Multi-Vehicle Collision in La Plata Claims Woman’s LifeDecember 7, 2017
Early on Thursday morning, a multi-vehicle collision led to a fatality and several injuries. Around 2:30 am, a truck slammed into a blue sedan, which then struck a minivan in La Plata, Maryland. The 21-year-old woman from Hughesville, Maryland who was driving the blue sedan sustained life-threatening injuries while the 22-year-old man from Newburg, Maryland who was driving the truck and his male passenger from Waldorf, Maryland incurred personal injuries. All parties were transported to the University of Maryland Charles Regional Medical Center where the woman succumbed to her fatal injuries. The minivan driver escaped the multi-vehicle collision unscathed. Officials suspect that speeding and drunk driving may have contributed to the crash.
One car accident can very easily turn into a chain reaction crash or multi-vehicle collision if drivers are distracted or cannot safely maneuver around the wreckage. This type of collision may result in catastrophic injuries or even fatalities for victims. Drivers who use excessive speed or engage in intoxicated driving further add to the possibility of a serious crash.
