A New Jersey single-car crash critically injured a 20-year old Randolph man last week when his vehicle crashed into a utility pole, according to DailyRecord.com. Police officials say the man, who was airlifted by helicopter and his passenger, who was taken by ambulance, were being treated at nearby hospitals. The condition of the passenger was not released.
The reason for the collision is not yet known. Police are still investigating, however, there are a number of possibilities including driver distraction, driving while intoxicated, or perhaps a malfunctioning or defective vehicle part caused the vehicle to lose control. If it’s found that a defective part was the cause of the crash, the injured victim may be entitled to compensation and should speak to an auto product liability attorney as soon as possible.
