Tragic truck accident causes massive delays

Law Offices of James M. Curran

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.

A dump truck traveling on Interstate 78 collided with three cars at about 3 p.m. The skid marks on the road indicate the truck may have lost control and crashed through the median and so collided with cars coming in the opposite direction. The driver of one vehicle was killed. The driver of the truck and the other two vehicles suffered minor injuries.

The accident happened near Berkeley Heights and caused major disruption during the evening rush hour. The backup extended for over five miles. Drivers were stuck in traffic for up to four hours and some traffic lanes were closed for eight hours. The cause of the accident is still under investigation.

People are told to drive defensively and be prepared for the unexpected in New Jersey. While a driver may monitor the traffic going in the same direction, it is almost impossible to prepare for a truck accident that comes from the other direction on a divided highway. The shock and grief to a family and loved ones of a person lost in such an accident can be overwhelming and as the feelings of grief subside, family and loved ones may wish to find answers and possibly some closure. Talking to an experienced personal injury attorney may be of help in such a circumstance. A knowledgeable lawyer can review the situation and assist his or her client in determining if a civil suit against the parties deemed responsible is a viable option.
