Trucking accidents: Woman killed in hit-and-run crash

Tractor-trailers are considered to be the lifeblood of the United States economy, and rightfully so. As the economy grows, so does the need to transport goods and merchandise. Interstates and major highways across the country are heavily utilized by these large vehicles at all hours of the day. In New Jersey, truck drivers are required to have certain licenses only acquired by undergoing specialized training, but this does not prevent them from making mistakes. Since tractor-trailers are so massive, trucking accidents are more likely to be fatal.

A woman recently lost her life in an accident involving a tractor-trailer. The accident happened at night along the heavily traveled Interstate 95 near mile marker 121. According to reports, the woman was driving a southbound SUV and had just been involved in a three-car crash.

Reportedly, the woman's vehicle was disabled in the right lane when her vehicle was struck by a southbound tractor-trailer. Tragically, authorities said the woman was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. No other injuries were reported. New Jersey State Police said the driver of the tractor-trailer fled the scene. They are continuing to investigate the incident and are seeking information regarding the hit-and-run crash.

Truck drivers are behind the wheel for long periods of time, so they often suffer from exhaustion, causing them to lose focus. Families in New Jersey who have suffered injuries or loss due to negligence in trucking accidents can take legal action by consulting an experienced attorney. Damages from a successfully litigated lawsuit could be used to cover medical expenses and help families recover from a tragic accident.
