A single-vehicle crash in New Jersey over Labor Day weekend sent four men to the hospital with serious injuries. The car accident reportedly occurred in the early morning hours on Sept. 5, in Camden. Police are still investigating this incident.
The accident is said to have occurred on Linden Street near Admiral Wilson Boulevard. According to investigators, it is believed that the driver of the car lost control while speeding, causing the vehicle to hit the utility poles on the side of the road. The driver and his three passengers were thrown from the car. Each of these individuals suffered serious injuries. At least one of them was reported to be in critical condition.
No further details about this incident have been released. At this time, it has not been reported if any charges will be filed in this case. Police have not indicated if any other factors, other than speeding, played a role in this incident.
A single-vehicle car accident that results in significant injuries, such as this one, can have a dramatic impact on those involved. Not only are all of these men left coping with their physical injuries, but they are likely to suffer financial damages as well. The passengers of this vehicle may be entitled to compensation for any losses sustained if negligence contributed to this incident. Personal injury claims may be filed against the driver in a New Jersey civil court. The victims may be granted monetary judgments if negligent behavior can be sufficiently established in each individually litigated case.
