Silver Spring, MD (January 2, 2022) – Just before 9 a.m., on Sunday, January 2, the Montgomery County Police Department responded to a crash on the Interstate 495 Beltway.
The police report that an unknown number of vehicles were involved in an accident on the outer lanes of the Interstate 495 Beltway. The incident blocked several lanes between Colesville Road and Georgia Avenue. Crews located a silver sedan off the side of the roadway with severe damage across the front, top and both sides. A gray Sonata was forced into the center median, resulting in moderate front and driver side damage.
Three people involved in the collision were injured. All three were provided care at the scene of the crash. Two victims were transported to area hospitals for further medical care.
At this time, the police are investigating to determine what led to the crash.
Our thoughts are with all of the victims who were left with injuries from this accident. We are hoping they make a full recovery.
Car Accidents in Maryland
Statistics show that around 10% of Maryland crashes each year take place on Interstate Highways. The increased speed limits and heavy traffic can seem like a place where most drivers let loose and rush to make it to their destination. Sharing a road with another driver who is reckless, however, can have life-changing consequences.
When drivers speed on busy highways, especially those covered with snow and ice, they are likely to lose control of their vehicles and crash into others. Striking walls after colliding with other vehicles just increases the risk of being severely injured. Year after year, we see the number of people hurt in auto wrecks increase at an alarming rate. When accidents are caused by drivers who are malicious, reckless, or negligent while operating their vehicles, victims much reach out to a car accident lawyer in Silver Spring to explore the legal options available to them. There are many instances where victims harmed in crashes can recover compensation for medical costs, lost earnings, and repair their vehicles.
