A truck accident in Woodbridge Township caused the death of a New Jersey man. Every day, cargo trucks transport all kinds of goods on New Jersey’s roads and highways. These trucks may be particularly dangerous when a truck collides with another vehicle. The truck driver was in the process of hauling construction site trash when the accident happened. Investigators at the scene report that the truck driver hit a curb when he veered off the road. The truck then went up an embankment and overturned. At that time, the truck collided with two cars in the adjoining lane. Both vehicles were crushed.
One of the car drivers was trapped in the vehicle because of the truck’s impact. Witnesses attempted to assist the man, b but the man later died. The other car driver and the driver of the truck suffered injuries. Both were taken to local hospitals for treatment.
The deceased driver’s death may have affected close family members. In that case, the family may discuss the filing of a wrongful death claim against the truck driver and/or his employer and its insurance company. If the claim shows that the truck driver was negligent, family members may receive financial damages to pay for expenses and funeral costs related to the victim’s accident.
