Four injured following a fire truck crash
New Jersey residents are well aware that various types of vehicles are constantly traveling on the roadways. When a truck accident occurs, it is common for there to be severe damage and several injured victims. The massive size of the truck often result in destruction that is equally as large.
Emergency crews recently rushed to the scene of an accident that involved a vehicle that is commonly seen rushing to an emergency, a fire truck. A collision occurred between the fire truck and a van when the fire truck was responding to a fire call. The fire truck collided with the van and jumped the curb following the crash.
Four people were injured, which included three firefighters and a civilian. All four victims were transported to the hospital for treatment and all were expected to survive.
The investigation of the accident is still ongoing. Further details surrounding the truck crash, including which party was liable, were not reported. If a person was negligent and caused this accident, they would be liable for the injuries suffered by those involved in the incident. A personal injury claim could be filed and would cover expenses such as medical bills, damages, lost wages and pain and suffering.
No matter what type of vehicle is involved, injuries, damages and even death are common when it comes to car or truck accidents. This is also true when the accident involves an emergency response vehicle. Those traveling on the roadway should be aware of emergency vehicles on the road. They tend to travel at fast speeds and may not be able to stop to avoid a collision. Drivers should stop and attempt to pull over so emergency vehicles are able to safely pass their vehicle.
