In Maryland, A Delaware Man Is Arrested After Injuring Another Driver In Car Accident On Route 50

A Delaware man was arrested for driving under the influence this weekend in Maryland. Maryland State Police say that Frederick Neil Cline was speeding and driving eastbound on Route 50 in a westbound lane when his car collided with Gavin Jay Bayline’s car. Bayline, a Salisbury resident, sustained non-life threatening injuries and was taken to the Peninsula Regional Medical Center for treatment.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says that due to alcohol-related car accidents in 2001:

-nearly 18,000 people were killed.

-300,000 people were injured.

In 2004:
-alcohol-related car crashes represented 39% of all traffic-related fatalities.

-approximately 1.4 million drivers were arrested for driving under the influence. This is less than 1% of the 159 million self-reported episodes of alcohol-impaired driving done by US adults each year.

If you have been injured in an alcohol-related car crash or someone you love has been injured or killed because of drunk driving, you may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit. The experience is a traumatic one with often life-changing repercussions. You also may be eligible to file a personal injury lawsuit and should consult a personal injury attorney.
