Scary Two-Car Crash in Atlantic City NJ Results in Injuries to Three People
A multi-vehicle accident on a road in Atlantic City NJ left three people with serious physical injuries.
The auto accident occurred a short time before 10:00 p.m. on Atlantic Avenue in Atlantic City, New Jersey. One of the vehicles was traveling on the road and approaching the intersection with Missouri Avenue when another car slammed into the side of the vehicle.
After the accident, Atlantic City patrol officers were sent to the scene to check on the victims and make sure the roadway was safe for other motorists. When Atlantic City NJ cops arrived at the scene of the car crash, they saw the aftermath of the accident and found at least three individuals suffering from injuries.
The accident victims were briefly treated at the scene by emergency medical responders and then taken to a nearby Atlantic City medical facility. Officials have not yet released an update on the status of the victims or provided details about their specific injuries.
While the victims were being transported to the hospital, Atlantic City police investigated the accident. Additionally, authorities had to close down part of Atlantic Avenue near the Tanger Outlets while emergency crews worked to quickly remove debris from the road. The road was eventually cleared for northbound vehicles a little more than an hour after the car accident.
One thing that remains unresolved from the scary car accident is whether personal injury lawsuits will be forthcoming. Of course, the viability of any legal action will likely depend on the precise circumstances that led to the auto accident in the first place. Under New Jersey law, a person who suffers an injury, or whose property is damaged, as a result of a negligent motorist can potentially seek compensation for their injuries, pain and suffering, property damage, and other expenses.
