The Maryland law prohibiting the use of a handheld phone or communication device while driving a car has been amended to assess more severe penalties in the event of a serious accident. If you are texting while driving and cause an accident which directly results in the death or serious bodily injury of another, it will be considered a misdemeanor. Conviction carries a possible sentence of up to one year in prison, or a fine of up to $5,000, or both.

For your own safety, as well as the safety of passengers and other drivers, you should never talk or text on a mobile phone while operating a moving vehicle. If you need to make a call or send a text, park in a safe place before doing so.

UPDATE (October 2):

The man who was injured yesterday in a construction accident in Sparks has died.

Michael Ray Mathews (64) of Freeland was operating a mini-steamroller, flattening out a dirt pile when part of the dirt pile collapsed. This caused the mini-steamroller to roll over, trapping Mathews. Another worker at the site used a bobcat to lift the mini-steamroller up so that Mathews could be removed from under it. Mathews was taken to St. Joseph’s Medical Center where he later died.

An investigator with Maryland Occupational Safety and Health responded to the scene and began an investigation.

Original release (October 1):
