Maryland Wrongway Driver Causes Fatal Crash on I-70

By Alpert Schreyer on June 19, 2012

A wrong-way driver on Interstate 70 in Howard County caused a head-on collision that killed a 28-year-old man and left others with injuries, according to a recent report from ABC 2 News.

The accident occurred at about 1:00 a.m. on westbound I-70 near West Friendship, Maryland. According to investigators, the wrong-way driver was operating a pickup truck when he got on the westbound side of the freeway, heading east. He had one passenger, a young woman.

Their vehicle was traveling down the left-hand lane in the wrong direction when it crashed head-on into a car driven by a 28-year-old man. The young man lost his life at the scene of the accident. The occupants of the pickup truck refused to be treated for their injuries, which do not appear to have been life-threatening.

Investigators believe that both alcohol and excessive speeding played a role in causing the crash. They say that the driver of the pickup truck appeared to have gotten disoriented while trying to travel from a friend’s house in Reisterstown to his home in Catonsville, and to have gotten onto the wrong side of the highway as a result. Police are considering both criminal and traffic charges against the pickup’s driver.

Head-on collisions are just one type of accident that can cause serious injury or death.
