Driver faces manslaughter charges following fatal crash

Automobile accidents are not unheard of. In fact, most motorists in New Jersey and elsewhere drive by an accident site on a weekly or monthly basis. While many of these collisions are minor, only leaving minimal damage to vehicles, others can be severe, seriously injuring or killing occupants. The sudden loss of a loved one because of a negligent driver is a difficult event to cope with. It is also hard to deal with the aftermath of a fatal crash. The matter can be costly, making it even harder to cope with the loss one just suffered.

According to recent reports, a motorist was charged with manslaughter for an accident that killed two. Reports indicated that the crash occurred earlier this year, and a grand jury recently added the counts to the charges the 32-year-old man already faced, which are death and assault by auto.

Based on investigation, the charged motorist was driving with a suspended license and was under the influence during the early morning crash in Jersey City back in February. This crash kills a 25-year-old female and a 24-year-old female. The charged motorist and two others were injured in the crash. The motorist now faces aggravated manslaughter and has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

In addition to facing criminal charges, a motorist could also endure civil penalties following a fatal accident. The loved ones of a deceased accident victim could file a wrongful death suit in efforts to hold a motorist accountable and to recover compensation. Compensation could be used to cover losses and damages suffered from the fatal crash.
