I-80 Auto Accident Kills One, Injures Others

According to this article, a recent multi-vehicle auto accident near Roxbury has claimed the life of one person and resulted in injuries for several people. New Jersey State Police officials say that the accident occurred in the eastbound lanes of I-80 near mile marker 28 and involved a tractor-trailer, a car and a 15-passenger commuter van. The victims have not yet been identified, but authorities did confirm that the person who was killed was ejected from the car and thrown an undisclosed distance. The cause of the car accident in New Jersey remains under investigation.

It is still unknown how many passengers were riding in the van when the crash occurred but authorities say that the van left the road, careened down a steep embankment, and landed in the eastbound lanes of Route 46. Police investigating the accident claim that the accident caused the tractor-trailer to overturn and spill its load of steel beams across the roadway. It remains unclear whether or not the car or passenger van hit the truck or any spilled debris on the road.

Assigning liability to a multi-vehicle accident that has caused injuries or death can be complex.
