A 1999 Grand Cherokee, driven by a man in his 80s, crashed into a restaurant injuring a man and a woman who were inside. According to a report in The New Jersey Star Ledger, the car accident occurred at LouCas Restaurant on Route 27 in Edison. Officials say the Jeep crashed through a window and entered the building. A man suffered a head injury and a woman suffered hip and back injuries. The male driver and his female passenger were not injured in the crash. It is unclear what caused him to drive into the building or if he will be cited for the crash.
Any time a single vehicle accident occurs there are a number of questions that must be asked. Was the driver speeding? Was he or she driving while distracted? Did the driver suffer from a medical condition? Did the accident involve a defective auto part or a mechanical malfunction? Were any other vehicles involved?
The outcome of the investigation will affect whom the victim can hold accountable for the injuries he or she has suffered. In cases involving negligence or wrongdoing, the at-fault party can be held liable for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other related damages.
