There have been at least 3 fatal Maryland auto accidents on the last two weeks on Route 50 (inside the Capital Beltway) near Route 410. This is a very dangerous roadway in Prince George's County, Maryland where motorists tend to drive faster than the posted speed limit. Most recently, on Saturday February 21, 2009, an Acura MDX driven by Michael Madlock of Bowie, MD struck a 2008 Nissan going in the same direction as the Acura. There were 5 occupants in the Nissan and two of the 5 were apparently ejected from the vehicle and killed. Another passenger in the Nissan was also killed.
The Maryland State Police's preliminary investigation of the accident suggests that Mr. Madlock was driving erratically and speeding. Since it was a fatal crash, there will most likely be a complete accident reconstruction done. It typically takes several weeks -and sometimes even longer--for the Detailed Crash Investigation Report to be completed. Another fatal accident occurred in Gaithersburg, Maryland. Michael Greenya (aka Michael J. Greenya) was a pedestrian and he was struck by a vehicle on Muddy Branch Road in Gaithersburg, MD. The police are investigating this incident as well and anyone with information should call (301) 840-2435. The families of those injured and killed in this terrible crash should not talk to the insurance company until they hire a Maryland lawyer.
