Motor vehicle collisions are an unfortunate regular occurrence that rarely result in a favorable situation. Often, victims suffer serious injuries or even fatalities. One New Jersey man was recently killed in a car accident with a driver who may have been negligent.
According to officials, the victim was traveling along a local road in the early morning hours when the collision occurred. A driver in another vehicle crossed the center line into oncoming traffic, striking the victim's vehicle head-on. What caused the driver to veer into oncoming traffic has yet to be determined.
Tragically, the victim was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash. The other driver and his passenger were both injured and taken to the hospital. The passenger is currently in stable condition, while the driver is listed as being in critical condition. The Piscataway Police Department and the Middlesex County Prosecutor's Office are continuing to investigate the collision.
It can be very difficult for families to cope when a loved one is killed in a car accident. Though nothing can replace a lost life, families may be able to find some solace through filing a wrongful death claim in civil court against any party believed to be responsible. These types of claims can provide monetary damages that can be used to help pay for medical bills, funeral costs and any other related expenses. Anyone who has lost a family member in a fatal accident could contact an experienced New Jersey personal injury attorney for more information and assistance.
