Car accidents and young people are a major concern

The loss of a young person in a senseless accident is heartbreaking. Today, one family is mourning the death of their son, and another child is in critical condition. This family is likely holding a vigil by their son's hospital bed hoping for a miracle. In New Jersey, car accidents involving young people are a major concern.

The crash occurred on Terrace Avenue in Jersey City about 2:30 p.m. Authorities reported that the boys were riding together on one bicycle when the accident happened. The impact was so great that one of the bodies was found on the other side of a fence. Police are still searching for the driver who ran away and abandoned the vehicle at the scene. The windshield was shattered, and the crash mangled the front-end of the car.

Friends and family consoled each other and spoke fondly about the boys and how they had grown up together. People spoke out asking the driver to turn themselves in to police, and neighbors claim that speed may have been a factor in the accident. Today, two families are broken because of one person's negligence.

When a tragedy such as this occurs, family, friends, and neighbors are all affected. Emotionally traumatized, these parents are planning a funeral for their child and are left with painful memories of that final day. There will be months or even years of healing for the injured child, and mountains of medical bills as well. In New Jersey, car accidents like this take their toll on everyone involved. It may be in the best interests of both families to seek the advice and guidance of a personal injury attorney.
