Fatal Maryland Truck Crash Kills 1 on Governor’s Bridge Road

By Alpert Schreyer on February 16, 2012

A tragic intersection accident claimed the life of a Largo woman on the morning of February 9, according to the Bowie Patch. Police reports indicate the fatal Bowie truck accident occurred when a 28-year-old woman entered the intersection of Governor’s Bridge Road and Maryland Route 301 and her black Honda Accord collided with a flatbed tractor-trailer that was traveling northbound on the state route. The Largo woman was immediately taken to the Bowie Health Center for treatment, but was later pronounced dead. The driver of the tractor-trailer was not injured. The Maryland State Police Crash Team is continuing the investigation and asking any witnesses of the accident to call the Maryland State Police at (301) 568-8101.

Despite improvements in features like road design, safety laws and regulations, intersection safety is still a serious problem. According to information from the U.S. Institute of Traffic Safety Engineers, the number of fatal crashes at traffic signals is rising faster than any other type of fatal crash in the nation. In 2002, an estimated 3.2 million intersection-related crashes occurred, which represented 50 percent of all reported crashes. Though intersection accidents are extremely dangerous, when a motor vehicle collides with a large truck, regardless of the location of the accident, the passengers in the car are often the ones to suffer serious or life-threatening auto accident injuries due to the immense size of the commercial vehicle.

Any Maryland resident who has been involved in a truck accident deserves compensation if the collision was caused by the truck driver’s negligence.
