Maryland man charged in fatal Rockville crash

From backcountry roads to fast-paced interstate highways, Maryland offers every type of driver a great way to get where they are going. However, each of these roads has unique challenges that may cause a motor vehicle accident -- and these can cost lives.

One of the greatest hazards on the roads is drivers who illegally operate a car under the influence of alcohol or drugs. There are stiff criminal penalties for DUI drivers or those who drive while slightly intoxicated, although these can offer petty relief to the victims of accidents and their families.

A Bethesda man who allegedly fled the scene of a fatal accident in Rockville is being charged with driving under the influence. The 56-year-old driver of a scooter was struck and killed late in the evening on Rockville Pike when he was struck by a luxury sedan.

The 24-year-old driver of the car allegedly stopped next to the scene and fled the accident scene on foot. He was shortly found by local police and charged in connection to the fatal accident. Montgomery County officials are still investigating the incident and considering further charges.

Victims of DUI accidents -- and the survivors of those killed by drivers under the influence -- have the right to pursue a civil lawsuit in addition to the potential criminal charges that drivers at fault face under Maryland law. A legal representative may aid the difficult process of considering legal options to help make victims and their families whole after a destructive and an injurious collision.
