Traffic on New Jersey roads appears to be getting ever more congested. When trucks are added to the mix the chance of being involved in a serious truck accident increases. A recent accident involving a car and an 18-wheeler resulted in the deaths of three people and left a young boy an orphan.
Every day people go about their business in New Jersey doing such things as going to work, going to school or going to the market. These are all normal, every day activities and one does not necessarily expect anything out of the ordinary to happen. In a market near Jackson Township there was a completely unexpected truck accident.
School is back in session for everyone from kindergartners to university students in New Jersey. Among the older group, many ride bicycles to and from class. With more bicycles on the roadways, the risk of a truck accident rises exponentially. A construction vehicle was recently involved in a fatal accident with a bike rider.
Traffic during rush hour in New Jersey can involve being stuck in stop-and-go traffic. Even when traffic is moving, a driver needs to be prepared to slow down or stop. In a recent accident in New Jersey it appears that a driver of an 18 wheeler may have neglected to slow down and, in failing to do so, caused a serious truck accident.
There are an ever-increasing number of vehicles on our roadways. As the number of vehicles increases in New Jersey, the likelihood of being involved in an accident also increases. A recent truck accident on Interstate 78 serves to underscore this point.
It is spring in New Jersey. The school year is winding down and it's the season of field trips. Parents sign permission slips, say 'have a good time, behave' and send their kids off for another day at school. No one expects that their children will be involved in a horrific truck accident.
It can be intimidating for a driver in a small car to be on the road with other vehicles that are much larger. The size difference raises concerns of driver visibility and awareness of the surrounding cars whose occupants may be more likely to suffer serious injury in the event of a crash. New Jersey drivers, especially truck drivers, must be mindful of smaller vehicles on the roadway to avoid a potential truck accident.
There are many dangers when driving on the road, including encounters with larger vehicles. Many times, the visibility of a large truck is limited, posing a potential risk of a collision. When one is involved in a truck accident as a passenger in a smaller car, the probability of being seriously injured or killed increases significantly. Unfortunately, an off-duty New Jersey firefighter and one other person lost their lives in a recent tragic accident with a dump truck.
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.
Accidents between two or more vehicles often result in property damage and may also cause injuries. When a big rig is involved in such a collision, the risk of injury is often much greater and may even result in fatalities. Tragically, one person was killed in a recent New Jersey truck accident.
