Auto accidents are tragic enough, but when passengers are injured due to the actions of the driver of the vehicle in which they are riding, that’s even more heartrending. Children especially should never be subjected to the life-threatening injuries of an avoidable single-car accident. As a Maryland personal injury and auto accident attorney, my firm handles cases not unlike the one reported in a recent news article.
According to an investigation by the Maryland State Police, a 2001 Toyota Sienna minivan was headed southbound on Whitesburg Road near Oak Hill Road when it apparently went out of control. Police reason that the minivan driven by a Uyen Buu was traveling at an excessive speed — deemed too fast for conditions — and crossed the northbound lane of Whitesburg Road, then slid off the roadway and crashed into a tree in a nearby wooded area.
Police said that all of the passengers were injured as a result of the crash. The adult driver of the minivan suffered non-life threatening injuries and was transported to Peninsula Regional Medical Center (PRMC). The two children, a five-year-old and a six-year-old, were transported to PRMC and then flown to John Hopkins in Baltimore.
