Pedestrian accident results in death of a woman in New Jersey

If you've ever witnessed a fatal car accident or known someone who has been through one, then you are aware of how quickly the accident can happen and result in a death. This has been true in New Jersey, where one person crossing the road has been killed by a driver.

A resident of Matawan was involved in a fatal accident, according to a report from Dec. 30. The resident was killed while crossing at an intersection, drawing questions about the safety of the roads and the condition of the driver at the time of the accident.

The story reports that the victim, a 75-year-old from Middletown, was struck as she crossed at the intersection of Harmony Road and Highway 35 north. It was around 6:10 p.m., when the accident took place, meaning that it was likely dark enough out to make it harder to see the woman.

The driver of the vehicle was a 70-year-old male from Matawan. He was uninjured by the accident, although he will have to have a blood alcohol and drug test following the accident. That is normal for any accident where someone is injured or killed, because it can help point out what caused the accident in the first place. The Middletown Police Traffic Bureau is investigating the crash, but the police have not said if they believe alcohol was a factor in the crash.

Crashes like this can be avoided, either by the driver being more aware or never getting into the car impaired. If you've suffered through an accident, make sure you speak with someone who can help you get the compensation you need while you recover from your injuries.
