Pedestrian Killed in Silver Spring Crash

By Alpert Schreyer on November 13, 2014

A 77-year-old Silver Spring man was killed in a Montgomery County Maryland car accident when a green 1999 Lincoln Continental struck him. According to a WUSA 9 news report, the fatal pedestrian accident occurred on New Hampshire Avenue in Silver Spring. Officials say the Montvale Drive man was struck while crossing the north side of the road. He was transported to Suburban Hospital where he later succumbed to his injuries. It is unclear if the 64-year-old driver will be cited for the crash, but the investigation is ongoing.

It does not take much for a pedestrian accident to result in serious or fatal injuries. Even at relatively low speeds, pedestrians can suffer bone fractures, spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injuries.  According to the Maryland Department of Transportation, 112 pedestrians were killed in statewide car accidents in the year 2008. That accounts for 20 percent of all Maryland’s traffic fatalities.

After any pedestrian accident, a complete and thorough investigation is a must. If it is determined that the driver was distracted, impaired, fatigued, speeding or otherwise careless, he or she may be held accountable for the crash.

The family of a pedestrian, who is killed in a Maryland car accident, would be well advised to stay abreast of the ongoing investigation, keep records of their financial losses and research their legal rights and options. A wrongful death claim, for example, can result in financial support for funeral expenses, lost future wages, loss of companionship and many other related damages. An experienced Maryland pedestrian accident lawyer will be able to help victims and their families better understand their legal rights and options.
