$1 million bail set for man involved in fatal vehicle accident

A 31-year-old man who allegedly drove his SUV in the opposite direction on a South Jersey road has finally made it to court after spending almost half a year in a state prison rehab center. His appearance resulted in numerous charges in the wrongful death of two individuals and a bail set at one million dollars.

Earlier this year the man drove his Dodge Durango at 100 miles per hour in the opposite direction on a major road in the New Jersey town of Merchantville. This is when he allegedly struck a Honda Odyssey. The female driver of the Honda and her daughter died as a result of the collision. The driver of the Durango and his passenger were also injured.

Prosecutors in the case say the male driver was under the influence of PCP at the time and crossed into oncoming traffic right before the accident took place. In his appearance at the Camden County Courthouse, the driver was charged with exceeding the speed limit, two counts of death by auto and a count of aggravated assault. The judge set a bail of $1 million.

In situations where death results from a vehicle accident, the surviving family members may wish to seek compensation for expenses related to burial as well as mental anguish. Residents of New Jersey have the option of obtaining a law firm specializing in personal injury claims to help them through their tough times. Attorneys at these firms may be able to help sort through the issues of the case and work with all parties to come to a resolution. In the end they may do their best to provide the maximum compensation.
