Morris County car accident claims a life and injures 4

A recent car accident in Morris County claimed the life of a 28-year old Newton woman and injured four others, including a child. Auto accidents can be a very trying time for all involved in the situation, especially when families are left to cope with the loss of a loved one. There are usually many questions surrounding a car accident, and sometimes they are not easily answered. This accident was no different.

A motorist apparently lost control of her vehicle while traveling along Route 46 near Rockwood. Her sedan swerved into oncoming eastbound traffic heading and collided with a jeep. An adult passenger in the car's front seat, as well as a child sitting in a rear seat, were both injured in the accident. Thankfully, they were wearing seat belts, which probably minimized life-threatening injuries.

The car accident was so severe that it caused Route 46 in Morris County, New Jersey to close for about two hours. The occupants of the jeep seemed to fair a little better than those in the Pontiac. At first, the driver of the jeep initially declined medical treatment but was taken to an area hospital a short time later. Another occupant of the jeep was transported for medical care by ambulance. The updated medical conditions of those injured is unknown.

Unfortunately, the collision itself is only the beginning for the families connected to this tragic car accident. There are many questions surrounding the accident, and sadly enough, some may never be answered. In the days to come, insurance companies will be called, medical bills will need to be paid and the long road of physical and emotional recovery lay ahead. During these difficult days, these New Jersey families may choose to gain an understanding of their rights and responsibilities as they wade through the aftermath of a car accident.
