Multi-vehicle crash in New Jersey kills one and injures another

Residents in New Jersey often feel the constant demands that life brings. And because of that, motorists find themselves driving from place to place at all hours of the day, even during morning and evening rush hour. While traffic is a part of driving, it is also something that motorists should remain attentive during. While a driver might be compelled to check their emails, text others or even make a phone call as a means to pass the time, this action is a dangerous choice to make. Anytime a driver is not paying attention to the road or the primary task of driving, this increases the risk of causing a car accident.

While it is not clear whether distractions were to blame, a fatal multi-vehicle collision recently occurred in Camden County. According to reports, four vehicles were involved in a crash in Berlin. The impact of the crash sent two of the four vehicles into a nearby parking lot.

Emergency crews were transported to the accident site. Authorities found one of the drivers, a 72-year-old woman, was dead at the scene. Another driver suffered serious injuries and was transported to the hospital. No injuries were reported to the other two drivers, and authorities did not detail whether any injuries were caused in the parking lot.

The accident remains under investigation. Police officers have not determined the cause of the crash and have made no speculations at this time. Once complete, investigation should reveal the liable party or parties for the crash. This could help those harmed in the incident. A wrongful death claim could help loved ones of the deceased recover compensation for their losses, such as medical bills, funeral costs, loss of companionship and other related damages.
