Accident kills 1, leaves 2 injured in New Jersey farmer's market

Car accidents can lead to a lot of devastation, especially if a car plows through a populated pedestrian area like in this story. A recent crash in New Jersey killed a woman and two other people who were pedestrians at a local farmer's market. A 48-year-old man was driving the vehicle that police have reported caused the incident. He has been charged with vehicular homicide as well as for leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident that resulted in death.

The accident took place around 2:12 p.m. At that time, the man drove his pickup truck off the road, through a barricade and into a group of three people. One of the people, a woman, was dragged under his vehicle for three blocks. The woman was 58 years old.

Another one of the people who was injured was a vendor. She was taken to a hospital by ambulance. She had been working at her family's stand when the truck struck her. She reportedly had to dive out of the way, but she will be fine in time.

Witnesses reported that the driver of the vehicle looked like he was in no condition to drive. His size and alleged difficulty walking could have led to the accident, a resident claimed. The investigation into the crash is ongoing at present, but police have reported that there was no initial sign of drug or alcohol use.

If this car accident is similar to yours, you may want to think about seeking compensation. Your injuries were caused in an act of negligence; you shouldn't be forced to deal with all of the consequences.
