Head-on collision on unfinished Route 565

A Sussex, New Jersey, driver was listed in critical condition while her three passengers suffered injuries after a head-on collision on Route 565. The woman was headed north on the roadway when a Mitsubishi Lancer traveling in the southbound lane crossed over into oncoming traffic. All four people were transported for medical treatment when emergency service vehicles arrived on the scene.

The driver and single occupant of the Mitsubishi also sustained injuries and was taken to a medical facility for treatment. At the time of early reporting, one passenger had been released. Another individual reportedly sustained a broken leg but was later deemed to be in good condition. The female driver and third passenger also hospitalized. Reports did not indicate that any of the vehicle occupants were related.

County officials report that the roadway on which the accident occurred was undergoing resurfacing and lacked typical markings. The project had been delayed due to equipment failure. There was also no indication that warning signs were present. Charges had not been filed in connection with the collision.

Although criminal charges have yet to be filed in this particular incident, those seriously injured in a car accident may still find ample evidence to suggest that one party was at fault for their damages sustained as a direct result. If the driver was distracted or reckless while operating their vehicle, this may be deemed as negligence. An attorney can assist those wishing to pursue legal recourse by examining accident reconstruction reports and potential eyewitness accounts in order to determine who may be liable in a civil suit.
