Montgomery County, MD (January 28, 2022) – Several victims were transported to nearby hospitals after a crash involving several vehicles took place in Montgomery County during the early morning hours on January 27. Right before 3 a.m., the Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Services were called to a crash on Interstate 270.
Reports from MCFRS show that a collision with several vehicles occurred on the northbound side of Interstate 270. Several overturned vehicles were located along the roadway near Exits 9-10. The vehicles had multiple patients inside.
A hazardous materials team was requested to provide assistance on-site due to a fuel spill from one of the semi-trucks involved. The truck reportedly overturned and spilled fuel on the roadway.
Five people were transported to local hospitals for the treatment of injuries. One of the victims suffered serious injuries but the condition of the other four is not known.
The police in Montgomery County assisted firefighters at the scene as they worked for nearly three hours to clear the vehicles and debris.
Investigators are trying to determine what caused the crash.
Our thoughts are with the five people who suffered injuries as a result of this crash.
Car Accidents in Maryland
Over 100,000 people are hurt in crashes each year in Maryland. Many victims suffer serious injuries that leave them hospitalized for several days. Many people have to spend weeks out of work to recover.
When people suffer injuries in crashes, it is important to identify the circumstances that caused the crash. We see many people hurt in accidents caused by drivers who speed, drivers who fail to yield the right of way, and even motorists who are impaired by drugs or alcohol. Given the rise in technology, we are seeing a significant number of crashes caused by drivers who are distracted by their telephones.
When crashes are a result of negligence, victims can file personal injury lawsuits against those at-fault. These lawsuits provide victims with the ability to obtain compensation for medical costs, vehicle repairs, and other costs that they face from their accidents. Working with a Montgomery County car accident lawyer will help you get compensation for these and other expenses resulting from your accident.
