In Howard County, one person died and five others were hurt in a head-on crash on Thursday in Lisbon. Mt. Airy resident Milton Stanley Bowens Sr., 64, was declared dead at the scene on Frederick Road close to East Daisy Road. Three of the passengers that had been riding in his Ford Explorer with him, 44-year-old Adrienne Jones, and her teenage daughters Corin and Jasmin Disney, were sent to hospitals in serious or critical condition.
According to Howard County police, a speeding BMW crossed a double line a number of times in an attempt to pass other cars before crashing into the SUV. The driver of the BMW was 22-year-old Joel Nathaniel Wareham. Wareham and his passenger were admitted to Maryland Shock Trauma Center and were released on Friday.
Following Wareham’s release, he was arrested at his home. He has been charged with drunk driving and speeding.
If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident in Maryland or Washington DC, it is important that you speak to an experienced Baltimore personal injury lawyer first before trying to negotiate a settlement agreement with the responsible party’s insurance company. A good Maryland car crash lawyer can work with accident reconstructionists who can investigate the accident scene and determine who and what caused the collision.
Accident reconstructionists are experts at taking physical evidence and examining clues from the accident site to reconstruct what happened before, during, and after the accident. Motor vehicle accident reconstructionists can determine who was speeding or whether the crash was caused by poor weather conditions, a defective product, or another factor.
The more evidence that your Maryland motor vehicle lawyer can gather proving the other party’s liability, the greater your chances of recovering the maximum recovery that you are owed.
