Multi-vehicle crash in Maryland kills one, injures others

The more vehicles that are involved in a car accident, the more complicated liability can be. This may be the case for a recent multi-vehicle crash that occurred in Maryland on Route 100 near Pasadena.

A multi-vehicle accident has lead to the death of one individual and has injured several others. The accident began when the driver of a cement truck did not stop with traffic and struck a vehicle from behind. This caused a chain reaction crash. All in all, the cement truck and five other vehicles were involved in the accident. Four motorists suffered minor injuries in the crash. However, the cement truck ultimately landed on top of one of the vehicles, leading to the death of the motorist inside. It appears that neither drugs nor alcohol played a role in the accident, which is still being investigated. Police are citing driver error on the part of the operator of the cement truck as the cause of the accident.

As this shows, multi-vehicle car accidents can be complex. It may be the case in a multi-car crash that the driver of one vehicle could be held liable by several other drivers involved in the crash. This may be true even if the driver of that vehicle did not directly hit some of the other vehicles. In addition, when an accident involves a truck or other commercial vehicle, both the driver and the truck company could face liability in the crash.

When a victim is injured or killed in a multi-vehicle crash that victim or their loved ones may have many questions regarding who can be held responsible for the damages they suffered. By consulting a personal injury attorney, these victims may be able to learn more about liability and how it affects their case.
