Driver Killed In Collision Caused By Chain Reaction

Medical symbol

A three-car collision that occurred in Jessup recently left one driver dead and another injured. An investigation shows that a 2010 Freightliner box-truck driver traveling north on U.S. Rt. 1 south of Kit Kat Road rear-ended a 2000 Volkswagen Jetta that was in the through traffic lane, but was about to make a left turn into the U.S. 1 Shopping Center.*

The force of the car crash pushed the Volkswagen into a 2006 Chrysler 300, which had also been preparing to make a left turn from the through traffic lane. The Volkswagen driver was taken to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where she died due to her injuries later that evening. The operator of the box truck was uninjured. The Chrysler driver also had no injuries.

Investigators are seeking to determine why the drivers of the two cars were making left turns into the shopping center from the through traffic lane rather than using the left turn lane that is designated for entrance into the shopping center.
