proven that the driver was speeding and that speed contributed to the accident.  The experienced Maryland wrongful death attorneys at Alpert Schreyer, LLC will help protect victims’ rights and ensure that they receive fair and just compensation for their losses.
