Maryland trucking accidents: Woman killed in recent crash

A woman in Maryland recently died after her vehicle was rear-ended by a flatbed truck. Sadly, trucking accidents with results like this are all too common. Following such an event, surviving family members may be entitled to seek compensation for their losses through legal means.

According to a recent news report, on Tuesday, April 2, at roughly 7 a.m., the victim -- a staff sergeant with the National Guard -- was waiting to turn left at the intersection of Route 30 and Rue Saint Lo Drive when the truck struck the back end of her sedan. The force of impact pushed her vehicle into oncoming traffic, and her car was struck by a tractor-trailer. The 30-year-old woman was transported to an area hospital for treatment, but, sadly, she succumbed to her injuries a few hours later.

Maryland police are still in the process of investigating this incident. They have yet to release a statement concerning the official cause of this crash. It is unclear if the driver responsible is going to face criminal charges for his or her role in the victim's death.

In tribute to this fallen soldier, the governor has ordered flags be flown at half-staff until she is officially laid to rest. This honor may bring some comfort to the victim's loved ones, but it will not help them cope with the financial and emotional losses they are undoubtedly facing right now -- losses commonly experienced after fatal trucking accidents. Through filing and successfully negotiating or litigating civil claims against the responsible party, they may achieve the relief they need to get through this difficult time.
