Another Garden State Parkway accident remains under investigation
July 5, 2012
The Garden State Parkway is a busy roadway and the scene of a recent fatal car accident – shortly after the one that we wrote about in our last post. A two-vehicle car accident occurred on the New Jersey roadway over the past weekend and ended with a fatality.
The accident occurred at approximately 11 a.m. around mile marker 168 on New Jersey’s Garden State Parkway. The accident involved two vehicles. The events that led up to the accident have not been released and the accident is currently under investigation by local law enforcement. The only information that was released about the accident was that the collision caused one person to be ejected or thrown from a vehicle as a result of the collision.
The accident report did not provide information how or where the body of the person thrown from the vehicle was found. The state of the accident scene precluded investigators from immediately being able to determine if the body of the ejected person was the driver of one of the vehicles or if the body was a passenger in a car. The person who was ejected from the car was airlifted to a local hospital for medical treatment for injuries sustained from the car accident. It was reported that the person died shortly after arriving at the local hospital.
Car accidents can be terrible events, especially when the accident results in a fatality. After the investigation of the accident is complete and the facts of the accident are determined, the family of the fatally injured person may be eligible to file a wrongful death claim and seek compensation for their family member.
