2-Year-Old Killed, Infant and 2 Adults Hurt in Waldorf Crash

A 2-year-old boy was killed and an infant and two adults were hurt in a “nearly head-on” car accident Tuesday in Waldorf, police say. 

Rahssan Johnson was rushed to a hospital and pronounced dead after the crash on Route 5 (Leonardtown Road) near Pika Road, Maryland State Police said Wednesday. 

The toddler’s mother and 2-month-old brother were taken to hospitals for injuries. The infant was flown to Children’s National Hospital via helicopter. A second driver also was hurt and was taken to a hospital. Information on the extent of the injuries of the wounded was not released. 

Johnson’s mother, a 21-year-old, was driving a 2017 Hyundai Elantra that crashed with a 2018 Ford F-250 truck. State troopers responded at about 2:30 p.m. 

The cause of the deadly crash is still unknown and an investigation is underway. Police said they were investigating any role the children’s car seats may have played.

Common Causes of Bus Accidents

Every day, thousands of residents and visitors to Maryland rely on bus transportation. When using buses to get around the state, passengers transfer their safety into the care of bus company owners and bus drivers. 

Bus operators and owners have a legal obligation to protect the safety of their passengers. However, there are many instances where the reckless actions or omissions of such parties can lead to accidents, injury, loss, and death.

What To Do After a Car Accident

Car accidents can be life-altering, leading to various degrees of injury, expenses from medical treatment, loss of income, and death. Reports from the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reveal that in 2020, 38,680 people died in car accidents, and in the first half of 2021, the figure was 20,160.

Comparative Negligence in Truck Accident Cases

Accidents happen every day. Truck accidents are particularly dangerous and can result in catastrophic injuries or even death. A typical passenger vehicle is no match for a commercial truck weighing over 80,000 pounds.
