Fatal single-car crash adds to Thanksgiving car accidents

Thanksgiving is supposed to be a time for families across the country to get together, count their blessings and perhaps even watch some football. Regrettably, some families find it impossible to celebrate when their loved ones are injured or killed in car accidents. Two families here in New Jersey may have been looking forward to celebrating the holiday until tragedy struck that afternoon.

Sometime after 4:35 p.m., police in southern New Jersey received a call regarding a single vehicle crash. The driver, a 62-year-old man, lost control of the car on a curve. The vehicle then left the roadway and slammed into a tree.

When emergency responders arrived, they discovered that the 20-year-old passenger in the vehicle suffered fatal injuries and did not survive the crash. The driver suffered serious injuries and was transported to a hospital in the Egg Harbor Township area. The last report regarding his condition was given the day after Thanksgiving, which indicated that he was still hospitalized. His condition was reported as being critical at that time, but no indication of what injuries he suffered was given.

The on scene investigation resulted in the road being closed for about four hours. It is not yet known whether the driver will face any charges in connection with the crash and/or the death of his passenger. Fatal car accidents always come with unexpected financial losses. Even if filing a wrongful death claim is not yet the focus of the deceased passenger's family, it may soon be. A successful claim could lead to an award of monetary damages that could help alleviate the inevitable financial burden placed on a family in an unexpected and premature death of a loved one.
