One Dead in a Single-Vehicle Crash in Montgomery County

A driver was killed in a single-vehicle crash in Montgomery County early on February 15. The accident happened on the Clara Barton Parkway on the border between D.C. and Montgomery County.

The U.S. Park Police officers reacted to reports of a vehicle smashing into a roadside barrier at the bridge over Little Falls Branch (that is close to the state line). The crash took place shortly after midnight Monday.

The vehicle’s only occupant was taken to a hospital for treatment, where they later died of their injuries. The police haven’t released the identity of the victim so far.

The police continue investigating the reason for the single-vehicle crash in Montgomery County.

The Clara Barton Parkway was reopened to all traffic around 5:30 a.m. after a five-hour closure that happened after the crash.

If you or a loved one were involved in an accident, no matter how it happened or who caused it, you should call the police, seek medical help and if you can at the exact moment, contact your car accident attorney.

Even if you were at fault, try not to comment about it in front of the other involved parties, or the police, because everything you say will be used against you. If you have damages and injuries, you might not be able to collect a compensation claim if you keep saying that it was your fault.

If you have lost a loved one in an accident, you can file a lawsuit and seek settlement for your loss. This will help you cover the medical bills, funeral and burial expenses but it will also help you move on with your life.
