On Wednesday afternoon, a fatal crash occurred that involved a trash truck, SUV, and pedestrian in Baltimore. Around 2:15 pm, an elderly woman attempted to cross the street, and then was fatally struck by an SUV, which then threw her in the direction of a trash truck. Two other victims needed hospitalization for undisclosed personal injuries in the fatal crash. Additionally, due to a diesel fuel spill from the truck, a hazmat crew was called to monitor and clean up the leak.

Pedestrians are entitled to use the road just like vehicles do. Unfortunately, drivers may become distracted or fail to use caution when pedestrians appear or be unaware of the pedestrian laws in place. In any case, this could lead to personal injuries or even fatalities for all parties involved.
