The holiday season is in full swing in New Jersey. With the holidays come holiday parties and an increase in the chances of encountering a driver who may be under the influence. A serious car accident happened early one recent morning that resulted in the injuries of eight people.
The holiday season is here, and while the possibility of an car crash is an ever present danger, it seems to escalate during the holiday season. Drunk drivers, hit and run drivers and distracted drivers are all present on New Jersey roadways. A hit and run car accident that ended in the death of the person who was hit has resulted in charges against the driver.
Every day, people report to workplaces in New Jersey. People did just that at a Social Security office located in Egg Harbor. At about 10:30 one morning, their work day was interrupted by a car crash that sent a car crashing into the building and through a wall, ultimately landing inside the building.
Fatal traffic accidents are a sad and tragic fact of life in New Jersey. One doesn't expect one's friends or relatives to die in a car crash on their way to their next destination. Sadly, this was the case on a recent weekend when three people died in a head-on collision.
Driving in rush hour in New Jersey can be a dangerous undertaking. People are in a hurry to get home, to an appointment or maybe to a child's sporting event. The risk of a car accident is greater in such situations. An accident recently occurred during rush hour near Randolph Township on Route 10 near Dover Chester Rd.
Bicycles are enjoying a surge in popularity in New Jersey. As more and more people are becoming aware of the benefits of exercise, bicycles are being viewed as a means to achieve it. Bicycles present a very accessible medium to exercise for almost every age group. Sadly, an increased number of bikes on the road may lead to an increased chance of being involved in a car accident.
People enjoying an evening of pizza and friendship don't expect to have their evening interrupted by a tragedy. That's just what happened at a New Jersey pizza establishment near Fredon. A little after 9 p.m. a customer came running into the restaurant saying there had been a car accident.
Summer is in full swing and there are all kinds of activities on New Jersey roads. Bicycles, motorcycles and even skateboards require drivers to exercise additional caution, especially after dark. Accidents can happen in the blink of an eye and have tragic outcomes. Such was the case in a recent car crash in Hamilton that occurred after midnight.
Wrong-way crashes can be horrific. A person driving in the right direction on a highway in New Jersey does not expect to see someone coming at them from the other direction. This happened to a young man on his way to work in Patterson at about 4:40 a.m. on Route 80 near Woodland Park. It resulted in a fatal car accident that took the life of a well-liked area shopkeeper.
When a serious accident happens in New Jersey tow truck drivers are often called upon to remove damaged vehicles. This can be a dangerous undertaking, particularly on a busy highway. That was the situation after a car accident on Route 287 near Bridgewater on a recent afternoon.
