Car Wreck Attorney Discusses Crash On Interstate 80

Troopers provided details of a crash on Interstate 80 in the Wayne area that occurred on Saturday, August 15, at about 7:54 a.m.

Car Collides With Truck

Authorities say that a 2008 Honda CRV sport utility vehicle was eastbound near Exit 53 when it ran off the roadway and on to the shoulder where it struck a parked dump truck. The driver was not in the truck at the time.

Injuries and Loss of Life

The 37-year-old male driver of the Honda from East Stroudsburg, PA, did not survive the crash, and authorities pronounced him dead at the scene. Emergency personnel transported two 14-year-old passengers to St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center. A teen from Centerreach, NY, was pronounced dead at the hospital. The other teen, from East Stroudsburg, PA, is in critical condition, according to NorthJersey.com. The deceased teen was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash, according to troopers.

Following the fatal wreck, troopers allegedly found drug paraphernalia in the car. A toxicology report regarding the motorist is pending. Although the investigation into this accident is ongoing, victims of certain traffic accidents do have recourse via civil litigation. When it is reasonable to claim that negligent conduct was a factor in a crash, it is possible for victims to seek compensation for medical expenses, lost wages and pain-and-suffering. The parties reach an agreement in many such cases without the need for a trial.
