Accident Involving Maryland State Trooper Proves Fatal

By Alpert Schreyer on November 12, 2013

Maryland Pedestrian AccidentTwo teenagers were struck by a Maryland State Trooper, one of them fatally, as they tried to cross Route 113 in Berlin. A 16-year-old boy was killed and his older brother, 17, was seriously injured and had to have his leg amputated, according to a WBOC News report. The driver was a 21-year-old Maryland State Trooper. State police are investigating the cause of the crash. The department has not determined if speed was a factor. Officials say the trooper did take “evasive action,” but that it was not enough to avoid the fatal collision.

Neighbors said that the intersection by Route 113 and Bay Street is a dangerous one where several accidents have occurred during the last 20 years. One resident said she herself has witnessed four deadly accidents right on that section of the highway. She said people dart across the highway and drivers go against the red light. Police are still investigating the incident.

After any pedestrian accident, a number of questions must be asked in order to arrive at the truth. Who caused the accident? Were the pedestrians crossing the street at a safe location, such as a traffic light or a crosswalk? Who had the right-of-way? How fast was the motorist going? Was the roadway dangerous or improperly designed?

In such cases, injured victims and families of deceased victims would be well advised to contact an experienced Maryland personal injury lawyer who will stay on top of the official investigation and ensure that their legal rights are protected. Permanently injured victims can seek additional compensation for losses such as disabilities and lost future income. Families of deceased victims can seek compensation by filing a wrongful death claim as well.
