Heroin Said To Be The Cause Of Fatal Accident In Annapolis

No one ever anticipated being involved in a car accident in Upper Marlboro given that most are fairly confident in their own driving skills. The assumption, then, is that being a skilled driver automatically equates to being able to avoid collisions. However. no amount of driving skill may make up for the fact that one is always at risk of encountering another on the road that may share his or her commitment to responsible driving. In such a case, even experienced drivers may not be able to avoid the potentially devastating consequences that can accompany one person's allegedly irresponsible behavior.

Such behavior is being cited by law enforcement officials as the cause of a multi-car crash in Annapolis. The testimony of a passenger in the vehicle that caused the accident (coupled with observations made by investigators at the scene) confirmed to authorities that the young man responsible for the accident had been driving under the influence of heroin. Officials say he was driving at excessive speeds when he crossed into the opposite lanes and stuck to other vehicles. He himself and one of his passengers sustained serious injuries, while two others were also injured. Sadly, the driver of one of the vehicles that were struck died from her injuries shortly after being transported to a local hospital.

There may be some who review a situation like this and claim any civil action taken by the families of victims against the negligent drivers as being pointless in that it will not bring their loved ones back. However, such action is typically not meant to be retaliatory (or even punitive) but rather a way to help in absorbing their losses. Those needed to initiate such action may first want to consult with an attorney.
