Three-Car Crash Involving Tractor Trailer on I-95 Leaves One Dead
Posted on Jul 30, 2013
One man died in a head-on collision with a tractor-trailer during the early morning hours of Wednesday, June 26 along Interstate 95. Maryland State Police have not yet released the names of any of those involved in the Maryland truck crash, pending an investigation.
What is known is that two cars were traveling along northbound Interstate 95 in Beltsville, a census-designated place in northern Prince George’s County, around 3:30 a.m. Wednesday. The cars, a red Toyota Celica and a black Infinity, apparently both went off the road for an unknown reason. The Infinity came to a stop in the grassy median along the highway. The Toyota, however, continued through the grassy median and directly into the southbound lanes of traffic. The driver of the Toyota then collided head-on with an 18-wheeler that was traveling southbound.
According to Maryland State Police, the impact of the head-on collision crushed the car and killed the driver of the Toyota. Neither the driver of the Infinity nor the driver of the truck was injured in the crash.
It is so far unclear what caused the two cars to go off the road or if the Infinity was involved in the resulting truck accident. A preliminary investigation shows that the driver of the Toyota caused the fatal head-on collision that led to his death.
The Silver Spring truck accident attorneys at Nickelsporn and Lundin express their deepest sympathies to the families affected by this tragedy.
