Two people killed and others injured in Maryland truck accident

When a large truck is involved in a traffic accident with another vehicle, the consequences can be devastating for people in smaller vehicles. Recently, a truck accident involving four cars and a rented truck has resulted in the death of two people and injuries to six others, including two children.

According to officials from the Maryland State Police, two senior citizens were stopped at a traffic signal in their 2011 Ford Focus while traveling east on Route 231. While they were waiting for the light to change, their car was rammed from behind by a rented truck, which forced the Focus into oncoming traffic, where it crashed head on with a 2001 Mitsubishi. The rented truck eventually crashed into a 2003 Saturn driven by a woman with two child passengers on board.

In total, four vehicles on the road were involved in the accident, resulting in the two seniors being killed and a number of other people being injured.

One of the cars involved in the crash was reported to have been lodged under the rental truck, which came to rest in a ditch along the side of the road.

A nearby witness reported seeing smoke and steam rising from the crash scene and stopped to render assistance to the accident victims. The witness helped firefighters pull one woman out of her mangled car, which had rolled over during the crash. Witnesses reported that she had been screaming at rescuers to get her out and that she sustained major cuts to her knee and shin.
