Tow truck driver hit and killed on the job

A tow truck driver was working on the road when he was hit by a car, according to the Anne Arundel County Police. The man was killed in the accident. He was just 48 years old.

According to reports, he was using a Safetow tow truck at approximately 3:30 in the afternoon. He went out on Belle Grove Road, where a car was disabled, to offer assistance, and he stopped his truck and got out.

While he was working to hook up the tow straps to the other vehicle, a Dodge Magnum came up behind him. It ran into him and the truck.

He survived that initial impact, but he was badly hurt. Emergency crews took him to Shock Trauma, and his injuries were described as life-threatening. He passed away at the medical center.

The man in the Dodge suffered minor injuries, as well. He's 31 years old. Emergency crews brought him to Harbor Hospital.

At the time, the police said that he should have reduced his speed and, by not doing so, caused the accident. They also said they thought drugs or alcohol may have played a role, and so they're now waiting to read the toxicology report and find out for sure.

Interestingly, the 31-year-old has been involved in a deadly accident before. In 2009, he was driving a car that hit another vehicle. A woman died in that accident.

After a deadly DUI accident, families of those who are killed face significant financial challenges, from lost wages to medical bills to funeral costs. While compensation doesn't bring the deceased back, it may still be wise to look into all legal options.
