Car accident results in serious injuries and serious charges

As roadways become increasingly crowded across the state of New Jersey, accidents seem to be occurring more frequently. With populations booming in across the state, city streets are constantly congested with traffic. Driving in heavy traffic requires constant focus and attention. However, some drivers are not always careful or focused behind the wheel. A recent car accident in Rutherford left a man with serious injuries and another driver facing serious charges.

The wrong-way crash happened during the night time hours on Route 17 in Rutherford. Authorities say a northbound driver crossed into the southbound lane and collided head-on with another driver. According to accident reports, both vehicles sustained significant damage.

Reports say that both drivers had to be extricated from their vehicles and suffered serious injuries. They were rushed to a local hospital for treatment. The driver that caused the accident by driving in the wrong lane was hit with numerous charges, police say, as heroin was also discovered inside the vehicle. The charges include possession of a controlled substance and assault by auto, as well as motor vehicle summonses for driving on the wrong side of a divided highway and reckless driving.

Accidents will continue to happen as New Jersey streets become more crowded. Automobile accidents contribute to thousands of injuries and deaths each year across the country. Victims and families of those injured or killed by no fault of their own in a car accident can take legal action . A successful claim could result in compensation to help victims and families through this difficult time.
