Man killed in New Jersey accident along Garden State Parkway

As a construction worker, you face dangers every day. If you work at night and on the roadways, dangerous and tired drivers are of particular concern. This case involved someone who rammed his vehicle through a construction zone; unfortunately, that left one worker injured and another dead.

A construction worker was recently killed in an accident when a car crashed into the construction site where he was working on the Garden State Parkway. Reports have shown that the 45-year-old man was struck along with a coworker. The 45-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident.

The accident took place in the early hours of the morning, around 1:19 a.m., when a 21-year-old man driving a Ford Explorer suddenly crossed over from the middle to the right lane of the highway. The reasons for why he did that are still being investigated by police.

When the man crossed into the lane, he struck the workers, construction equipment and a Ford F-250 truck. Workers at the scene were also struck with pieces from the construction equipment as the crash took place.

The second worker involved, a 60-year-old man from Rockaway, had to be taken to Bayshore Community Hospital. He had moderate injuries, but they were not described as life-threatening. The 21-year-old man was taken to Jersey Shore University Medical Center with moderate injuries as well. Charges in this case are pending.

When you're hurt or lose someone in an accident like this, you could be entitled to workers' compensation or other types of compensation. The injuries you're suffering aren't your fault, so you shouldn't have the financial burden weigh you down. Knowing your legal rights may help you see the best way to proceed if you're considering filing a lawsuit.
