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.

The Mercedes was then rear-ended by an SUV. The pedestrian suffered serious injuries in the collision and was rushed to a local hospital. Tragically, she later died as a result of her injuries. The driver of the Mercedes was also taken to the hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening. Police say the accident is still under investigation.

Unfortunately, accidents like this often result in death since pedestrians are exposed to the elements and lack of protection. Although traveling by foot may be more economical, it can also be more dangerous. Drivers these days face an abundance of distractions that can take focus off of the road. New Jersey residents that have lost a loved one due to a pedestrian accident may benefit by seeking the services of an attorney. A successfully litigated wrongful death lawsuit could result in compensation to help with medical bills and end-of-life expenses.
