1 injured in accident when truck crashes through glass doors

When you're at home, you probably think you're safe from car accidents and other kinds of road accidents. Interestingly, if a vehicle collides with your home, or a light or electricity pole, it's still possible that you can be affected by the crash. When that happens, your injuries will need to be seen to, and you may have a right to compensation.

In a situation in Maryland, a woman in her own home was injured when a truck suddenly struck her apartment building and collided with her. The driver had been inside a 1998 Chevrolet S10 and was trying to back out of a covered parking space. He kept striking a support beam and eventually ended up hitting the apartment's sliding glass doors. That's when the 40-year-old woman inside was struck.

The Howard County police at the scene reported that the woman had to be taken to the hospital after the crash took place at around 9:30 a.m. She was reportedly in stable condition. The driver of the truck, a 40-year-old man from Silver Spring, was arrested at the scene. He was charged with negligent driving, the failure to control a vehicle in order to avoid a collision, and for driving without a valid license.

The man had fled the scene initially, but he was going for help, the report indicated. Police didn't report if they took a breathalyzer test or performed other investigations into the cause of the crash, but the fire department was able to report stabilizing the building to prevent further injuries as a result of the unstable walls.
