Officials from the Maryland State Police are currently in search of a hit-and-run driver who caused the death of a man on southbound I-97. According to a Washington Examiner report, the 50-year-old victim was ejected from a truck during a crash and was fatally struck by another vehicle, which immediately left the scene of the collision.
The fatal car crash occurred around 3:00 am on Interstate 97 between Route 32 and Benfield Boulevard when a truck travelling north struck a guardrail and overturned. The accident caused both the driver and passenger to be ejected from the vehicle. The passenger had been thrown into the southbound lanes of the interstate and was beginning to stand up when he was struck by a vehicle. The vehicle did not stop and the victim died at the scene.
Currently, the driver of the truck is undergoing treatment for his injuries and Maryland Police are in search of the hit-and-run driver.
Victims of hit-and-run crashes are often left with serious, if not fatal, injuries and major losses from their collision, with no guilty party to be found. However, there is hope for victims. If the at-fault driver is found, he or she can be held responsible for all costs caused by the crash. If the driver cannot be found, many victims can still find compensation through provisions by their insurance companies.
Proving fault and finding needed compensation from insurance providers is no easy feat, but with help from a Maryland hit-and-run victim lawyer at Alpert Schreyer, victims have a good chance for recovery. To learn more about how we may be able to help you, call (800) 489-1577.
