Auto accident takes life of 15-year-old Delmar pedestrian

Residents of Prince George's County were saddened to learn of the death of a 15-year-old boy who was struck in an auto accident. The accident occurred October 3 at around 7:15 in the evening. According to police, it is not known at this time if Delmar boy was riding his skateboard or walking when he was hit by an SUV. The accident occurred on Providence Church Road, near Line Road. Also involved in the auto accident was the 31-year-old driver of the SUV, who was not injured.

According to police, the boy was wearing dark clothing and was hit from behind as he went along the southbound lane of the road. Emergency rescue personnel transported the boy to Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury. He was pronounced dead upon arrival.

Reports indicate that the road was closed for nearly four hours following the incident, during which time an investigation was made of the facts and circumstances surrounding the auto accident. No charges have as yet been filed against the driver of the SUV.

While the family of the 15-year-old boy will be left to grieve a life cut tragically short, they will also want to know exactly what happened. It is not always clear what occurred in the immediate aftermath of a fatal accident, particularly when the only witness is the driver that was involved in the collision.

When someone is injured or killed because of the negligent actions of another person, the injured party or the victims surviving family may be entitled to monetary damages as compensation for their loss. An attorney in Prince George's County may be able to provide answers to vital questions, move to preserve important evidence and press claims for remuneration against all negligent parties.
