Maryland Highway Worker Killed in Fatal Truck Accident

The eighth highway worker fatality in the past five years was the first since 2006 and one of only a few that occurred outside of a construction zone. The accident took place in the very early hours of Thursday morning, last week. Ghassen Sabra was in the left lane of Route 50, in Anne Arundel County, presumably doing roadwork when he was struck from behind by a semi truck. The truck then left the scene, leaving Sabra crumpled on the road.

Maryland Signs Cell Phone Ban To Reduce Car Accidents

A new state law could affect millions of Maryland motorists. On Thursday, Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley signed a bill that bans the use of handheld phones while driving.

Maryland officials and advocates believe this new law will make Maryland roadways safer and will significantly reduce the number of car accidents in the state.

Maryland Company Works to Help Teen Drivers Avoid Car Accidents

One Baltimore Company is taking a proactive approach to educating Maryland teen drivers about potential road dangers and good driving habits that could avoid a car accident.

This event came at a perfect time as the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention recently reported that car accidents are now the leading cause of teenage death in the U.S. They estimate that more than one-third of teen fatalities are the result of car accidents.
