Anthony Rice, a tow-truck driver has been arrested following the deadly collision on June 12 that killed MetroAccess driver Emmanuel Toshe, 50.
Toshe, a Silver Springs resident, died when his vehicle crashed into Rice’s tow-truck, which Rice had just made an illegally turn with on Interstate 495’s inner loop in Glenarden.
Rice then fled the accident scene, but police found him after his damaged truck was discovered at a tow lot in Capitol Heights.
Rice is being charged with leaving a fatal accident scene, making an illegal U-turn, and other offenses.
If you have been hurt in an accident involving a tow-truck, big rig, semi-truck, or tractor-trailer, you may want to speak with a personal injury lawyer.
Truck accident claims tend to be more complicated than car accident claims. Injury victims may have to deal with the truck company, the truck driver’s insurance company, and other parties that may be held liable for the accident.
A good truck accident lawyer can also refer you to the proper medical experts that you may need to treat your injuries.
