UPDATE: Mark Ford Injured in Tractor-Trailer Accidnet on Interstate 70 in Ellicott City, Maryland

Update [June 26, 2014]: Mark Ford has passed away from his injuries at a hospital on June 23. You can read an updated version of this blog post here.

ELLICOT CITY, MD — A crash involving a pickup truck and a tractor-trailer sent one motorist to the hospital in Ellicott City, Maryland on Thursday, June 12th, 2014, according to a news article released by WBAL-TV.

Police working with local accident investigators have said that they have reason to believe 51-year-old Mark Ford was hurt when the Toyota Tundra he was driving collided with a tractor-trailer that turned in front of him while driving on Interstate 70 around 9:40 Thursday night.

Scene of the Accident



Mark Ford was taken by EMS personnel to Shock Trauma Hospital where a spokesperson last listed him in critical condition. No other injuries were reported in the collision.

Officials from the Maryland State Police are currently investigating the accident.


The news report about the accident released over the weekend indicates that the tractor-trailer was making a turn when the accident happened. If this turns out to be true, I’d be very curious to see the layout of the road where the crash occurred. If the truck didn’t have the right of way, or if the driver failed to ensure the road was clear before he attempted the maneuver, the trucking company could be found liable for this accident, but it all depends on how the investigation turns out, either way, this situation needs a much closer look.

I'm a former employee. I had brought up this exact scenario and suggested a maintenance procedure that would eliminate the possibility of this type injury. Obviously my warning went unheeded.

I was actually a couple cars back from this wreck, one of the first on the scene, and helped administer CPR on the victims. The truck driver was going way too fast, but it was actually his trailer that swung around and hit the suv, the semi-truck ended in the median.

A lot of people say smack about lawyers, but I want to say that I'm glad there is a way that people who are wronged by corporate neglect can get justice and force change. We are living in a world where corporations and govt care less than ever about common people, and I support your work. I hope I will never need your services.

Thank you for posting these accident articles on your site. At the company that I work for, e deal with monitoring construction activity and work around trenches and all sorts of construction equipment/vehicles. I sometimes wonder if construction companies have enough safety training to inform employees of how to protect themselves while on the job.
