If you're like hundreds of other vehicle owners in Maryland, then you may have received a recall notice in the last few months directing you to get your airbag replaced at your local dealership. While some vehicle owners brush off recall notices because of the inconvenience factor, this is not a recall notice our Upper Marlboro readers should ignore.
A deadly two-vehicle crash to our north in Halethorpe is reminding our Upper Marlboro readers about the dangers of getting out of your vehicle after stopping on the side of a busy road. Some of you may have heard about the crash, which occurred this month when a 29-year-old man was struck by a moving vehicle after getting out of a truck to "fix something," WBAL TV said. The man reportedly died from his injuries.
