Tragic accident while man changes tire on Maryland interstate

When a car gets a flat tire on a busy highway, it creates an incredibly dangerous situation, regardless of the time of day. The driver can take all the safety precautions possible, putting on their flashers and pulling as far off the road as possible, but with vehicles flying by at speeds up to 80 miles per hour, tragic car accidents resulting in wrongful deaths happen all too frequently.

Driver not guilty of manslaughter but may face wrongful death suit

Negligent drivers may face criminal charges and wrongful death suits if they cause an accident that kills another. A Maryland SUV driver, that ran a red light and killed renowned jazzman Joe Byrd last spring, was acquitted of criminal negligent manslaughter Thursday. However, immediate family members of the decedent may bring a wrongful death suit against the SUV driver for financial injury surrounding the loss of their loved one. The driver was a 28-year-old from North Beach who was driving a 2003 GMC Yukon when he ran the light and hit Byrd's 2003 Volvo station wagon as it made a left turn.
