New Jersey Woman killed in car accident

Statistics show that driving is one of the most dangerous daily activities a person can do. Especially these days in crowded New Jersey cities, getting behind the wheel is definitely a risky endeavor. Drivers today are faced with consistently congested roadways and an abundance of distractions that can take focus off of the road. Distracted and/or reckless drivers coupled with heavily congested roadways is a recipe for a car accident.

Recently, a rear-end crash on the Atlantic City Expressway claimed the life of a 32-year old woman. The accident occurred in the evening hours on a busy and well traveled roadway. Reports indicate an SUV slammed into the back of a of a minivan that was stopped.

Officer suffers injuries in car accident with drunk driver

Driving while under the influence of alcohol is not only illegal, but very dangerous and reckless. Very strict laws against drunk driving exist in New Jersey and across the country, and rightfully so. Despite these laws, recent statistics say that 28 people die in alcohol related crashes every day in America, and one in every three people will be involved in a car accident with an intoxicated driver in their lifetime.

An accident in Franklinville resulted in injuries to an officer and multiple charges for an alleged drunk driver. According to reports, a Sewell woman was traveling along Route 557 in Franklinville and ran a stop sign while attempting to make a left turn. She then collided with a police car. The officer that was driving the patrol car received life-threatening injuries in the crash.

Woman killed in recent pedestrian accident

In crowded New Jersey cities these days, many commuters choose walking over driving. Not only is walking a great way to save money, but it is also very healthy. Also, traffic jams and congested roadways can be avoided by walking instead of driving. Unfortunately, walking along congested city streets is often fraught with risk. Recent statistics say that pedestrian accidents are on the rise across the state.

A recent pedestrian accident in Freehold Township fatally injured a female pedestrian. Accident reports indicate that the pedestrian was attempting to cross a busy street during the evening hours. Authorities say the pedestrian was struck in the southbound lane of the street by a Mercedes sedan.

Caution: Winter, just ahead!

While you're enjoying the beautiful fall foliage New Jersey typically has to offer, you may also be thinking ahead to the coming months, specifically, freezing temperatures and slush, snow and ice on the roads where you drive. Perhaps you have already gone through your checklist to make sure you have jumper cables, ice scrapers and flares in your car, just in case you are stranded in the dead of winter. Another thing you might want to think about as far as winter road safety is concerned is rock salt.

Many New Jersey motorists carry rock salt in their trunks. Hopefully, the roadways you regularly navigate to get to work, school or to run errands around town are well maintained by the state. If you happen to live in a more rural area, this may not be the case. Taking as many precautions as you can ahead of time and knowing where to turn for help if an accident occurs puts you one step ahead in your winter driving game.

Two teenagers killed in pedestrian accident

These days, just going out for a stroll can be a dangerous activity. The chances of accidents occurring increase drastically as roads become more crowded and congested in the state of New Jersey. The constant flow of traffic on today's roadways can present dangers to both pedestrians and drivers. With vehicles and pedestrians in such close proximity, accidents are almost inevitable. Recently, a pedestrian accident in Jersey City left two teenage boys dead and a community in mourning.

The accident occurred during the afternoon hours near a dangerous intersection. According to reports, two teenage boys were riding a bicycle along the side of the road. Allegedly, as they approached an off ramp, they were violently stuck by a car.

Alcohol a factor in recent fatal car accident

It is common knowledge that driving and alcohol don't mix. Very stringent laws exist in the state of New Jersey and across the country to help alleviate the problem of drunk driving. Despite these laws, there are drivers that choose to willingly break the law and operate a vehicle while intoxicated. Those that get behind the wheel while intoxicated not only endanger themselves, but they endanger the lives of all those around them. When alcohol is involved, the odds for a car accident increase dramatically.

A recent accident in Monroe proved to be fatal and, according to reports, alcohol was a factor in the crash. The crash occurred when a driver that was traveling north attempted to make a left turn and pulled the car into the path of a southbound SUV. Police say the driver of the SUV attempted to avoid colliding with the car but was unable to do so.

Premises liability claim filed against Lowe's after alleged fall

One certainty in an uncertain world is that accidents are going to happen. Some accidents are impossible to anticipate and thus totally unavoidable. However, some accidents can be prevented. In the state of New Jersey and across the country, property and business owners have a legal responsibility to keep their properties safe for all visitors. Taking even the most basic precautions such as maintaining property and removing hazards can go a long way in preventing accidents to patrons and visitors.

When hazards or negligent maintenance cause injury to those lawfully visiting a business or property, a premises liability claim can be filed. Recently, a lawsuit was filed against a Lowe's store in another state after a man visiting the store was allegedly injured. The man claims he fell due to unmarked hazards left on the floor. According to the lawsuit, the man slipped and fell on what he claimed to be sand left on the floor.

Pedestrian critically injured after being struck by a vehicle

For many New Jersey residents, walking is not only an economical source of transportation, but also very healthy and a great way to stay in shape. These days, pedestrians face many dangers that are lurking on and around crowded roadways. Drivers are subjected to an abundance of distractions that can take focus off of the road. Distracted and/or impaired drivers endanger the lives of all those around them, especially pedestrians. According to recent statistics, a pedestrian dies as a result of being struck by a vehicle every 1.6 hours.

A recent accident in Garfield left a pedestrian critically injured and resulted in the arrest of an allegedly impaired driver. Police were called to the scene of a reported accident during the evening hours on a recent Saturday night. Officers arrived to find an injured man lying in the street, reports say.

Woman and two children injured in car accident

Despite increased education and public awareness campaigns, driving under the influence of alcohol continues to be a problem across the state of New Jersey. Driving is a task that requires constant focus and attention. However, when alcohol is introduced, even very basic tasks become difficult, and driving becomes extremely dangerous. According to statistics, two out of three people will be involved in a drunk driving accident in their lifetime. A recent car accident involving an alleged drunk driver left a woman and two children with injuries.

According to accident reports, the crash occurred when an alleged drunk driver steered into oncoming traffic. Police say the alleged intoxicated driver was traveling north in a sedan. The sedan crossed into southbound traffic and collided with an SUV.
