A recent accident led to three fatalities when a bus driver crashed into other vehicles on an interstate highway. The accident involved a bus carrying members of a student organization called the National Association for Black Engineers from North Carolina. They were en route to Baltimore for an annual fall conference. The accident also involved a pickup truck and a tractor-trailer that was transporting logs. Like many tractor-trailer accidents, especially multiple-vehicle collisions, the damage from the accident was severe.
Auto collisions, however tragic, are not always the result of carelessness, distraction or even reckless driving. Rather, car accidents can be cause by any number of factors. For example, a defect in the vehicle or even an unexpected medical emergency can result in an auto collision.
A formal indictment has been returned against two people who caused the death of two teenagers in Baltimore. The girls, age 16 and 17, were walking along Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard when a car, speeding at more than 80 miles per hour, struck and killed them. The fatal car accident became a hit-and-run crash when the car sped away.
