New Jersey truck accident causes a potential amputation

Driving in the early morning, when it is still dark outside, can be an easier commute because not as many travelers are on the road. The potential for an easier commute not only appeals to daily travelers but can also appeal to other motorist such as semi-trucks. Those traveling in the early morning, before the sun rises, can encounter specific dangers during early morning traveling.

These specific dangers can include dependence solely on vehicle headlights, due to a lack of daylight, and potentially less alert drivers. A three vehicle truck accident recently happened to early travelers on the New Jersey Turnpike.

The recent three truck accident happened at approximately 4:00 a.m. on the New Jersey Turnpike. All three of vehicles that were involved in the accident were traveling in the southbound lane of the Turnpike. The vehicles involved were all semi-trucks with attached tractor-trailers. The specific events that caused or contributed to the accident have not been released and the three car accident remains under investigation by local law enforcement.

The accident was severe enough to close three of the southbound lanes on the Turnpike for over two hours. The section of the Turnpike reopened at approximately 6:11 a.m. One of the semi-truck drivers was taken to a local hospital for medical treatment for injuries sustained in the accident. It was reported the injured driver many require an amputation. Truck accidents can cause serious injury to those involved and can pose difficulty for those injured to receive compensation. An experienced attorney can help those injured in truck accident seek their entitled compensation.
