Pedestrian struck by vehicle stuck in windshield in New Jersey

This hit-and-run-related incident is one that is a little out of the ordinary. According to a report from Nov. 14, a man from New Jersey struck a pedestrian as he was driving. At that time, the man didn't stop, and he continued driving with the pedestrian's body stuck in the car's windshield. News reports claim that the man traveled a mile before he was stopped by police.

The pedestrian who was struck by the driver, a 61-year-old man, had to be airlifted to a hospital for care due to the severity of his injuries. The driver, a 33-year-old man from Little Egg Harbor, struck the man a little before 7:00 p.m. on Route 9, and police reported that he was intoxicated at the time.

Police heard about the incident as calls came in reporting a reckless motorist on the roads. Officers then noticed the car was driving erratically and had what looked like a person on the hood of the vehicle. The 61-year-old man had to be extricated from the glass and taken to a Jersey Shore hospital. He was reportedly in critical condition and had severe lacerations.

The man who caused the accident failed a DUI test on the scene. He has been charged with leaving the scene of an accident, causing serious injury and for failing to aid the victim.

There would be no words to describe the way you'd feel after being in an accident like this one. As a victim, your rights have been violated and you've been left hurt and in pain. Once you're able to consider the next step in your case, you may want to discuss obtaining compensation from the person at fault for your injuries.
