The holiday season is a busy time for most everyone in Maryland. When it involves additional driving, the chances of being involved in motor vehicle accidents increase. It is easier to become distracted when behind the wheel as one's mind is more likely to wander while contemplating the added work and social obligations of the season.
The holiday season brings an increase in truck and delivery traffic on roads that are already congested. The increased traffic increases the likelihood of motor vehicle accidents in Maryland. An early morning crash involving a car and a delivery truck resulted in the deaths of two people and serious injuries to another. The accident happened on a recent Saturday morning.
For many students in Maryland and throughout the U.S., their trip to and from school involves riding a school bus. This is generally a very safe mode of travel.
