From one side of Maryland to the next, including big cities and small towns, car accidents happen from time to time. Some of these incidents result in no injuries and little damage; however, there are others in which those involved are taken to the hospital for treatment or even killed.
Recently, a two-car accident in Harford County left two people injured. According to the Harford County Sheriff’s Office, the accident occurred on Watervale Road at approximately 8:30 p.m.
As a result of the accident, a man in one car was transported to Shock Trauma, and the man in another was transported to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. At this time, there is no additional information on the current condition of the injured men or the cause of the accident. It is being reported that no other people were injured in the accident.
This incident caused Watervale Road to be shut down for a period of time while police investigated.
Car accidents can be very serious, no matter where it happens or how many people are involved. Even when two vehicles collide at a slow rate of speed, there is always the chance that an injury or death could occur. This is why it is so important for every driver to be aware of his or her surroundings at all times.
Many accidents could be avoided if one of the people involved would have been paying closer attention to the road. Despite the best efforts of the authorities to keep negligent drivers off the road, there is no surefire way of doing so. However, compensation may be sought by those who are injured through a civil lawsuit. Damages might include claims for pain and suffering, medical bills and lost wages, among others.
