Motor vehicle accidents: Man arrested in New Jersey

It is difficult to imagine what traffic would be like in New Jersey if there were no traffic lights. These lights help manage the flow of traffic while saving lives. Unfortunately, those who fail to obey them often cause serious, even fatal, motor vehicle accidents. A recent crash illustrates the potential outcome if drivers fail to observe them.

Reports indicate that a vehicle driven by a 74-year-old man was crossing through a New Jersey interaction at approximately 3 a.m. one morning in early November. Apparently, the 29-year-old driver of another vehicle failed to stop at a red light. As a result, the two cars reportedly collided.

Although the driver of the first vehicle was transported to the hospital, he passed away as a result of injuries suffered in the accident. The driver of the second driver is being held at the hospital for observation. He now faces criminal charges as a result of the accident, which remains under investigation.

Unfortunately, a family in New Jersey is now left unexpectedly planning the funeral of their loved one. Motor vehicle accidents caused by negligent drivers have left many families facing the same situation. Some also suffer financially as a result of medical expenses, funeral costs and loss of wages. While many drivers who cause an accident must face criminal charges, many who have lost a loved one in such a manner also pursue justice in a civil court. A successfully presented case could result in an award of damages that will both hold negligent drivers accountable for their actions as well as help victims manage the financial consequences of their loss.
