Driver Dies in Maryland Truck Accident on I-95 When Truck Overturns
Posted on Jul 30, 2013
A truck driver from Baltimore died on Monday, July 1, when he lost control of the box truck he was driving along the interstate in nearby Harford County. Terrell Allbrook, a 21-year-old man from Baltimore, was traveling southbound along Interstate 95 in Harford County shortly before 8 a.m. when the accident occurred.
As Allbrook neared the interchange for Route 543 (the Riverside exit) at exit 80 at 7:50 a.m., he lost control of the 2006 Sterling box truck he was driving. Maryland State Police are still trying to determine what caused him to lose control of the large vehicle.
The truck overturned in the grassy median on the side of the road. Allbrook was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. His passenger, 25-year-old Shawna Beckett of Baltimore, was flown by State Police Medevac helicopter to the nearest Maryland Shock Trauma Center for treatment of serious injuries. She is currently listed to be in stable condition.
Maryland State Police say it appears that no other vehicles were involved in the fatal Maryland truck accident. They continue to investigate the circumstances of the crash. According to the Maryland Highway Safety Office, an average of 580 people die each year in Maryland auto accidents. Truck accidents are more likely to end in fatalities or serious injury simply due to the large size of the vehicles.
Our Silver Spring accident attorneys express their sympathies to the family of Mr. Allbrook and wish a speedy recovery to Ms. Beckett.
