Motor vehicle accidents always a threat on New Jersey Turnpike

Traffic on the New Jersey Turnpike can be heavy regardless of the time of day or night. The possibility of motor vehicle accidents is always present. A three-vehicle accident at about 3:00 on a recent Sunday morning took the life of an elderly woman.

A 73-year-old woman was driving southbound on the turnpike in a Toyota Camry. She came to a stop in the right hand lane and was struck from behind by a truck. The driver of the truck got out of his vehicle and waited with the woman for the authorities to arrive.

While they were waiting, a Jeep that was also travelling south hit the Camry and pushed it into the truck driver. The driver of the Jeep also exited his vehicle to wait for the authorities to arrive. The woman was pronounced dead at the scene, and the truck driver suffered minor injuries. There have been no charges filed, but the cause of the accident remains under investigation.

The loss of life due to motor vehicle accidents in New Jersey are always traumatic events. Such news coming in the middle of the night is one of most family's worst fears, and the shock and grief caused by such a tragedy may be overwhelming. When a family's shock and grief subside, they may wish to look for answers regarding how the accident happened and who may have been responsible. Consulting with an experienced personal injury attorney may enable them to get some answers. A knowledgeable lawyer can review the circumstances of the accident and may be able to advise the client if a civil suit against the parties deemed responsible is a possible option.
