The Garden State Parkway sees many car accidents

The Garden State Parkway is a major roadway in New Jersey and considered one of the busiest toll highways in the country. Because of the amount of traffic it bears, numerous car accidents occur on it every year. One of those crashes recently took the lives of two people and injured two others.

The single-car accident took place sometime around 12:53 a.m. on a recent Saturday morning, which is the first time the wreck was reported. Preliminary reports indicate that the vehicle was traveling south on the parkway in the left-hand lane. Around mile marker 48.6, the driver, a 27-year-old man, somehow lost control of the vehicle.

The car went off the right side of the roadway and crashed through the guardrail. It then rolled numerous times down the embankment and came to rest in the marsh. Several hours later, the driver and one of the passengers, a 22-year-old man, were both pronounced dead at the scene. The other two passengers -- a 31-year-old man and another 22-year-old man -- survived the crash and were taken to a hospital in the area. There current conditions were not reported.

At last report, the investigation remained open. Despite this, the family of the deceased family and the two surviving passengers may exercise their rights to file wrongful death or personal injury claims in a New Jersey civil court. Should the evidence presented in court establish negligence on the part of the deceased driver, the court might consider an award of damages that are often requested in car accidents.
