Any type of collision could have the potential to place the safety and lives of those involved at risk. In some cases, the initial impact could set off a chain reaction of events that may leave other drivers nearby with little to no chance of avoiding the impending danger. A recent car accident involving up to three vehicles in Maryland has reportedly left 2 individuals with injuries and claimed the lives of four others.
According to reports, the multiple-vehicle collision took place at around 5:30 p.m. on a recent Saturday. Authorities have advised that it began when the driver of a motor vehicle stopped to navigate a left turn when car suddenly crashed into the rear of this vehicle. The impact forced the first vehicle to cross into oncoming lanes, where it collided with a nearby pickup truck.

Two passengers in this vehicle were rushed to the hospital with severe injuries, one of whom passed away after arriving at the facility. Authorities have also advised that the driver and passenger in the truck were both rushed to a nearby medical facility with injuries.
