Man killed in New Jersey pedestrian accident

Every day throughout the state of New Jersey, drivers take to the roads in their vehicles while pedestrians make their way to their destination by foot. With so many vehicles on the road, combined with the number of people walking, the chance of an accident always exists.

According to New Jersey State Police, a 25-year-old Staten Island man was killed in a pedestrian accident during the early morning hours. An investigation turned up some of the details of the accident, noting that the man was walking on the shoulder of the road when he was struck by a 2006 Dodge Caravan.

The man suffered serious injuries as a result of the accident, and was taken to St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center for treatment. Despite the fact that he made it to the hospital, his head injury was too severe, and he passed away roughly four hours after the incident occurred.

At this time, police continue to investigate the accident as they search for additional answers. No charges have yet to be filed against the driver. Pedestrian accidents often lead to serious injury or death because the person who is walking does not have any protection between him or her and the vehicle. Furthermore, they are sometimes caught off guard.

Even though some of these accidents can be avoided by both parties paying attention, this is not always good enough. When people are killed in such an accident, their loved ones may wish to look into legal options. This is a possibility even if police have yet to file formal charges against the at-fault party.
