Single-car crash leaves Maryland investigators with unanswered questions

When emergency dispatchers arrived on the scene of a fatal motor vehicle accident earlier this month, they discovered a 25-year-old Baltimore man unconscious and unresponsive. A check of his pulse confirmed their fears: he was deceased.

It was at this point that troopers from the Maryland State Police began putting the pieces of the accident together. From the preliminary investigation, at some point while driving down Pulaski Highway, the 25-year-old lost control of his vehicle, sending the car into a sideways slide into a guardrail.

Although grateful that no one else was injured in the fatal car crash, investigators were still left with the daunting task of finding out what caused the accident in the first place. What caused the man to lose control of his car? Did another car suddenly cut into his lane, causing him to swerve out of the way? Were icy road conditions a factor? Or was a malfunction in the car to blame?

It's questions like this that the man's family will likely want the investigators to answer as they continue through the grieving process. Although answers to these questions will never bring back their loved one, they can help guide them through the difficult process of civil litigation in the event that another driver's negligence is found to be the reason for the crash.

Everyone knows that accidents such as this can happen at any time and to anyone but despite this knowledge, nothing can prepare us for the outcomes they often times bring. That's why it's important to get the right answers from the police so you know what steps you need to take next.
