Holidays are often the times when people travel to get together with friends and loved ones. Unfortunately, serious motor vehicle accidents can occur at pretty much any time or place. Recently, a horrific crash took the lives of two drivers and injured several others in New Jersey.
Every day, thousands of New Jersey residents commute back and forth to work, run errands and go about the daily business of living. However, though the majority of people will arrive at their destinations without incident, the danger posed by motor vehicle accidents is real. When these wrecks are fatal, the toll they take on families is often beyond comprehension.
According to family sources, a couple who was planning to marry next month will never get the opportunity to celebrate that April wedding. The woman has become the latest victim of fatal New Jersey motor vehicle accidents. In total, six vehicles were caught up in the deadly collision.
The simplest decisions can often have life-altering consequences. The choices made by others can also leave one's family changed forever. One example is the impact that motor vehicle accidents can have on the lives of New Jersey families and the heavy toll that injuries can carry -- both physically and monetarily.
Most New Jersey residents likely give little or no thought to what could happen when they make the decision to go out to run errands or travel to and fro to work. Unfortunately, motor vehicle accidents often occur with no warning and little time to react. One such crash recently claimed yet another victim.
While most people are aware of the dangers of driving while under the influence of stupefying substances, fewer people may realize that driving while tired may be as dangerous. It is estimated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that drowsy driving leads to approximately 80,000 motor vehicle accidents annually. In 2014, drowsy driving killed 846 victims in the United States.
