Workers escape injury, PG Co. restaurant under repair after wreck

On any given day in Maryland, at any given time, a confluence of circumstances can swirl together and lead to an accident in the workplace that leaves someone injured. How all the elements come together may prove elusive, but that should not prompt someone who has been injured on the job to forego seeking the benefits they are due. Contacting an attorney can help advance the effort.

There is a work crew in Prince George's County that may be feeling somewhat lucky that none of their number got hurt after one recent accident. Police say a 91-year-old man crashed his car into the Seabrook restaurant on Lanham Severn Road recently. The crash occurred just at the start of the likely lunchtime rush on April 18.

A spokesman for the county police says the aged driver apparently had been at a bank across the street from the restaurant just before the wreck. As he left that business, he reportedly drove directly across the road and into Jerry's Seafood restaurant. Officials say there were no patrons in the restaurant at the time and fortunately all the employees were in the back. Had any of them been in the seating area, someone very likely could have been seriously hurt.

The only person who did suffer injuries, and they apparently were not life threatening, was the 91-year-old driver. He was taken to an area hospital for treatment.

The police say they don't know what circumstances led up to the accident. The restaurant apparently suffered significant enough damage that it required reconstruction. It was closed for several days.
