Designated Work Site Accident Leaves One Dead and One Critically Injured

By Alpert Schreyer on March 1, 2016

Maryland Car AccidentA designated work site accident involving a dump truck near the Virginia/Maryland state line recently caused the death of one man and left another man in critical condition in Baltimore.

The Worcester County Sheriff’s office reported that at about 1:20pm on Monday, February 22, 48 year-old Scott Tatterson of Pocomoke City and 23 year-old Wade Pusey of Seaford, Delaware had just gotten out of their county government dump truck south of Stockton at a designated work site on Greenbackville Road when the accident occurred.

A 2010 Kia caused the wreck when it exited the travel lane in an apparent attempt to drive around the work site.  Lt Ed Schreier said the driver of the Kia apparently swerved back to avoid an oncoming vehicle and struck the dump truck and both workers.

Tatterson was pronounced dead at the scene, while the other county worker, Pusey, was airlifted to Shock Trauma in Baltimore.  As of Wednesday the 24th, Pusey was reported to be in critical condition.  The identity of the driver of the Kia is being withheld at this point because the investigation is ongoing, but the driver was taken to Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury and was treated for injuries that were reportedly not life-threatening.

The accident is currently being investigated by the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office Crash Reconstruction Unit and as of Friday the 26th no charges have been filed against the driver of the Kia.

This accident serves as a reminder to use special care in road work areas.  When you’re travelling in the area of a designated work site, always expect workers to be present…even if you can’t see them.  An accident can happen in a split second.  If you find yourself in a car or truck accident, seek medical attention first.  If you believe the accident and your injuries are the fault of another driver, call the experienced personal injury attorneys at Alpert Schreyer, LLC for a free case evaluation.  We can help you get the compensation you deserve.
