Driving under the influence leads to serious car accidents

Accidents seem to be happening more and more due to the increased volume of traffic on roadways these days. Unfortunately, thousands of people are involved in automobile accidents each year. Navigating crowded roadways can be one of the most dangerous tasks in the daily lives of New Jersey citizens. Even minor accidents like fender benders can cause unwanted stress to those affected. Car accidents can be very traumatic experiences, but when alcohol is involved, the stress and trauma of the experience are magnified.

A recent accident in Millburn left two people injured and one man in handcuffs. According to police, a patrol officer allegedly witnessed the driver of a Dodge Caravan fail to maintain a lane and attempted to stop the van. Reports say the driver of the van neglected to stop and crashed into a Ford Explorer.

The driver and a passenger of the Explorer were injured in the crash. They were transported to a nearby hospital for treatment. Authorities arrested the driver of the van and charged him with assault with a vehicle and driving under the influence.

Roadways in the state of New Jersey are dangerous enough, but when impaired drivers get behind the wheel, the chances of a crash drastically increase. Alcohol slows normal brain function, impairs judgment and delays reaction time. This makes driving under the influence of alcohol not only dangerous, but incredibly irresponsible. Those injured in car accidents with impaired drivers can take legal action. A successfully litigated lawsuit could provide compensation to cover medical expenses and other financial losses.
