3 injured in serious crash on Route 31 in New Jersey

Car crashes can result in minor or major injuries, and if you've been in one, you know that the physical aspect of your injuries is just part of the struggle. You may suffer from mental fatigue, stress or other issues from the crash, and that's before you start to receive high medical bills.

In most cases, people have the option of pursuing compensation from the insurance company that covers the driver who was at fault. Other times, the victim may have to sue. It's not clear what will happen in this case from April 17, but at least a few people may be seeking to recover their costs.

In Lebanon Township, New Jersey, two drivers and a passenger were injured and had to be hospitalized when they were involved in a collision on Route 31. The report indicated that it was a 2008 Ford driven by a 17-year-old making a left turn that caused the accident. He was cited for careless driving by police who assisted at the scene of the accident and then treated at the Hunterdon Medical Center.

It was the evening, around 7:46 p.m., when the teen was trying to turn left onto Van Syckles Road off Route 31. However, when he turned, he entered directly into the path of a 2007 Honda Pilot that was headed the opposite direction on Route 31. A 62-year-old man was driving the Pilot, and he and a passenger in his vehicle had to be taken to Hunterdon Medical Center for the treatment of their injuries. The injuries were reportedly minor.
