Capital Beltway Truck Collision Leads to Death of Prince George’s County Man

By Alpert Schreyer on November 5, 2012

A 44-year-old man from Prince George’s County died in an auto accident on the morning of October 31 on the Outer Loop of the Capital Beltway. According to WUSA9, the accident involved the man’s Toyota Corolla being struck by another car, causing it to stop in the road and then be rear-ended by a semi truck.

While police have not revealed the direct cause of the accident, they have revealed that the deceased man’s vehicle was initially rear-ended by the other driver. The other two drivers involved in this accident were not injured and all three were believed to have been wearing seatbelts at the time of the collision. Speed may have been a factor in this deadly crash, but it has not yet been determined. Investigation and cleanup of the accident caused I-495 to be closed for five hours.

Tractor trailer collisions in Maryland frequently turn deadly due to the nature of the accident. Smaller passenger vehicles do not weigh nearly as much as semi trucks, causing them to take the majority of the damage of an accident. Often, even the safest vehicles cannot stand up to the speed and force of a tractor trailer in a collision.

While there are many causes behind truck crashes, big rig drivers are often the reason why they happen. Should a driver neglect his or her duties and restrictions under state and federal law, all other drivers on the road may be put in serious danger.
