Fatal Accident on I-695 Work Zone

Baltimore, MD. (morningsidemaryland Staff) A tragic accident in the I-695 work zone devastated a family after losing their wife and mother. According to reports, the accident occurred on June 8, 2023, in the westbound lanes of the Baltimore Beltway near the Charles Street exit. The victim was identified as 48-year-old Michelle Wilson, a passenger in a car struck by a dump truck.

A local construction company owned the dump truck, operated by one of their employees. The dump truck driver was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The cause of the accident is still under investigation, and no charges have been filed against the driver.

Family Devastated by Loss

The family of Michelle Wilson is devastated by the loss of their wife and mother. Wilson was a beloved member of her community known for her kind and caring nature. According to her family, Wilson was on her way home from work when the accident occurred.


In a statement released by the family’s attorney, they expressed their grief and anger over the tragic accident. “Michelle was a loving wife and mother taken from us too soon. This senseless and preventable tragedy destroys our family. We want answers and justice for Michelle, and we will not rest until we get them.”

The family’s attorney also expressed concern over the safety of work zones on Maryland highways. “This tragic accident highlights the dangers in work zones on our highways. We urge the state to take immediate action to improve safety measures and prevent future tragedies like this.”

The accident on I-695 has once again raised concerns about the safety of work zones on Maryland highways. According to the Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA), there were 3,553 work zone crashes in the state in 2022, resulting in 1,272 injuries and 18 fatalities.

The SHA has implemented several safety measures to address these concerns, including increased signage, reduced speed limits, and increased law enforcement presence in work zones. However, accidents like the one on I-695 highlight the need for continued vigilance and improvement in work zone safety.

In the wake of this tragedy, the family of Michelle Wilson is calling for increased accountability for companies and individuals responsible for work zone safety. “We want to see those responsible for this tragedy held accountable,” said the family’s attorney.
