The recent fatal crash on Brock Bridge Road in Laurel, Maryland, is part of an epidemic of single car crashes in the Washington area. This phenomenon was reported on by The Washington Post and is sadly well-known to the attorneys at Clark and Steinhorn.
The November 13, 2013 crash killed Sydna Ann McCracken, 53, of Laurel, Maryland. The Prince George's County Police are investigating this fiery crash as a single car accident with a tree.
Such crashes rarely find their way into courts of law unless other witnesses observed the collision and attribute the cause to the actions of another vehicle.
