Two Killed in Huntingtown Motorcycle Accident

By Alpert Schreyer on October 17, 2013

Two people were killed in a Huntingtown motorcycle accident after the driver of a car attempted to make a left turn in front of a motorcycle. According to a report on Southern Maryland News.net, the fatal accident occurred on Plum Point Road at the intersection of Twin Oak Lane. Officials say the driver of a Ford Escape was traveling east on Plum Point when she tried to enter a private drive by turning left.

The Harley-Davidson motorcycle was westbound on the roadway. The Ford struck the motorcycle head-on. Both the driver of the motorcycle and his passenger were ejected and died from their injuries. The driver of the Ford suffered minor injuries. Police say driver inattention and failure to yield the right-of-way contributed to this collision. Calvert County Sheriff’s officials are still investigating the collision.

According to Maryland Statutes Section 21-402: “If the driver of a vehicle intends to turn to the left in an intersection or into an alley or a private road or driveway, the driver shall yield the right-of-way to any other vehicle that is approaching from the opposite direction and is in the intersection or so near to it as to be an immediate danger.” Failure to yield the right-of-way is one of the most common causes of fatal motorcycle accidents.

In cases where negligence is a factor, families of deceased crash victims can file a wrongful death claim seeking compensation for damages such as medical expenses, funeral costs, lost future income, and pain and suffering. An experienced Maryland motorcycle accident lawyer will be able advise injured victims and families of deceased victims in such cases regarding their legal rights and options.   We can help.  Call us today at 844-632-7274 to schedule a no cost, no obligation consultation with one of Alpert Schreyer, LLC’s top rated personal injury lawyers.
