1 killed, 1 suffers personal injury in New Jersey car crash

The possibility of being involved in a car accident is constantly in the back of nearly every driver's mind. Most make an effort to drive carefully in order to avoid being involved in a crash and suffering a personal injury or worse. However, there are times when the smallest mistake can cause a devastating chain reaction. New Jersey authorities responded to an accident on Route 42 that resulted in the injury of a 26-year-old man and the death of his 24-year-old girlfriend. 

As he was driving on Route 42 in Camden with his girlfriend on the afternoon of July 11, the man struck the side of a sedan with his car. He then rear-ended a tractor-trailer. Unfortunately, the smaller vehicle became stuck underneath the tractor-trailer. 

The drivers of the sedan and the semitrailer escaped injury. However, the driver of the other car was transported to a nearby hospital with moderate injuries. Sadly, his girlfriend was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash. The crash is still under investigation and no charges have been filed at this time. 

New Jersey drivers who have been involved in an accident that resulted in a personal injury or worse may be entitled to financial relief and could benefit from speaking with an attorney in their area. Any monetary amount recovered might include payment for the costs of medical care or property damages, as well as other documented financial losses. The families of victims who suffered fatal injuries in an accident may also be entitled to compensation for funeral costs and other monetary damages by pursuing a wrongful death claim.
