Father and Son Airlifted to Hospital after Truck Rollover Crash in MD

By Alpert Schreyer on April 16, 2012

According to a report, a father and son were airlifted from the scene of a tractor-trailer crash that occurred sometime before 8:43 a.m. on the morning of April 12, 2012. Reports indicate that the tractor-trailer rig with the father and son driving team apparently veered off the interstate while traveling eastbound on Interstate 70 then proceeded to go off the ramp to Md. 65, crashing through a guardrail and continuing down a 50-foot embankment. A Maryland State Police trooper said both the tractor and trailer overturned at the bottom of the embankment and the truck’s fuel tanks were ripped off, ultimately causing a diesel fuel spill.

Two medevac helicopters were called to the scene of the MD rollover accident and both the father and son were flown to R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center for treatment. The extent of their injuries is unknown at this time. The father is reportedly in his 60s and his son is estimated to be in his late 20s. At least a dozen emergency vehicles were parked at the off ramp, and the ramp from northbound Md. 65 to eastbound I-70 was closed while crews worked to clean up the fuel spill. A Maryland State Police trooper said the cause of the accident is still under investigation.

Truck accidents are very dangerous and can be caused by any number of reasons; however, when a crash is caused by the negligence of another party, the injured victim has the legal right to pursue compensation from those responsible.
