Del. Donald H. Dwyer, Jr. One of Many Injured in Pasadena, Magothy River Boating Accident

By Alpert Schreyer on August 23, 2012

Two boats collided around 7 p.m. on Wednesday, August 22nd while traveling on the Magothy River in Pasadena, MD. According to The Baltimore Sun, Del. Donald H. Dwyer, Jr. is one of six people, including four children, who suffered serious injuries. It’s been reported that Dwyer is in serious, but stable, condition and none of the others injured are experiencing life-threatening injuries.

Although an investigation into the Maryland boating crash is still pending, no initial evidence suggests that alcohol or speeding contributed to the collision. An Anne Arundel Fire Department spokesman stated that after the two motorboats struck one another, three nearby boats came to their aid and pulled those injured out of the water. Most of the accident victims were taken by the Good Samaritans to the Gibson Island area where emergency responders arrived after being called to the scene from a witness on shore.

It shouldn’t take boat collisions like this one to remind us to stay safe while out on the water. Unfortunately, even the most cautious person operating a boat can be injured in an accident caused by another person’s negligence or oversight. The Maryland Department of Natural Resources’ 2011 recreational boating accident statistics outline that the causes, in order of frequency, of reported boat crashes in the state include passenger/water skier error, operator error, wake, reckless and/or negligent operation, no proper lookout, excessive speed, equipment failure, hazardous waters, and alcohol.

Injuries suffered in a boat crash can take months, if not years, to recover from. To help offset medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages, injury victims can seek compensation from negligent parties with the help of an experienced lawyer.
