Afternoon auto accident leaves 1 in hospital, 1 trapped

General opinions among Americans are similar regarding the times an auto accident is most likely to happen: late at night or very early in the morning. Most experts agree, reporting that the highest incidents of vehicular accidents occur after the sun sets and before it rises. However, in the case of a New Jersey auto accident, midday proved to be an unusually dangerous time.

At 4 p.m., an auto accident occurred in Washington Township, located in the south-central part of the state. At an intersection, two cars collided, leaving both drivers in serious condition. One of the victims, a female who was operating a Ford Focus, was immediately taken by life flight to a hospital.

The other victim, also a female who was driving a Chevy Cobalt, was not able to be easily extricated from her vehicle. As soon as rescuers were able to dislodge her from the driver's side, she was assisted by emergency medical technicians at the scene. After a brief period of time during which drivers were re-routed via alternative roads, the roadways where the auto accident happened were opened to regular traffic.

At present time, the specific nature of the victims' injuries have not been released to the media. Similarly, it is unclear as to which driver may have been at fault during the New Jersey afternoon auto accident. As typically occurs in these situations, an investigation will likely focus on determining which of the drivers was in the "wrong," as well as what legal implications may result from the investigation outcome.
