Malden Motor Vehicle Accidents

Malden has options to use Boston’s bus system, commuter rail and the subway’s Orange line, which has stops in at the Malden Center and Oak Grove. Despite the public transportation, Malden still has quite a few auto accidents.Malden can get busy since Route 28, Route 60, Route 99, and U.S. 1 run through it. Furthermore, a short distance away from the city’s borders is Route 16 and Interstate 92. Additional to the heavy incoming and outgoing traffic, one of the most common jobs in Malden is driver/ sales workers and truck drivers. All of these factors can contribute to creating and finding oneself involved in an auto accident on one of the many roads available in Malden.In 2009, there were three fatal related accidents, four vehicles involved in fatal accidents, three fatalities, four people involved in fatal accidents, and one pedestrian involved in a fatal accident. Most of these accidents took place near large roads, like Fellsway East and Glennwood. Some accidents take place near parks, like Roosevelt Park near Salem Street. In 2008, Malden had more fatal accidents caused by drunk drivers than the entire state average of Massachusetts.If you do find yourself involved in a car or auto vehicle accident in the many neighborhoods in Malden; such as, Faulkner, West End, Edgeworth, Ferryway, Forestdale, Linden, Maplewood, and Bellrock, you should take a few steps to protect yourself.If you are injured in Malden, or in any auto accident, obtain as much information about the vehicles and persons involved, starting with the license plate number, driver’s name, and their contact information.
