Two killed in drunk driving accident

Law Offices of James M. Curran

One of the many risks of driving commonly forgotten is other people operating their vehicles simultaneously on the road. Drivers are unaware if other motorists are distracted, under the influence or falling asleep at the wheel. Unfortunately, the negligence of other drivers can cause harm or deadly collisions. Recently, a New Jersey elderly couple was fatally injured in a drunk driving accident.

The pair had befriended each other after losing their spouses. On the day of the accident, the couple was returning home from an early dinner on a Sunday afternoon. Unbeknown to the duo, an impaired driver was driving at the same time and ran a red light, colliding with the couple. Shortly after the collision, the 82- and 81-year-old lost their lives from their injuries.

Police arrested the 48-year-old driver at the scene after determining he was intoxicated. He will remain in custody until he appears in court for his motion hearing. Unfortunately, two families are likely continuing to grapple with the loss of their loved ones by a drunk driver. 

Though a victim may not be able to control the actions of others, he or she does have the option of how to respond to damages caused by a drunk driving accident. In the event of a death, New Jersey family members can file a wrongful death claim with the aid of an experienced attorney. Should the claim prove successful, monetary gains can bring a sense of relief after an accident as medical or end-of-life expenses accumulate.
