New Jersey pedestrian accident leaves 1 dead

New Jersey is an interesting state with plenty to do, but when pedestrians are on the roads, they should be aware of potential dangers from negligent drivers. Pedestrian accidents can take place when drivers aren't paying attention, have gotten behind the wheel drunk or are texting or talking on their cellphones. These small lapses in judgment can change your life in an instant, just like it did for this person who was killed on Route 3. The July 8 news stated that the crash on Route 3 left a pedestrian dead after being hit by a tractor-trailer. The accident took place near Metlife Stadium, according to the news, and delays were caused by the deadly crash. Police have been looking into this incident, but as of the report, no one is sure why the pedestrian was on the highway. It's not clear if his car had broken down or if he was there for another reason.

There have been no charges placed against the truck driver in this case. The police will have to investigate to determine why the pedestrian was in the road to begin with, and then they will need to look into the truck driver and what he was doing at the time of the crash. If negligence is at fault, charges could be placed. Your accident may not be exactly like this one, but if you've suffered injuries or lost a loved one in a pedestrian accident, you do have options. Speaking with someone who can help you look at your case and develop a plan for legal action may be a good way to start as you focus on getting your life back on track.
