Fatal Crash in New Jersey Leaves Two Dead
Sunday October 1, 2012 started out as a glorious autumn morning, with clear skies and warm weather. Sadly, for one New Jersey family, the promise of the day turned into tragedy when a New Jersey father and his son were killed in a crash when their car collided with a jeep Cherokee.
The father, age 38, and his young son, died in the crash, while the daughter, age 4, is currently hospitalized. The driver of the other car did not suffer serious injuries.
2.2 Million Injuries From Motor Vehicle Accidents in U.S.
The cause of the fatal crash is under investigation and at this point it is unclear what caused the collision. This much is known, nearly 33,000 people were killed in car crashes in 2010 in the United States and over 2.2 million people were injured in car and other motor vehicle accidents throughout the nation. Statistics show that about one in eight people who lost their lives were passengers in the automobile.
Accidents happen all the time. No matter how safe and careful of a driver you are, you cannot always control the actions of other people on the roads. Dangerous drivers are out there. Texting drivers are out there, in increasing numbers. Roadway conditions in southern New Jersey, including construction areas, can distract drivers, just enough for them to make a mistake, sometimes with tragic results.
