St. Mary’s Accident Leaves One Dead, Another Injured

By Peter DePaolis

An accident in St. Mary’s County, Maryland, on October 27, 2009, caused one man’s death and a woman to be injured. Police at the scene of the accident on Route 235 say the man was driving a Honda and crossed the center line early that morning. He hit a woman driving a Trailblazer head on. She was taken to an area hospital.

The accident could have been prevented had the man been paying attention to where he was driving at the time of the crash. Many drivers try to do other things while they are behind the wheel like check their text messages, talk on the phone and adjust the radio. Accidents caused by drivers crossing median can also be caused by drivers falling asleep at the wheel. Drivers should make sure they get plenty of rest before getting into their cars, says a qualified Maryland injury attorney at Koonz, McKenney, Johnson & DePaolis L.L.P.
