One person sustained injuries in a single-vehicle crash in Annapolis on Generals Highway. The accident occurred on Wednesday, July 21st. A news report disclosed that the single-vehicle crash in Annapolis happened after the car went off the roadway.
The report further disclosed that emergency vehicles responded at the crash site in the 1800 block of Generals Highway at approximately 1:20 p.m. after a 911 call of a single-vehicle accident. The preliminary investigation disclosed that a white Ford truck was on Generals Highway near Corbin Parkway when it went off the roadway for unknown reasons and struck a tree.
The first responders found the driver, a man in his 30s, trapped in the vehicle. It took them 20 minutes to free the man from the wrecked car, and paramedics transported him to Shock Trauma in Baltimore to treat serious but non-life-threatening injuries. There is no additional information on the crash at this time.
A single-vehicle accident is one of the most common types of car accidents. It happens when a car collides with debris, stationary objects or veers off the roadway. In most single-vehicle accidents, there is no fault party for the victim to file a claim against. Rather, their auto insurance coverage handles their losses and medical bills.
The story is different in a two-vehicle or multiple vehicle accident. Here, the responding law enforcement agency would investigate to determine the fault party. Once they do, the victim can file a claim to recover compensation from the at-fault party. If the two parties fail to settle, the victim can file a personal injury lawsuit. It will be a wrongful death action if the victim dies.
