Motorist Killed, Possibly Decapitated in Gruesome Car Accident on Winslow Township Road

Authorities are investigating a frightening car accident that occurred on a roadway in Winslow Township NJ and that resulted in the gruesome death of the driver.

The fatal car accident occurred at the intersection of Sicklerville Road and Chews Landing. Winslow Township police received a call about a vehicle, a dark-colored Honda Accord, traveling at an extremely high rate of speed and swerving dangerously on Cross Keys, near Chews Landing Road, around 4:00 a.m. By the time Winslow NJ patrol officers arrived in the area, the driver had already crashed.

The driver of the vehicle reportedly lost control of the car, smashing into a utility pole located just off the roadway and flipping several times before finally coming to rest on a large patch of grass.

During the accident, part of the hood separated from the body of the car and the roof of the vehicle was completely smashed in.

Neighbors later spoke with police and reported hearing the sounds of tires screeching and loud “booms” as the car flipped off the roadway.

The driver of the vehicle was killed instantly in the crash. The force of the car striking the pavement and flipping caused the driver to be ejected from the vehicle. It is believed that the victim’s body may have been decapitated during the car accident, although authorities have not yet confirmed this gruesome detail.

Winslow Township police worked for hours to investigate the car accident and determine exactly what might have caused the fatal crash. Authorities eventually removed the body of the man who died in the car accident.

Investigators with the Winslow Township Police Department are still investigating the accident and trying to determine whether the driver was speeding and driving recklessly when he suddenly lost control of the motor vehicle. At this time, it has not been revealed if the driver was intoxicated at the time of the crash.

Depending on the circumstances of the accident, it is possible that the victim’s family could potentially file a wrongful death lawsuit. It may seem unlikely based on the information made available thus far, but if it is determined that the accident was caused by a defective auto part or another negligent driver on the roadway, the family members of the victim may be able to seek compensation for their loss.

Regardless of the legal implications of the tragic accident, the incident is a good reminder that motorists should remain alert and aware at all time while traveling on roadways in New Jersey.

Driver Sustained Injuries in Car Accident That Knocked Out Power in Hamilton Township, NJ

A motor vehicle accident in Hamilton Township NJ resulted in injuries to a driver and also knocked out power in the area.

The car crash occurred around 8:30 p.m. on a Friday night. The Hamilton Township Police Division received a call about a car accident on Route 33 at Paxson Avenue in Hamilton, New Jersey. Police officers and firefighters were soon dispatched to the area, where they encountered a scary accident scene.

According to authorities, the single-vehicle accident resulted in a car leaving the roadway and slamming into a utility pole. The utility pole snapped, causing power lines and wires to fall to the ground and causing a major power outage that ran from Paxson Avenue to Whitehorse-Mercerville Road in Hamilton, NJ. This was a big issue for nearby businesses, which include many restaurants and retail stores that typically stay open late for customers on Friday nights.

In addition to causing power to go down throughout the area, the car accident also prompted local law enforcement to close down Route 33 while they worked to clear the crash scene. The highway shutdown was deemed necessary because that section of the road was impassible due to the collapsed power lines.

Meanwhile, the injured driver was briefly treated at the accident scene before being transported to a nearby hospital. Shortly after the car accident, the Hamilton Township Professional Firefighters reported on its Facebook page that the severity of the driver’s injuries was not yet known.

At this time, it is unclear what might have caused the car accident. Depending on the circumstances of the crash, it’s possible that the injured driver could potentially be in a position to file a personal injury claim for damages. For example, if he swerved his vehicle in order to avoid a negligent driver on the roadway, he may be able to sue the other driver for negligence. Or if the accident was caused by a defective auto part, the injured driver may be able to file a product liability lawsuit against the manufacturer of the defective part.

Woman Sues Hamilton NJ Police Department for Causing Car Accident during Pursuit of Suspect

A woman recently filed a personal injury lawsuit against Hamilton Township, the Hamilton Police Department, and two Hamilton police officers after she was seriously injured in a car accident.

The lawsuit was filed in Mercer County Superior Court in Trenton, New Jersey. The plaintiff in the case is alleging that Hamilton police were responsible for the injuries she sustained during a motor vehicle accident in 2014.

The auto accident occurred on Gladstone Avenue in Trenton, NJ. The woman had parked a car on the side of the road and was in the process of buckling her children into the backseat when another vehicle crashed into her.

The driver of the other car was a criminal suspect being pursued by Hamilton patrol officers. The suspect was fleeing police when he lost control of his vehicle and slammed into the victim’s car, as well as a different car that was also on the roadway.

The victim sustained serious injuries in the car accident, requiring hospitalization and resulting in significant medical bills.

Now the victim is suing Hamilton Township for failing to adequately train police officers in how to pursue fleeing suspects. In her lawsuit, the plaintiff also alleges that the Hamilton NJ cops created an “unsafe and/or dangerous condition” when they pursued the suspect.

In addition to suing Hamilton NJ and the township’s employees, the victim also filed suit against the suspect who was being pursued by police at the time of the motor vehicle accident.

Depending on the evidence presented at trial, it is possible that the victim will be able to receive monetary compensation for her medical bills, in addition to compensation for the costs of the damage to her car.

Hamilton NJ Woman Dies in Fatal Car Accident on Roadway in Lawrence, New Jersey

A car accident on a Lawrence NJ road resulted in the tragic death of a woman from Hamilton, New Jersey.

The fatal auto accident occurred around 11:00 p.m. The victim, a 57-year-old Hamilton NJ woman, was driving southbound on Princeton Pike in Lawrence, New Jersey when she apparently lost control of her vehicle. The exact location of the accident was between Fackler Road and Province Line Road, with the victim reportedly veering across the opposite lane of traffic and coming to a stop just off the roadway when she hit a tree.

The Lawrence Police Department dispatched traffic officers to the scene of the single-vehicle accident after a passerby placed a 911 call to report that a vehicle had left the roadway. When Lawrence NJ patrol officers got to the scene, they discovered the victim inside her car and suffering from significant physical injuries.

Emergency responders rushed to the scene and tried to treat the woman for her injuries. They performed first aid on the victim but could not save her; she was pronounced dead at the scene of the car crash.

Investigators with the Lawrence Police Department are actively investigating the accident and trying to determine exactly what might have caused the crash. At this time, law enforcement does not suspect that the driver was intoxicated or under the influence of drugs while driving. Additionally, police believe that no other vehicles were involved in the accident.

Depending on the ultimate outcome of the investigation, it is possible that the victim’s loved ones may be able to bring a wrongful death claim in a personal injury lawsuit or a product liability lawsuit. If the fatal accident was caused by a negligent driver, a road hazard, or a defective auto part, different parties could be held liable for the victim’s tragic death.
