The investigation continues into an accident that snarled traffic on westbound Route 78 for hours recently. The New Jersey Department of Transportation was forced to close the express and local lanes while a fuel fire was put out and the on scene investigation was conducted. One person died in the truck vs. car accident and another suffered critical injuries.
Not all work-related injuries occur on a job site or in a building. Many such accidents occur on the country's roadways. For example, the New Jersey Turnpike was recently the scene of an on-the-job accident involving three truckers.
It may be safe to say that no one ever expects to be involved in an accident. Most New Jersey residents are pretty careful to do what they can to avoid a car accident, but sometimes it does still happen. The reasons are not always clear or even known at the beginning of an investigation.
One of many drivers biggest fears is not being able to avoid a crash. The thought of possibly being involved in a car accident may be a horrifying thought for some. A recent crash that took place on New Jersey's Atlantic City Expressway shortly after 7 a.m. could underscore those fears.
New Jersey readers have likely already heard about celebrity Tracy Morgan being involved in a recent car accident. The comedian was seriously injured in an auto accident on the New Jersey Turnpike. The accident killed another person who was involved and injured several others.
In every city across New Jersey, emergency vehicles have the right-of-way. At intersections, drivers are required to pull to the right or stop to let firetrucks, police cruisers and ambulances pass safely. However, not everyone abides by these laws and could possibly cause a car accident because of it.
Most drivers already know that it becomes more difficult to see potential hazards and dangers after the sun goes down. Driving after dark is especially dangerous because of what might not be readily seen until it is too late. New Jersey drivers know that they must take extra care at night in order to avoid everyday hazards that can cause a car accident.
As many New Jersey residents already realize, an accident can happen at any time. There is, sadly, no way to predict when or how a car accident may take place. Even for the most trained and experienced of drivers, any crash can become fatal.
Many businesses and municipal services implement strict guidelines and procedures to ensure their employees are able to work in a safe environment. Unfortunately, accidents can still happen in almost any profession. Three New Jersey law enforcement officials recently suffered work-related injuries while on duty in Seaside Park.
