Maryland woman extracted with Jaws of Life after accident

In today's busy world, a distracted driver or someone who is texting and driving can cause an accident in the blink of an eye. Unfortunately minor and major car accidents happen everyday, and sometimes people suffer serious injuries.

A Maryland woman was flown by Medevac helicopter to Baltimore's Maryland Shock Trauma Center after a car accident on Feb. 12. The accident occurred in nearby Joppatowne at the corner of Joppa Farm Road and Route 40. According to the Joppa-Magnolia Volunteer Fire Company, the accident occurred a little bit before 2 p.m.

The two-car accident left the 57-year-old woman trapped in her vehicle, and the Jaws of Life had to be used to extract her. According to reports, responders managed to get the woman out of the vehicle at 2:13 p.m. She was then sent on the helicopter to the trauma center, but her condition was not immediately available.

Maryland State Police are still investigating the accident to determine what happened, and the westbound lanes of Route 40 were closed for a short time. According to reports, the driver of the other vehicle did not sustain any injuries.

In cases like this, the investigation of the events leading up to and during the crash is vital. If a negligent driver is found to be at fault, the injured party may be able to receive compensation for medical expenses sustained in the wreck or lost wages from missed work. Talking through the situation and legal possibilities with someone who understands how the court system works can be a first step forward for injured victims.
