Two injured in three-car accident

Early the morning of March 12, three cars collided on Grove Street in New Jersey. A 62-year-old West Deptford woman's Volkswagen Jetta was struck by a 34-year-old National Park resident in a Mitsubishi truck as the woman attempted to execute a left turn across traffic onto Railroad Avenue. The impact pushed the vehicle into oncoming traffic, where it was struck again by a Chevrolet Cobalt.

The Jetta's driver and the 35-year-old West Deptford woman driving the Cobalt were taken to Underwood Memorial Hospital following the car accidents for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. The infant son of the Cobalt's driver was also transported to the hospital but only as a precaution. The driver of the truck did not report any injuries.

The Mitsubishi truck's driver received a citation for careless driving. The other drivers were not cited.

When making a left turn without a green arrow, a person is expected to yield the right of way to oncoming traffic. If there is not time to make the turn safely, the driver must wait until the path is clear. Otherwise, the driver could be liable for any damage that results from attempting an unsafe turn. A personal injury attorney may be able to negotiate a settlement to compensate the injured parties for their medical bills and pain and suffering. Accident victims may also be entitled to reimbursement for lost wages and damage to their vehicles. If it is not possible to reach an agreement, an attorney may be able to file suit to obtain the best possible outcome.
