A crash involving a charter bus, a dump truck, and a car on the New Jersey Turnpike left several people injured. According to a news report in NJ.com, the vehicles were northbound on the Turnpike about two miles south of the Interchange 7A in Hamilton Township when the dump truck struck the car. The car in turn hit a charter bus operated by the Megabus company. The dump truck also hit the Megabus.
At least two people had to be freed from their car by firefighters. Both suffered internal and head injuries, but were reported to be in stable condition. Two others in the car suffered relatively minor injuries, officials said. The dump truck’s driver suffered a head injury and a cut to his face. Two passengers in the bus were taken to a hospital as they complained of pain. The cause of this collision is still under investigation and no summonses have been issued yet.
In cases where multiple vehicles are involved, the investigation can get extremely complex because of conflicting reports and accounts of the incident. Anyone who has been involved in such a crash would be well advised to ensure that their account of the incident gets into the police report. It would also be in the victim’s best interest not to talk to insurance adjusters or sign any type of agreement or release.
Instead, crash victims should speak with an experienced Princeton personal injury lawyer who will guide them through the claims process while protecting their legal rights every step of the way. Injured victims in such cases can seek compensation to cover medical expenses, lost wages, hospitalization, rehabilitation, and other related damages.
