Highway car accidents can involve multiple vehicles and victims

Most people here in New Jersey -- and elsewhere -- often feel more comfortable driving on highways since all of the traffic is moving in the same direction. This can cause drivers to become complacent and less attentive to their surroundings, which could cause a driver to lose control. On a congested highway, car accidents can involve multiple vehicles and victims depending on the intensity of the impact.

At last report, it was still unclear what caused a driver in the center lane of Route 78 to lose control of his vehicle on a recent Monday night shortly before 8 p.m. Regardless of the cause, the result was that the vehicle veered into the left lane and slammed into the back of a second vehicle. That impact shoved the second vehicle into a third.

When troopers with the New Jersey State Police arrived at the scene, they discovered that three individuals involved had suffered serious injuries. Emergency medical personnel at the scene determined that three of the injured needed to be airlifted to hospitals for treatment. One of those people was the 34-year-old driver of the first vehicle. The other two people were the 71-year-old driver of the second vehicle and his 68-year-old passenger.

The current conditions of the injured are not known. Undoubtedly, each of them is incurring significant medical costs and other financial losses seen in car accidents. The two victims from the second vehicle retain the right to file personal injury claims against those believed to be responsible for their injuries. Establishing negligence could result in an award of damages that could help with the monetary burdens brought on by this crash.
