Truck crash kills beloved New Jersey man, injures wife

On behalf of Goldstein Goldstein

A community suffered a great loss after one of its beloved residents died in a tragic truck accident an hour south of Newark, New Jersey. The victim, a 67-year-old man, founded an organization that supports several charities to relieve hunger in the locality for more than 10 years.

According to police, a truck rear-ended the victim’s car and pushed it to another vehicle that was in front of it. The man died in the collision while his wife remains at a hospital after suffering serious injuries. The driver of the other car was also treated at a local hospital and released.

Police arrested the truck driver, who is in custody with a $300,000 bond. He now faces several charges, including failure to stop at a red light, reckless driving, driving under the influence, aggravated assault and death by automobile. An investigation into the incident is still underway.

A collision between a truck and another vehicle can easily result in substantial damages and injuries, or leave a victim dead. The victim and his or her family’s suffering can extend to emotional distress due to medical bills and funeral costs, as well as lost wages and other damages.

The victim may pursue a personal injury lawsuit against a negligent truck driver or trucking company and seek compensation. If the victim dies, his or her family may file a wrongful death lawsuit. Truck drivers and trucking companies may be held liable in a truck accident if their negligence results in harm to other people on the road. Truck drivers must operate their vehicle with a high standard of care. Additionally, a trucking company must hire qualified truck drivers, maintain their trucks regularly and follow trucking safety protocols. A qualified attorney can help victims address these issues and fight to protect their legal rights.
