However, when safety measures fail, it can cause a serious work injury or a fatal accident. Unfortunately, a young man recently fell to his death in a nearby state when a safety rail gave way while he was on the job.

Driver of 18-wheeler causes deadly accident

When traveling on a New Jersey roadway, drivers must share the road with different types of vehicles. The size of motor vehicles ranges from the two-wheel motorcycle up to the 18-wheeler. With a large range of sizes, the risk of an accident rises if drivers are unaware of their surroundings or break the traffic laws. Unfortunately, when a large vehicle collides with a smaller, the accident can cause serious injury or death.

Serious car accident possibly caused by distracted driver

As smartphones and other devices become more intertwined with daily life, the more distracted one can be. One of the many dangers faced while traveling on the road is a distracted driver. The inattentiveness of another behind a wheel can lead to serious injury or even death. To avoid an accident, New Jersey drivers should put away cellphones and any other added distractions to focus on the task of driving.
