Turnpike accident leaves loved ones searching for answers

According to recently published news reports, two men were recently killed in a fiery turnpike accident in South New Jersey.

One man was a 20-year-old resident of Brick Township. The other was a 21-year-old resident of Point Pleasant Beach. A third man who was in the vehicle was injured.

New Jersey State Police said that the Volkswagen Passat carrying the three men was at a stop when it was rear ended by a Toyota sedan. The impact of the accident pushed the Passat into a Toyota minivan that was also stopped. Subsequently, the Passat caught fire, eventually killing two of the three men.

Two of the men recently formed a band, with their first album released this past July. A friend of the group added the following with respect to the three men:

"Everyone getting together, it fit so perfectly. No one was out of place. Everyone was so connected to everyone else."

Another friend echoed this sentiment, posting on Facebook:

"You two were such a huge part of my life and it all just changed in the blink of an eye with no warning, you will never be forgotten."

Unfortunately, there is nothing the three men could have done in order to avoid trouble. They were stopped on the turnpike when another driver struck them from behind.

As a driver, you never know when another person will make a poor decision that leads to an accident. If this happens, immediate medical care is of utmost importance. From there, the victims and their family can decide which steps to take next.
