Deadly Fiery Crash on the NJ Turnpike

Last Tuesday morning, a black BMW slammed into the back of a tractor-trailer on the NJ Turnpike, in Woolwich Township, Gloucester County. The BMW was pinned under the tractor-trailer, and after impact, the BMW and the tractor-trailer burst into flames.

Sadly, the driver of the BMW died, but the tractor-trailer driver was not hurt. The car and tractor-trailer were severely charred as rescue crews tried to put out the fiery crash.

2 People Killed in a South Jersey Van Accident

An hour after the above accident, another deadly crash occurred in South Jersey. A van traveling on Route 55 in Franklin Township veered off the road and slammed into a tree. The driver somehow lost control of a 2003 Chevrolet van. There were 6 people in the van. The driver and one of the passengers were killed in the crash. The other 4 passengers were also injured and were in critical condition.

The van was badly damaged. The front of the van was nearly completely pushed inward.

Both accidents are under investigation.

Injured Drivers and Passengers’ Legal Options After Serious or Fatal NJ Car Accidents

Seriously injured drivers and passengers’ lives are significantly impacted after their car accidents. They often cannot work or perform their daily activities. If they suffer serious orthopedic injuries such as broken bones, their mobility is limited. Simple tasks such as grooming may become very difficult.

Families of the deceased victims are devastated by their loss.

Victims of car accidents may file NJ car accident lawsuits against the drivers at fault, and families of deceased victims may file a NJ wrongful death lawsuit. Though no amount of financial compensation from a lawsuit can ever equal the incredible loss of losing a loved one, it is oftentimes the only way families of deceased victims can get some measure of justice.

Injured victims can recover the following damages in car accident lawsuits:

  • past/future medical expenses,
  • past/future lost wages,
  • out of pocket expenses, and
  • pain and suffering.

Some of the damages families of deceased victims may recover in wrongful death lawsuits are:

  • lost earnings of the deceased person,
  • lost care, guidance, advice and support,
  • hospital expenses after death,
  • lost prospective earning capacity,
  • lost value of household chores, and
  • lost companionship.
