Motor vehicle accidents: Fiery New Jersey crash proves fatal

While many people in New Jersey likely spent the recent holiday enjoying time with their family and friends, one family received a terrific loss as a result of a car crash. Unfortunately, motor vehicle accidents can happen at any moment, even to those who are not behind the wheel. Reports in New Jersey claim that a recent fiery crash involved a vehicle that was stopped on the shoulder of the road.

The incident happened in the afternoon. Reports indicate that a motorist had pulled over to the side of the road and was adjusting a bike. Unfortunately, witnesses say that a car veered off the highway, onto the shoulder and striking the victim.

A witness says that one of the vehicles was immediately engulfed in flames while the other had flames coming from the front. Regardless, the same witness states that he was able to assist both the driver and front seat passenger from the second car. The man adjusting the bicycle died in the collision.

It is unclear what caused the vehicle that allegedly swerved off the road to do so or if that driver, reportedly a female, will face criminal charges as a result. Regardless, the surviving family members of the deceased man have the option of filing a civil suit, as many victims -- including surviving loved ones -- of motor vehicle accidents in New Jersey have chosen to do. While a judgment in their favor will likely do little to relieve their grief over their unexpected loss, it will help them manage the financial consequences, including funeral expenses and lost wages.
