For many New Jersey motorists, the privilege of driving is taken seriously with careful attention paid to following the rules of the road. However, there are times when everyone may face perilous circumstances as the result of a distracted driver, inclement weather or even vehicle malfunctions. Because everyone is subject to the inherent risks when driving, it is important for drivers to do their part to protect themselves, their passengers and other motorists on the road.
In a recent incident in Parsippany, one motorist was unable to escape the injuries he or she sustained in a serious car accident. The crash involved three vehicles and occurred on Route 80 in the early morning hours. One of the vehicles involved in the crash overturned. The driver of that vehicle was killed. Authorities have not released any details about the driver's identity at this point. The incident happened around mile marker 41.2 and resulted in the closure of two westbound lanes while authorities investigated what caused the accident. This closure was effective for several hours. Information about the condition and identities of the other drivers is currently unknown.
