Maryland family perishes in car accident travelling across country

A Maryland family of four died earlier this month as a result of a car accident while moving across the country. The family, which had decided to make the move to live on the West Coast, was traveling in two separate vehicles to make the trip when the pileup occurred. The 30-year-old father was traveling in a 2010 Ford Mustang while the 28-year-old mother and the couple's two sons were in a 2007 Toyota Corolla. While on the road, a truck failed to slow down and ploughed into the back of the father's vehicle, which then pushed his wife's car under another truck in front of her vehicle. All four family members died at the scene of the pileup.
