How many motorcyclists die in accidents each year?

With spring just around the corner, many residents in Maryland may be eager to get back to some activities they do not engage in during the winter months. For many people, riding a motorcycle may well be one of those activities. Bikers have good reason to enjoy the thrill of riding on two wheels but they must also navigate serious risks when they share the road with cars, trucks and other larger vehicles.

6 dead in Maryland car crash

Seven people were riding in a minivan near Pointer Ridge Drive on Maryland's Route 301 in early February. Two were adults and five were children ages 5 to 15. Six of the people in the car were family members to one another. Due to an accident that caused the vehicle to go off the road into the woods and spin out in a snow-covered field, six of the occupants are now dead. Only the driver is still alive, and she sustained critical injuries in the crash that led to her initial hospitalization, although her current condition is unknown. 

FMCSA continues effort to curb trucker fatigue

Motor vehicle accidents in Maryland that involve large commercial vehicles like tractor-trailers can often involve some of the most horrific injuries in large part due to the immense size and weight of these big rigs. There may be a variety of factors that contribute to a trucking accident. Some of these include vehicle parts malfunction, reckless or negligent operation, impairment by drugs or alcohol and trucker fatigue.

At least 6 injured in multi-vehicle Maryland accident

Road construction can be both a blessing and a bane. It is necessary to keep the roads in good condition and to correct hazards that could lead to accidents or vehicle damage. At the same time, construction can contribute to hazardous conditions that can lead to accidents with the potential to injure drivers, passengers, and pedestrians, as well as construction workers themselves. Road construction played a part in a disastrous multi-vehicle accident that injured at least six people on Interstate 70 in Washington County, Maryland, late last Friday morning.

Is vehicle technology making us safer?

If you have shopped for a new vehicle in Maryland in the last couple of years, you might have seen vehicles that feature interesting new safety technologies. You might even have taken one of these vehicles for a test drive. The idea that technology can help people drive more safely and avoid accidents is certainly enticing. However, it is important for people to be educated about the true capabilities of these systems.

Fiery crash leads to manslaughter charges for Maryland man

Dashcam footage shows the scene of a horrific accident that happened in the Tribeca area of Manhattan in New York City, resulting in damage to multiple vehicles, several injuries, a life lost and a Maryland man in jail facing criminal charges. 

Maryland sees increase in DUI deaths

When it comes to deaths caused by drunk drivers, even one is too many given that these incidents are completely preventable if only people would make the responsible choice to not drive after consuming alcohol. Unfortunately, that just does not seem like something that some drivers are willing to do.

Are hands-free cellular devices safe?

It is illegal to use a hand-held cellphone while driving in Maryland and in many other states across the country. In an attempt to comply with the law, you may have turned to using a hands-free cellular device while behind the wheel. These devices are marketed as being a safe alternative to traditional hand-held cellphones, as they eliminate the manual and visual distractions caused by the hand-held types. A study released by AAA, however, shows that hands-free cellphones may not be as safe as some people may think.

Collision sends one vehicle into group of students

When people in Maryland send their children off to catch the school bus in the morning, they expect that the kids will arrive safely at school and then safely back at home later that day. If a problem would ever occur, parents would most likely assume that it would happen once their children were on the bus, not while they were standing on a street corner waiting for the bus. However, an accident can happen anytime and anywhere, including on a street corner. An example of this can be seen in an incident that happened recently in Aspen Hill.

One dead in three-vehicle crash on freeway

Most people in Maryland have at some time or another passed by a recent accident on the freeway or another road. Fortunately, many cases like this seem to involve only damage to vehicles and no immediate or evident harm to the people in them. However, this does not mean that great care is not still important when dealing with these crashes.
