Two days after being injured in a pedestrian vs. car accident in Woodlawn, one local woman died from the injuries she sustained in the collision.
On Thursday, January 2, a vehicle traveling through the intersection of Security Boulevard and Woodlawn Drive struck a 58-year-old woman. Emergency personnel, including the Baltimore County Police and fire personnel, responded to the location of the collision shortly after 9:00 p.m.
An early investigation of the accident concluded that the woman was crossing at the intersection when she was struck by the oncoming vehicle traveling eastbound on Security Boulevard. According to official police reports, the vehicle, a Volkswagen Jetta, remained at the scene.
Following the accident, the woman was taken to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center to receive medical treatment for the severe injuries she sustained. It is reported that two days later, she died. The woman’s name had not yet been released to the public, as authorities waited to notify her next-of-kin.
The Baltimore County Police Department Crash Team is investigating the exact details of the crash.
At Lewis & Tompkins, we understand the dangerous reality of pedestrian related accidents. Too many times, pedestrians are helpless against the vehicles that run them over. Often, these unnecessary accidents are caused by a motorist’s lack of attention, or simply a failure to yield to pedestrians crossing the street. When this is the case, we strongly believe that those negligent parties should be held accountable for their actions.
Our thoughts go out to the family and loved ones grieving the loss of this woman after such a tragic incident.
