Car accidents occur throughout the Baltimore area on a regular basis. Some of these accidents do not lead to injuries or death, but others are much more serious. Recently, a two-vehicle accident at N. Kresson Street and Pulaski Highway sent a 19-year-old pregnant woman to the hospital for the treatment of injuries.
According to police, the accident occurred at approximately 1:15 p.m. It was then that a car traveling east on Pulaski Highway collided with a vehicle traveling west on the same road. The driver of the first vehicle refused medical attention; however, the driver of the vehicle that was hit was taken to the hospital for the treatment of injuries.
The 19-year-old pregnant woman was a passenger in the second vehicle, and Baltimore City Police have noted that both her and the baby were in the hospital in critical condition.
There is no additional information on why the driver of the first vehicle struck the second vehicle. Furthermore, there are no additional details on how the woman and her unborn baby are fairing.
These types of car accidents are more common than they should be, with one driver not paying attention and hitting another for one reason or the next. In this case, the driver of the vehicle that was struck, as well as a pregnant passenger, were injured due to the negligence of another party.
Personal injury lawsuits help victims of car accidents recoup compensation for their medical expenses and lost wages, as well as for non-economical losses such as pain and suffering, emotional distress and more.
