Maryland car accident kills two on an early Friday morning

Two Maryland residents died in a violent two-car collision very early Friday morning in Hyattsville. The accident occurred at about 6 a.m. when a Toyota Camry driven by 38-year-old man was turning right when it was struck by an Acura. Police say the Acura was traveling south when it lost control and crossed into the northbound lanes, striking the Camry on the front driver's side.

A witness to the accident reported that the Camry waited until the traffic light turned green before turning through the intersection. The Acura on the other hand was travelling 75 to 80 miles per hour according to the witness. The passenger of the Camry, a 33-year-old woman, was taken to a local hospital where she was later pronounced dead. The driver of the Camry died at the scene. The man driving the speeding Acura was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

In the aftermath of a tragic car accident where a loved one dies, family members are often lost and confused and do not know where to go for help. Families should seek legal counsel from an experienced Maryland personal injury attorney who can inform them of their legal rights and help them determine whether they should pursue a wrongful death claim.

Victims' families have the right to pursue damages to cover expenses related to the death of their loved one and the injuries they suffered. An attorney will fight for the family during trying times for their rights and will negotiate any possible settlement to proper compensation.
