New Jersey police were recently summoned to the scene of an automobile accident in the wee hours of a Tuesday morning. When the call came in, police were told that one of the vehicles involved in the crash appeared to be on fire. First responders headed out and learned further details upon their arrival at the scene, including the fact that several people had suffered personal injury in the accident.
When police arrived at the accident site, they noticed that three separate vehicles had actually been involved in the collision. The call they had received regarding a vehicle fire seemed to coincide with smoke they saw coming from deployed airbags in one of the cars. Three people suffered injuries not considered life threatening, and they were transported to various medical facilities in the area for treatment.
The crash left a substantial amount of wreckage and debris strewn across the roadway. The area was closed to traffic for several hours while cleanup crews were brought in to do their job. It wasn't known at the time what or who may have caused the accident; thus, as is common after such incidents, an investigation was launched.
Many New Jersey accidents resulting in personal injury lead to litigation in civil court. This is because the law allows recovering victims to seek recovery for their losses when the negligence of another party or parties is deemed responsible for an accident. Anyone with questions regarding a particular incident may seek answers through consultation with an experienced injury attorney.
