We all know that driving on the road can be dangerous, especially if the vehicle is a motorcycle. Since motorcycles do not provide the same level of protection that a car can, motorcycle accidents can often result in serious injuries. However, there is some good news for Maryland motorcyclists. A recent study performed by the Trust for American's Health shows that Maryland, among other states such as California and New Jersey, has one of the lowest rates of fatalities per avoidable accidents in the country.
It is a well-known fact that driving can be dangerous, but few people get into their cars expecting to be seriously injured in a car accident. However, a large car accident in Easton, Maryland, has done just that to three individuals. Maryland police responded to the accident, which occurred on Route 33 at Leehaven Road, to find a sprawling accident scene involving four vehicles.
It is an unfortunate fact that some drivers will experience a car accident that leaves them with serious injuries. For some of these people, the accident will be caused by another driver's negligence. This appears to be the case for one Talbot County woman recently injured in an auto accident on Route 309 when another driver struck her car.
In the hopes of reducing the amount of motorcycle accidents in the state, the Maryland Highway Safety Office is promoting a motorcycle safety course that aims to inform motorcyclists of useful strategies to avoid accidents.
A recent car crash in Prince George's County involved a Maryland state delegate. The delegate, Joseph F. Vallario Jr. of Assembly District 27A, was driving northbound on a local road when a vehicle struck his car. According to police spokesmen, the accident occurred when a car on the southbound lane was rear-ended while waiting to make a turn. The impact pushed it into the northbound lane.
