Multi-vehicle accident claims three lives

New Jersey residents can become the victims of serious injury or even fatal vehicle accidents in a variety of situations. Distracted or aggressive drivers on busy freeways, for example, can cause crashes. Drunk or speeding drivers who do not obey traffic laws and signals can also instigate collisions. Sometimes the cause of an accident is not always immediately known yet the impact can be severe.

Such is the case with a recent wreck that claimed the life of three people and injured several others. The incident occurred on a Saturday night along a stretch of Route 287. Three vehicles and two collisions were ultimately involved. The first collision took place when a Hyundai sedan hit a cattle trailer that had been pulled over to the side of the road, behind the pickup truck that was towing it. The car’s driver parked and got out of his car.

The next collision occurred when a van carrying 12 passengers plus the driver struck the driver of the car, the trailer and the guardrail. It then continued across the lanes of traffic and hit the other guardrail. The Hyundai driver, a pedestrian at the time he was hit, died at a local hospital. Two people in the van died at the accident scene, along with some of the cattle in the trailer. At least five others were taken in for treatment to either Overlook Medical Center or Robert Wood Johnson Hospital. It is yet unknown as to why either collision occurred. An investigation is underway at this time.

Cases like this illustrate how complicated some accidents can be. Multiple friends and family members are left to mourn losses and search for compensation. Talking to an attorney at these times may be helpful.
