Fatal Car Accidents
We are saddened to hear of this fatal accident on Route 1. Unfortunately, fatal and serious car accidents often occur when large vehicles such as dump trucks and other commercial vehicles are involved in crashes. The sheer weight and size of these vehicles makes it far more likely that a crash will be more serious in nature than a crash involving two passenger vehicles. As the investigation remains ongoing, police will look to establish the actual sequence of events leading to the crash and also to determine which driver was negligent in causing the collision.
