Two from high school community dead in drunk driving accident

Law Offices of James M. Curran

Two members of an area high school community perished in a recent tragic crash in New Jersey. One victim was an alumnus of the high school and the other, riding in a different car, was a rising senior of the same high school. The driver of a car that is believed to have caused the crash was allegedly intoxicated at the time of the apparent drunk driving accident.

The driver of the car was driving with a friend in the early hours of a day during the 4th of July weekend. He reportedly rear-ended a pickup truck, and all who were involved in the crash suffered serious injuries. The car’s passenger, a 29-year-old woman, was pronounced dead at the scene. A 17-year-old girl who was a passenger in the pickup was also pronounced dead at the scene. Both drivers were transported to area hospitals with serious injuries.

The driver, who was reportedly intoxicated, suffered multiple fractures, including a broken arm, a broken leg and cervical fractures. He faces charges of aggravated manslaughter, DWI and vehicular homicide. If convicted on some or all of these charges, he could face up to 10 years in prison.

The loss of a loved one in a traffic accident is a horrible pain to bear. It can be that much worse when it is believed to have been a drunk driving accident, because drunk driving is preventable. No amount of time may ease the pain, and no one can turn back time to erase the tragedy. A civil lawsuit against the party deemed responsible in New Jersey may provide compensation for medical costs, final costs and other verifiable losses.
