West Berlin NJ Man Killed in Construction Accident at West Amwell Work Site

The driver of a dump truck was tragically killed in a fatal construction accident in a work zone located in West Amwell, NJ.

The truck accident occurred a short time after 10:30 a.m. at a private property along Wilson Road in West Amwell, New Jersey. According to investigators with the West Amwell Township Police Department and the Hunterdon County Prosecutor’s Office Forensic Analysis Collision Team, the victim was working on a construction project for Joseph Jingoli and Sons, Inc. The dump truck reportedly rolled down a hill and went through a field. According to witnesses, the victim ran after the truck and tried to catch it. However, the victim reportedly slipped at some point while running and the truck rolled on top of him.

The victim was a 47-year-old man who lived in West Berlin, New Jersey. Although emergency medical responders tried valiantly to save the victim, they were unable to do so. He was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident.

It has been reported that both the construction site and the dump truck are owned by Joseph Jingoli and Sons, Inc. As a result, it is very possible that the company could be held liable in a wrongful death claim filed by the victim’s family members. Of course, that would ultimately depend on the exact circumstances of the construction accident. Additionally, if it turns out that the victim was employed by the construction company and was killed while performing work-related duties, his family may be able to file a workers’ compensation claim on his behalf.
