Several people were injured in a Chesapeake Bay Bridge crash on Tuesday afternoon, April 20. The head-on accident happened atop the westbound span of the Chesapeake Bay during the use of two-way traffic lanes.
According to Cpl. Brady McCormick, a spokesperson for the Maryland Transportation Authority Police, the accident was reported at 2:57 p.m. The emergency services from Queen Anne’s County responded to the accident.
The crash involved several vehicles and several people ended up injured. They were taken to area hospitals. McCormick reported that on Wednesday there were no fatalities in the said Chesapeake Bay Bridge crash.
The westbound span was closed after an accident near the highpoint of the crossing and was closed until about 6 p.m. The traffic continued moving on the eastbound span of the bridge while the lanes were shut down, but two-way traffic was not allowed on that bridge. The westbound span has three lanes, and the eastbound bridge has only two.
If you were involved and injured in a multiple-vehicle accident, make sure to get medical help as soon as possible. Even though the police will ask you questions, it’s better if you wait for your car accident attorney before you give detailed answers.
Be sure to call a car accident attorney as soon as possible. If you aren’t at fault having an attorney by your side is important if you decide to seek a compensation claim. Insurance companies will work hard to offer a low settlement; they would offer you to sign various papers but you shouldn’t do this before you consult with your attorney.
