Georgia College Professor Injured in Hit and Run While on Vacation in Maryland

It can be hard enough when you get injured in an accident in your own town or state. But things can get very complicated when your injury happens out of state. If the other driver’s insurance company isn’t willing to pay your claim, you’ll have to file suit in their home state. This can be complicated and very expensive. Sadly, this may be the case for a Georgia college professor who was involved in a hit and run on New Year’s Eve.

Professor Tom Gluick, a 62-year old man from Georgia, was visiting his ex-wife in Towson, Maryland for the holidays. He was attempted to cross the street at Dulaney Valley Road and Fairmount Avenue when he was struck by a speeding vehicle. The driver of the car didn’t stop and left the professor for dead.

The victim was taken to a hospital in Baltimore where he laid unconscious and on a ventilator for days. Finally, he woke up and was able to speak to his ex-wife. She said he suffered over a dozen broken bones. He also suffered serious injuries to his ribs, wrist, face, arm and legs. He has already undergone 3 surgeries and is expected to need several more.

The cops have no information on the person who hit and almost killed Gluick. They do have a description of the vehicle. It was a 4-door, dark colored pickup truck with what appeared to have a large tool box on the back. They’re asking for information on the driver.

If the professor isn’t able to determine who caused the crash, he’ll have no choice but to file a claim under his uninsured motorist’s policy. If something like this happens to your family, call our office right away.
