Head-on collision in Maryland kills one, injures another

Negligent driving in Maryland can take many forms, including drowsy driving and drunk driving. Unfortunately, all it takes is one wrong decision for a fatal accident to occur.

A head-on auto accident in Prince George's County, Maryland, led to the death of one man and seriously injured another. According to police, the accident occurred when a Cadillac heading due south drifted over into the northbound lane of traffic. It was at this point that the Cadillac collided with a BMW. The driver of the Cadillac was hospitalized with serious injuries. Sadly, the driver of the BMW succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead at the hospital. The accident occurred shortly after 2:30 in the morning on May 5. The incident is still under investigation by the police.

Head-on car crashes can be some of the most terrifying situations drivers may ever have to face. Unfortunately, these types of car accidents may not just lead to extensive property damages. They could inflict serious injuries. And, sadly, they can sometimes lead to the death of the people involved.

When a loved one dies in a car crash, their family members may experience more than just emotional distress. They could also face financial distress in the form of medical expenses incurred before the death, funeral costs and in some situations pain and suffering. When this happens, they may consider seeking compensation through a wrongful death lawsuit. Unfortunately, no amount of money will bring a loved one back to life. But it could at least go a long way in ensuring that the victim's loved ones will have the financial resources they need to begin the sometimes-long recovery process.
