A man was injured recently when his vehicle overturned after crashing into another vehicle. According to a news report in The Times, the car crash occurred at Princeton Avenue and Spruce Street in Trenton. The collision between the two vehicles resulted in the man being suspended upside down in his overturned car. Rescue crews were able to extricate the victim and he was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment. It does not appear that anyone else was injured in the New Jersey car crash. It is not clear what led to the collision or if the authorities intend to cite either driver for a traffic violation.
There are a number of questions that must be asked following an accident. What caused the two vehicles to collide? Did one of the motorists fail to obey a traffic control device? Did the design of the vehicle make it prone to overturning? Did safety devices in the vehicle such as airbags or seatbelts function the way they were supposed to function in the event of a crash? Did the roof collapse on the occupants? Was either motorist distracted or exceeding the speed limit? The answers to such questions may help determine who should be held civilly liable for the injuries and losses sustained by victims in the accident.
