New Year’s Day SUV Accident in Maryland Kills 2

By Alpert Schreyer on January 5, 2012

Myfoxdc.com reports that Montgomery County police are still investigating a New Year’s Day crash that killed a 20-year-old and an 18-year-old and left three others injured. The Maryland car accident occurred on the 4800 block of Jones Bridge Road in Bethesda. Friends of the victims say the group had just left a New Year’s Eve party in White Oak where they were drinking, and feel alcohol is to blame for the tragic crash. However, despite law enforcement finding both full and empty alcoholic containers in the victims’ Chevy Trailblazer, they have not officially ruled a cause for the collision. Police officials determined the three surviving passengers were wearing seat belts and are all expected to be okay. Friends of the victims state that this very unfortunate accident serves as a wakeup call for others to not drink and drive.

As of 2008, there were a total of 138 fatal accidents, resulting in 152 people being killed, in Maryland where at least one driver had a BAC (blood alcohol concentration) at or above the legal limit of .08%. Though Gazette.net reports that drunk driving arrests have declined since the beginning of the recent recession in November 2007, the number of DUI arrests in the state of Maryland was still quite high with a total number of 22,614 in 2010 and 16,763 through September of 2011. Drunk driving accidents can result in life-threatening injuries or fatalities to innocent motorists on the road, which is a very devastating fact considering they are 100% preventable.
