Catonsville Beltway Accident Claims Two Lives

On the afternoon of Friday, January 9, 2009, a single-car crash claimed the lives of two victims and snarled traffic for several hours according to this Maryland auto accident report in the Baltimore Sun. Maryland State Police officials said that the auto accident occurred around [2:30] P.M. on January 9, 2009, on a Beltway ramp at the exit for the westbound Baltimore National Pike near the intersection of Interstate 695 and U.S. 40 in Catonsville.

Maryland State Police officials responding to the scene of the accident said that a 2002 Ford van had left the road, hit a telephone pole, then a tree and caught fire. They said that the two occupants of the van were killed at the scene and burned beyond recognition. The two victims of the Maryland auto accident were still unknown when the article was published, but police officials were waiting for forensics on the victims’ identities and investigating what caused the van to leave the road.

It is profoundly sad that so many people are injured and killed each year in Maryland auto accidents. Many times the causes of the accidents are slick roads, a driver’s inexperience behind the wheel, driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, tailgating or driver error.
