Prince Georges County, MD Garbage Truck Accident Route 410

It's not clear exactly who the victim was, if they were working with the truck, or how this accident even happened. With all of the complex hurdles surrounding work accidents, not to mention the restrictive standards of Contributory Negligence in Maryland, getting clear answers will no doubt be crucial in understanding what can be done for the victim's loved ones. Was this a work accident? Was the victim a pedestrian minding their business? Was it the driver? Did the truck overturn due to operator error, or was there a collision? Maybe authorities are just withholding information until they know more, but perhaps this is a sign the crash needs to be handled by more experienced investigators.
