Pickup Truck Crashes into Tree in Auto Accident on Galloway NJ Road
A Mays Landing NJ man sustained serious injuries in a single-vehicle truck accident on a road in Galloway, New Jersey.
The auto accident occurred around 2:00 p.m. on Cologne Avenue in Galloway Township, NJ. The victim was behind the wheel of a Ford Ranger and traveling north on the roadway when he suddenly lost control of his motor vehicle. The truck swerved across the center lane of the road and didn’t come to a stop until it crashed into a tree located just off the other side of the roadway. The pickup truck then overturned, pinning the driver inside the vehicle.
Other motorists on the road saw the wreckage and dialed 911 to alert the Galloway Township Police Department. Galloway NJ police officers were dispatched to the scene, where they met members of the Galloway Township Ambulance Squad, AtlantiCare Paramedics, Germania Fire Department, and Pomona Fire Department. Emergency workers then removed the victim from the overturned truck.
The victim, a 30-year-old male who lives in Mays Landing NJ, was subsequently treated for his accident-related injuries. There has been no word on whether the victim required hospitalization as a result of his injuries.
It took authorities several hours to clear the debris from the roadway, requiring law enforcement to shut down the road for approximately two hours.
Given the physical injuries sustained by the driver and the significant amount of property damage, it is possible that the driver may be inclined to file a personal injury lawsuit for damages. For instance, the driver might have swerved off the road in response to another negligent motorist, or a defective auto part in the truck may have caused the car crash.
Of course, the accident victim’s chances of success in a personal injury case would be greatly enhanced by the assistance of a qualified attorney.
