Woman killed in Maryland pedestrian accident

A fatal car accident in close proximity to the University of Maryland campus left a 21-year-old woman dead, and a 33-year-old man facing multiple drunk driving charges.

According to Prince George's County Police Department, the accident occurred at approximately 3 a.m. on Baltimore Avenue in College Park.

Despite the fact that the man driving the vehicle fled the scene, he was later apprehended by police. He is facing 13 criminal charges, including drunken driving as well as negligent automobile homicide. Furthermore, police noted that his blood alcohol level had reached twice the legal limit.

According to documents related to the accident, the woman was hit with such force that the vehicle's windshield shattered and some of her hair was stuck in the glass.

The victim's family is broken up over the accident, saying that they are unable to get what they really want. Her brother said, "Justice is to be able to have her back, but we can't have her back, so whatever the system decides is the best justice. That's what we have to be satisfied with. Drinking and driving should not go unpunished."

These types of pedestrian accidents should never happen, as anybody who is under the influence of alcohol or drugs should avoid getting behind the wheel. Unfortunately, when this occurs, the chance of an accident is much greater.

This is not the first time this year that somebody was killed in the local area, with several others dying in pedestrian accidents. In this case, the man who caused the accident is facing criminal charges and the woman's family must decide how to move forward with their life.
