As is the case in most of the country's other metro areas, Marylanders now have the ability to hail a ride through Uber, Lyft or another ridesharing company. These companies are known to be cheaper than a taxi service, as they involve private parties simply using their personal vehicles to take people where they need to go.
Although any vehicle can skid so the front of the vehicle is traveling in a different direction than the back, when this happens to a truck, the result can be disastrous.
A serious Maryland accident on Christmas Eve that involved a driver hitting a couple in a horse and buggy left a man in a hospital with significant injuries. The man had to be taken via helicopter from the scene of the accident to a local hospital.
