57-year-old truck driver killed in fiery crash on I-70 in Frederick County

April 22, 2021

Interstate 70 in Frederick County was shut down for hours on March 23 after a fuel tanker left the roadway, crashed into a median, and overturned before bursting into flames. The 57-year-old driver was trapped and killed in the wreckage. Nobody else was hurt in the crash.

Based on the initial facts of the incident, it’s unclear who may have been at fault. Other vehicles were involved in the crash, although the truck was approaching a rest stop in the area, so it’s also possible the driver was distracted while looking for directions or tired from a long stretch on the road.

Depending on who is likely at fault in this situation, lawyers have a couple of different options. They can try to mount enough evidence to support their contention that their client was not at fault for the crash. If something or someone else caused the crash, the victim’s family might be entitled to compensation. In other situations, lawyers might try to negotiate a settlement with the other parties involved. Ultimately, consulting a lawyer will help you avoid complicated and aggressive conversations with insurance companies about who will end up paying for the damages related to a crash.
