There was another terrible fatal car accident in St. Mary’s County, Maryland on Clover Road on March 23, 2009. A Lexington Park lady was killed on Monday. Lindsey Rudolph’s vehicle-a Honda Civic- apparently crossed the center line and went onto the wrong side of the roadway, and struck a vehicle-a Ford E-350- driven by Donald Matlock of Mechanicsville. Mr. Matlock apparently suffered serious injuries and is in the hospital as a result of the accident.

Although it is not clear why Ms. Rudolph’s vehicle was on the wrong side of the road, Mr. Matlock’s family should consider hiring a dedicated Silver Spring auto accident lawyer to investigate this car crash in Maryland and make a claim against Ms. Lindsey Rudolph’s estate if she was in fact at fault. It is always unfortunate when a legal claim needs to be made against a driver who is killed and/or injured in an accident.

At this point, we do not know why Ms. Lindsey Rudolph drove onto the wrong side of the roadway. Maybe she suffered a sudden medical emergency? Maybe she fell asleep while driving? Maybe she was distracted while talking on a cell phone and/or sending text messages? Maybe she was under the influence of drugs or alcohol?

These issues need to be properly investigated. Mr. Matlock should consider hiring a law firm with the experience and resources to investigate these issues.
