Woman killed in Cecil County crash marks high-fatality year

Many Marylanders would not get very far without cars, and most of them would not get food or clothing if it were not for trucks. Every corner of the Old Line State is accessible by road, and drivers have to exercise care from the farms north of Hagerstown to the causeways of Ocean City to avoid collisions and other accidents.

Cecil County has seen a record-breaking year of traffic fatalities, with 30 people killed in traffic accidents. After 35 people died on the county's roads in the preceding two years, 2017 was a five-year high following the death of a 63-year-old driver on an on-ramp to Interstate 95 in Perryville just after dusk on Dec. 29.

A 56-year-old man from Havre de Grace was driving his pickup truck on U.S. Route 222 southbound near the interchange when he struck the victim's sport utility vehicle from the rear while it was stopped in the left-turn lane waiting to enter the highway. The man was also hurt in the accident and both were evacuated to a local hospital for treatment.

The woman later died of her injuries. Local police are investigating the cause of the crash. 

Survivors of those killed in traffic accidents have the right to seek financial damages, including reimbursement for lost earnings and compensation for pain and emotional distress. An attorney can help interested parties sort out their options and pursue a settlement, civil action or other legal avenues to being made as whole as possible after a tragic accident.
