Police not ruling out intoxication in fatal personal injury crash

A tragedy occurred on the New Jersey Turnpike that has left a community reeling with grief. Fatal personal injury incidents like this one often lead to extensive post-accident investigations. Preliminary investigation showed that two vehicles collided head-on, resulting in the deaths of both drivers.

The accident occurred not long after midnight on a recent Saturday. A man who was well-known locally for his work in training novice boxers was behind the wheel of a car that was, for some unknown reason, headed in the wrong direction on the highway. The 41-year-old husband and father of one child was killed on impact in the crash.

The other car was driven by a 23-year-old woman. She also was pronounced dead at the scene, and many who knew her posted messages on social media sites concerning how shocked and saddened they were to learn of her sudden, untimely death. Police say they are not yet sure what exactly caused the boxing trainer to drive his vehicle in an oncoming lane of traffic on the turnpike. They are not ruling out intoxication as a possible factor.

In fatal collisions and even personal injury accidents where victims survive their injuries, lives are often devastated due to driver negligence. One of the services a New Jersey personal injury attorney can provide is to act on behalf of a recovering victim or family member of a deceased victim to pursue restitution against any party deemed responsible for an injury or death. If the party believed negligent did survived a collision, a claim can be filed against his or her estate.
