New Jersey roadways are heavily congested with traffic at almost all hours of the day and night. This can make it difficult to see pedestrians, sometimes resulting in hit-and-run accidents. A recent car crash near Camden involved a car and a pedestrian in the very early morning hours.
The accident occurred on Tuckahoe Road and the victim was found there by a passerby. Another individual turned himself in to the Camden County Police as the investigation into the accident was underway. The man said he thought his car might have been involved in an accident. The car was then impounded and searched.
According to the investigation, there was evidence retrieved from the car. The evidence included some fibers and a sneaker that matched one found near the scene of the accident. The car also appeared to have sustained recent damage. The accident remains under investigation and no charges have as yet been made.
A walk along a roadway can be dangerous but few believe it will end in tragedy. Losing a loved one in such a manner in New Jersey is a shock and a horrible pain to bear. No one can turn back the clock and undo what has already occurred. However, a consultation with a personal injury attorney can provide one with information regarding what legal options may be available. A knowledgeable attorney can review the facts of the case and advise the client regarding the feasibility of bringing a civil lawsuit against the party deemed responsible for the car crash.
