Passing car strikes 3 teens on unmarked northwestern New Jersey road

Crosswalks are usually available on most busy New Jersey roadways. Popular intersections and those with stoplights often have crosswalks, but many others do not and pedestrians must choose where to cross.

A recent car accident injured three teenagers who were pedestrians on a New Jersey roadway.

Halloween is a day for candy, costumes and car accidents?

Do I have to be fired to suffer wrongful termination?

A number of instances of wrongful termination involve the proverbial pink slip. An official termination is not the only way that an employee can be wrongfully forced out of their job.

An 80-mile bicycle ride through New Jersey sounds like fun...if you are an enthusiastic bicyclist.

Have you ever seen a person in shock after an accident? If you haven't, the season finale of "Grey's Anatomy" did a good job of trying to tackle the different ways in which victims respond to their situation after an accident. After the initial accident, many go into a state of shock. One character in the show was seen screaming uncontrollably, another was solely focused on finding her husband, another was unaware of his own injuries and another seemed to have a super-human ability to stay awake and take care of everyone else.
