Head-on collision injures 5
September 17, 2014
A head-on crash that happened in Sussex, New Jersey, on Sept. 4 around 9:00 p.m. severely injured a woman who was involved in the wreck. Four other individuals, all residents of Sussex, were also harmed.
According to authorities, a Mitsubishi sedan was traveling south on Route 565 when it crossed the centerline of the road at mile marker 10.6. The Mitsubishi drove into the path of a northbound Saturn, and the two vehicles collided. The former vehicle contained four occupants, and the woman referenced earlier was driving the Saturn and had no one else in the car.
The driver of the Mitsubishi, a 21-year-old man, was transported to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Paterson by air. A 23-year-old man in the rear of the car suffered a broken leg and was airlifted to Morristown Medical Center. The other two passengers, a 20-year-old man and a 21-year old man, were also taken to Morristown Medical Center for treatment. One had been discharged as of Sept. 6. The 42-year-old woman driving the Saturn was flown to Morristown Medical Center in critical condition. Her condition had not been upgraded two days after the car accident.
A person who was hurt in an accident may choose to file a personal injury claim in civil court to pursue compensation for the harm he or she suffered. Damages can be tied to medical bills, property damage and the loss of wages and benefits that would have otherwise accrued if a victim had not been involved in the accident. Retaining an attorney may be of value to an accident victim who wishes to demonstrate the liability of another party to an accident.
