North Plainfield Car Crash Results in Fatality
One person was killed in a three-car crash on Route 22 East in North Plainfield. According to a report on NJ.com, the fatal accident occurred just east of the Westervelt Avenue intersection. A 2003 Nissan Altima struck a 2006 GMC box truck and a 2010 Ford Expedition SUV, which were both stopped in traffic in the eastbound lanes.
The driver of the Altima was trapped and the front-seat passenger was transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The driver of the Altima, a 26-year-old man, was pronounced dead at the scene. No other injuries were reported and no summonses have yet been issued. The investigation is ongoing.
The actions that victims take after a car accident can be extremely important. Anyone who has been involved in a car accident would be well advised to collect as much evidence as possible from the scene. Take photographs of the vehicle positions, the roadway, and your injuries. Obtain as much information as possible including names, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, insurance information, driver’s license information, etc. Also, obtain contact information for anyone who may have witnessed the accident.
Do not talk to insurance adjusters or provide them (or anyone else) with access to your medical or financial information. It would be in your best interest to seek the counsel of an experienced New Jersey personal injury lawyer who will help you better understand your legal rights and options. Getting injured in a car accident can impose a significant physical, emotional, and financial burden – not only on victims, but also their families. During such a challenging time, it is critical that you tap all available resources and obtain the help and guidance you require to get your life back to normal.
