    WTH! Inattentive Drivers??

    I have been tracking accidents in my area as reported by the BayNet for the last 9 months, specifically route 235 from Dameron to Hermanville Road.

    THREE (3) single vehicle accidents in about a one mile stretch of mostly straight road in the last 6 days - WTF!! Put your damn phones down people before you run into me or one of my family members!!!

    I heard the helo fly over for this last accident about 30 minutes ago, even though article says driver conscious and walking around. Broken fingernail needs trauma care??

    Another reason to thank Steny and the BRAC staff.

    Perhaps a medical emergency.

    Maybe for one, but all three? Stretches plausibility a bit I think. And I suspect that medical emergency crashes are a much smaller set than most people think.

    I was always curious why my car insurance went up when I moved from Baltimore County to Calvert County. Over the past 7 years of living here, I know why.

    Same driver in two of the accidents... it appears to be a medical emergency. That being said, he should have his license yanked.

    Never even went down so I came off really good. But this guy was out of his car and concious. I always though the helo rides were for people who need to get to trauma fast, life threatening sort of stuff. Lately it seems you only have to sneeze and they are whisking you away for a 10K helicopter ride. Seems like maybe they are justifying the helos presence........
