Car accidents: Tragic crash claims the life of a student

Every year, thousands of people in the United States are killed or injured in traffic accidents. When it comes to highway dangers, New Jersey is no different than any other state. Roadways across the state are becoming overcrowded, resulting in more and more car accidents. The majority of accidents are very minor, but an increasing number are proving to be very serious or fatal. A recent head-on crash in Washington Township claimed the life of a teenager and injured several others.

The crash happened on Route 31 during the afternoon hours. For unknown reasons, the driver of a northbound car crossed over the center line of the highway and drove into oncoming traffic, police said. Reportedly, the car collided head-on with a southbound pickup truck.

Authorities said the driver of the pickup truck was injured and taken by ambulance to a medical center for treatment. According to reports, all three occupants of the car were seriously injured and airlifted to a hospital. Tragically, a 16-year-old passenger later succumbed to her injuries and passed away at the hospital. Reportedly, she was a sophomore at a local high school.

Understandably, serious crashes like this are extremely difficult for victims and families to endure. Due to population growth, it is likely that traffic accidents will continue to increase. Those in New Jersey who have suffered injuries or the loss of loved ones in car accidents could benefit from discussions with a legal representative. If negligence is documented, a successful lawsuit could provide much-needed financial relief to help families get through this traumatic experience.
