Single-Vehicle Crash Kills Maryland Woman

By Alpert Schreyer on December 30, 2011

A single vehicle crash on southbound Interstate 81 on December 23 ended in the death of a 36-year-old female driver from Pasadena, Maryland. The accident occurred around 7 p.m. when the driver allegedly attempted to pass other drivers on the interstate in her silver 2002 Chevy Impala, according to

Reports indicate that, as she attempted to pass other vehicles, she lost control of her vehicle, drove onto the left shoulder of the highway, then entered the grassy median. Hitting the median sent her car into the air and overturned it, ejecting the driver from her car and causing fatal injuries.

While police are currently investigating the accident and the exact reasons why the driver in this accident lost control of her car, it may have been caused by a number of factors, such as speed and hazardous road conditions. Hazardous roadways have the possibility of causing devastating crashes due to their unpredictable and uncontrollable nature for the drivers involved.

During the winter months, Maryland roadways can be subjected to dangerous snow and ice accumulation that can go unnoticed by both drivers and safety maintenance workers. Wet and icy roads can quickly cause a driver to lose control of his or her vehicle while travelling at speeds unsafe for the conditions. In addition, when the crash becomes a vehicle rollover accident such as this one, those affected often have much less of a chance to survive due to the severe and traumatic injuries that can occur.

When a road is not properly maintained, the potential for an accident becomes much greater for all travelling in the area.
