Snow Storm Causes at Least 15 Accidents in Maryland

By Alpert Schreyer on December 11, 2013

Maryland Auto AccidentA snowstorm, described as “fast and furious,” dumped nearly seven inches of snow on Hagerstown and left at least 15 accidents in its wake on Interstate 81. According to a report in the Herald Mail, one of the accidents occurred when a southbound tractor-trailer went out of control and hit a light pole along the interstate causing the pole to fall onto the road.

There was another wreck involving two big rigs. In addition, there were collisions on the northbound side involving cars and tractor-trailers. In total, more than 20 vehicles were involved in crashes on the interstate. State police said none of the accidents resulted in serious injuries.

Driving in the snow can be extremely treacherous. If you are faced with a heavy snow storm, the best approach to take is not to drive at all. If you must drive, then, there are several steps you can take to prevent serious accidents. First, make sure you are driving at an appropriate speed. Do not drive too fast or too slow. Leave adequate room between the vehicles so you have time to stop, if needed. Your focus needs to be on the road. Do not drive distracted, fatigued, or under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.

Make sure your car is in good shape before you head out into a winter storm. Keep emergency supplies including flashlights, blankets, additional food, and water so that you are taken care of if you are stranded. If you or a loved one has been injured in a Maryland car accident, please contact an experienced personal injury lawyer to obtain more information about pursuing your legal rights.
