East Windsor Trucking Accident Kills Driver

A man was killed and a mother and her 3-year-old daughter were injured in a crash on April 21 in East Windsor, NJ.

According to this article on NJ.com, the 52-year-old male truck driver from Middlesex Borough, NJ was driving a Freightliner truck west on Mercer Street toward Route 130 when he crossed the grass median into oncoming traffic.

The truck collided with an SUV driven by a 42-year-old woman from Lawrence, NJ. Both vehicles were forced off the road.

The article said that the truck driver was pronounced dead at the scene and that the driver of the SUV and her daughter were rushed to a nearby Hospital in New Brunswick and treated for injuries.

The trucking company could be held liable for serious injuries caused as a result of this truck accident. The driver who was injured may have rights to compensation for their losses and injuries. The owner of the truck may also be liable.

The injured victim would be well advised to consult a skilled personal injury lawyer who is experienced with truck accidents and multiple party claims.
