Chances of a Car Accident Increase on Holiday Weekends

Law Offices of James M. Curran

Police chases can be dangerous in New Jersey. There are procedures that officers follow in an attempt to reduce dangers to other drivers. A car accident can still result from a high-speed car chase. One such accident resulted in a fatality on a recent morning.

Police were in the process of pulling a car over for a moving violation when the car they were pulling over sped off. The car proceeded to go the wrong way down a one-way street where it collided with another vehicle. The impact pushed the car into a utility pole. The driver of that car was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the car has been charged in the death of the other driver. The charges include manslaughter and driving the wrong way on a one-way street. The other driver was an off-duty corrections officer who was 49 years old. The man who was driving the wrong way is being held in an area jail, pending his hearing.

The chances of a fatal car accident occurring goes up on holiday weekends in New Jersey. As more people take to the roadways, traffic becomes heavier, and the chance for an accident can increase. In addition, moving violations tend to be on the rise as people are in a hurry to reach their destination. Losing a loved one in a fatal accident is hard and can mar the memory of the last weekend of summer. No one can undo the tragedy, but a conversation with a personal injury attorney can help one to determine if a civil lawsuit against the party deemed responsible is a viable option.
