At least three people were recently injured in a New Jersey car accident after a vehicle left the roadway and struck a pole. According to a WPVI news report, the injury accident occurred along Hurffville Road in Deptford. Officials say the driver lost control of the vehicle before it veered off the road. The driver and two passengers, all believed to be in their 20s, suffered serious injuries in the crash. It is unclear what caused the driver to lose control or if anyone will be cited for the crash.
Any time there is a single-vehicle crash there are a number of questions that investigators need to answer. What caused the vehicle to veer out of control? Was the driver speeding, drowsy, under the influence, or otherwise negligent? Did a second vehicle force the car off the roadway before leaving the scene of the crash? Was a dangerous roadway condition a factor in the accident? Did a defective auto part or mechanical malfunction contribute to the crash? Victims of single-vehicle crashes would be well advised to speak with a skilled personal injury attorney who will stay abreast of the ongoing investigation and help determine fault and liability for the crash.
