Eight People Injured, Two Die in DUI Accident

While distracted driving has quickly become a serious danger to New Jersey residents today, drunk driving continues to plague innocent people everywhere. Even with a plethora of facts and public awareness campaigns, too many drivers refuse to hand over their keys after they have been consuming alcohol. As a result, accidents keep happening that leave drivers, passengers, pedestrians and bicyclists injured or even dead unnecessarily.

One such senseless accident happened recently in New Jersey along the Grand Central Parkway. The wreck took place on a Sunday morning and left eight people injured and two people dead. One of the deceased was a 16-year-old boy who died at the scene of the crash. The other deceased person was 34 years old and he died at a hospital. The drunk driver and seven other people were hurt in the incident.

In total, the wreck included four vehicles, two of which were hit as the at-fault driver’s sport utility vehicle went across multiple lanes of traffic all heading one direction. The third vehicle was hit after the SUV moved into the oncoming lanes. That vehicle and the SUV both rolled over. The SUV driver has been charged with multiple crimes including reckless driving, driving while intoxicated, vehicular manslaughter and more.

Survivors of drunk driving accidents as well as surviving family members of those who die in these crashes may want to discuss their situations with an attorney to see how they may seek justice and compensation.
