Trucking companies fight back against mandatory rest periods

Trucking regulations are hardly the topic of conversation in most Trenton homes, but a recent truck accident on the New Jersey turnpike has many people talking about truck safety. Famed comedian and actor Tracy Morgan was seriously injured when a Wal-Mart truck smashed into the back of his vehicle late last week. Another comedian in the limousine bus was killed in the crash.

Car accident statistics do not include all fatal accidents

Commonly available car accident statistics are not as accurate as we thought. Indeed, most car accident data for New Jersey and the rest of the United States only includes accidents that happened on our nation's roads. In other words, if a driver runs over and kills a person or child in his or her driveway, the death will not be included in national car accident data. Still, information and statistics are available on such accidents, and it is unsettling.

Authorities in New Jersey say that an elderly man killed a bicyclist in a tragic hit-and-run car accident.

New Jersey killed in hit-and-run car accident

There is rarely any way to predict when a specific car crash will occur. In New Jersey, car accidents happen every single day. While most people are able to walk away from a minor crash, all too often an accident results in serious injury or death. When a fatal car accident is caused by another driver's negligence, it is a seemingly senseless tragedy that sends shockwaves of sadness and regret throughout the community.

New Jersey woman suffers head injuries in car accident

New Jersey drivers must share the roads with vehicles of every shape and variety. Drivers who are operating compact cars, for example, must drive right alongside dump trucks, semi-trucks and oversized sport utility vehicles. When such a smaller vehicle collides with a larger vehicle in a car accident, the damages and injuries can be nothing short of horrific.

Avoid getting in a car accident as harsh weather hits New Jersey

In advance of the storm that hit on Feb. 13, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie announced a State of Emergency.

New Jersey car accident leaves 3 injured, exact cause unknown

Car accidents can happen on any roadway, at any time and for a number of reasons. Loss of control of the vehicle appears to be the reason for one recent car accident in New Jersey.

Authorities believe that the driver may have been attempting to avoid another accident already on the roadway, though there is no information available on this speculation.

New Jersey car accident leaves 1 dead after truck loses load

Drivers in New Jersey, and all over the world, are tasked with obeying traffic laws and being mindful of others on the roadway. Unfortunately, there are more dangers on the roadway than just reckless drivers. One recent car accident on Route 280 serves as one example of just how important it is to stay aware of what is around the vehicle whenever an individual hits the road. Additionally, it also demonstrates the importance of ensuring that anything being hauled or towed is properly secured.
