New York City, NY (PRWEB) August 12, 2013
Three people, including two young children, were killed in an accident involving a tractor trailer in Lawrence, New Jersey on August 2.
According to The Times of Trenton (Woman, two young children die in crash with truck. August 3, 2013), a 30 year old woman was killed alongside a 9 year old boy and a 5 month old after the SUV they were riding in collided with a tractor trailer. The SUV became partially wedged beneath the truck, necessitating a long and complicated extrication process from rescue personnel.
According to the report, witnesses claim the driver of the tractor trailer made an illegal U-turn which precipitated the crash, but police are still reviewing the evidence.
Adnan Munawar, of Munawar & Andrews-Santillo, LLP, a New York City based law firm specializing in suits related to truck accidents, today released a statement commenting on the accident.
“This tragic loss of life could have been avoided if one or both of the parties involved had remained vigilant and obedient of the laws of the road,” said Munawar. “Accidents like this are often a result of carelessness and fatigue that lead to a failure to obey traffic safety regulations.”
Munawar went on to stress the importance of recognizing the signs of fatigue while driving long distances or late at night.
“An overworked or fatigued driver is very often an inattentive one,” said Munawar. “Truck drivers and non-commercial drivers alike need to take stock of their physical and mental condition before they head out on the road for a long journey. Otherwise, they could be held liable for damages resulting from an accident. Safety should always be the first concern of any driver.”
