Getting into a pedestrian accident is dangerous; in fact, many times, it's deadly to those who have been hit. The combination of a vehicle traveling at high speeds with the lack of protection a body has leads to people being at risk of severe injuries and death following these accidents. When they or their families face that reality, it's important that the person at fault is held responsible.
New Jersey is an interesting state with plenty to do, but when pedestrians are on the roads, they should be aware of potential dangers from negligent drivers. Pedestrian accidents can take place when drivers aren't paying attention, have gotten behind the wheel drunk or are texting or talking on their cellphones. These small lapses in judgment can change your life in an instant, just like it did for this person who was killed on Route 3. The July 8 news stated that the crash on Route 3 left a pedestrian dead after being hit by a tractor-trailer. The accident took place near Metlife Stadium, according to the news, and delays were caused by the deadly crash. Police have been looking into this incident, but as of the report, no one is sure why the pedestrian was on the highway. It's not clear if his car had broken down or if he was there for another reason.
