Semi Truck Accident Attorney Discusses Collision of Tractor-trailer and Mini-van
A semi tractor-trailer and a mini-van collided in an accident on New Jersey Route 78 near milepost 52.2, according to a report in MyCentralJersey.com. Dispatchers received word of the accident just after 7 a.m. on Friday, April 8.
Vehicle Hit From Behind by Semi
A spokesman with the New Jersey State Police said that an eastbound tractor-trailer rear-ended a Honda Odyssey driven by a 26-year-old Dover woman. The female motorist was ejected from her vehicle at impact. The tractor-trailer overturned after the crash, although there was no report of any injury to the driver, a 44-year-old man from Arizona.
One Individual Hospitalized
Emergency personnel transported the mini-van driver to University Hospital in Newark, where she was treated for non-life threatening injuries.
The police spokesman said authorities closed all but the left lane of Route 78 following the collision, so that clean-up crews and accident investigators could complete their duties.
Although the circumstances surrounding every truck accident are unique, victims of such accidents often have recourse in the state’s civil court system. When it is reasonable to assert that negligent conduct contributed to injuries, it is often possible to seek compensation for medical expenses, pain, suffering, lost wages and other possible losses.
