Alcohol, Anger and Motor Vehicles

A Washington County woman died at the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore from injuries sustained in a two-vehicle accident in Cascade on Friday. Apparently, the woman left a bar in Cascade and drove off in a pickup truck driven by a man she just argued with at the bar. I am assuming they were or had been in a relationship, but I don’t know.

Anger and cars do not mix, and alcohol and cars do not mix as well. When you throw in all three, the likelihood of a tragic outcome rises exponentially.

You can read an article on this tragedy from a Hagerstown local newspaper here. Note: I’m assuming there was alcohol involved to some degree because they were at a bar, but that is an assumption.
