In a devastating incident that unfolded earlier this month, a multi-vehicle collision on Interstate 81 near Maugansville in Washington County, Maryland, left two people dead and three others injured. According to a local news report, the multi-vehicle accident was triggered when an SUV collided with the rear of a tractor-trailer that had come to a halt due to traffic conditions. This initial collision set off a chain reaction, involving three additional tractor-trailers and a pickup truck. Tragically, two lives were lost in the aftermath of this horrific accident. This tragedy demonstrates the unpredictability and potential dangers that Maryland drivers face every day.
How Can You Stay Safe on Maryland Highways?
Maryland drivers need to pay attention to the speed of traffic ahead, and always be ready to slow down if necessary. Drivers following too closely are a leading cause of highway accidents and multi-car collisions. When cars travel at highway speeds, it is advised to leave at least 350 feet between themselves and the car in front of them at a speed of 70 miles per hour. Drivers following too closely may be responsible for any damage or injury caused in an accident.
