One killed in dump truck crash in New Jersey

Roadways can be a dangerous place. Motor vehicles of various sizes are traveling at high rates of speed. Mix in some drivers that are not attentive because they are on their phone, are speeding, fatigued or even under the influence of alcohol or drugs. This can make roadways extremely dangerous and difficult to evade an accident if a negligent driver were to come into the path of another vehicle.

According to recent reports, one person was killed in a New Jersey automobile collision that involved a dump truck and a passenger vehicle. Preliminary reports indicate that the fatal crash occurred in Berkeley Heights on Interstate 78 going westbound. Authorities believe tat the collision occurred when a dump truck traveled through a barrier, colliding with a car heading in the opposite direction.

Emergency crews responded to the incident, reporting one fatality. It is not clear if the other driver was injured in the crash. Investigation remains ongoing, and law enforcement has not speculated the cause at this time. Once investigation is complete, authorities should be able to establish cause. This information could help with the determination of liability.

Following a fatal crash, surviving loved ones might have legal recourses. They could initiate a wrongful death suit, using the information from police reports, additional investigation, witness accounts and medical records to prove cause and fault.

Nothing can prepare you for the emotional devastation and life impacts the death of a loved one can cause. When a life is suddenly taken away in an accident caused by a negligent party, loved ones are left with many questions. However, there are ways to get answers to these questions. A wrongful death suit can help establish cause and liability. It can also assist family members with holding the party at fault accountable for losses suffered by seeking compensation for damages.
