Regardless of the affect, those involved may have legal recourse as a result of the accident.
Being involved in a car accident is never fun for anyone. Whether one is at fault or not, between damages sustained to one's vehicle and injuries, the repercussions can be felt both financially and physically for a long time after a wreck. Two New Jersey police officers, who were already aware of the consequences of drunk driving accidents, now know firsthand how damaging they can be.
Residents of New Jersey can attest that they spend a great deal of time in their cars. With all of that time spent driving, it seems that the occasional traffic accident is a given, if unfortunate, event of everyday life.

Many drunk driving accidents that occur can result in serious injuries or can end tragically. The man and his wife walked away unscathed, but their two daughters sustained injuries that resulted in one being flown by helicopter to a Camden medical center.
