Four-car accident injuries three, shuts down Route 33

A four-car accident this week is still be investigated according to the Maryland State Police. The accident occurred Tuesday afternoon along state Route 33 at Leehaven Road.

Investigators on the scene said that a 60-year-old woman, who was driving a Ford SUV, was waiting to turn onto Leehaven Road off of Route 33 when a Toyota car struck her from behind. The impact of the collision sent her car into the opposite lane of Route 33, where it struck a Chevrolet SUV. That SUV went off the road and crashed into a utility pole, knocking it down. A fourth vehicle skidded off the road in order to avoid the crash.

The driver of the Toyota was flown to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he is in stable condition. Two others were taken to a local hospital and they are also in stable condition. Everyone else did not sustain any injuries and did not need medical treatment.

Police are reconstructing the accident scene and are trying to determine if the driver of the Toyota had a medical emergency, or simply did not see the other driver stopped waiting to make a turn.

This type of multi-car accident brings to light how quickly a chain reaction accident can happen. If you've been injured in an accident because of the possible negligence by another driver, you should contact a personal injury attorney. They understand the emotional, physical and financial strains that an accident can cause and will work to help you figure out your options. An attorney will provide you with the best approach that fits your circumstances and benefits you the most.
