Truck overturns on passenger car and catches fire

A fatal collision between a car and a tractor-trailer truck took place on Nov. 3 at 7:30 p.m. The accident happened on New Jersey Route 21 in the town of Belleville. Three vehicles were involved in the incident and two people passed away at the scene of the wreck.

According to witnesses, the crash was triggered when a car driving on the road cut off the tractor-trailer, causing the truck to careen against the guardrail and then overturn. When the big rig truck toppled over on its side, it fell on a passenger car, trapping the occupants of the vehicle inside. Both vehicles subsequently burst into flames, but the driver of the truck was able to escape without serious injury. However, the two people inside the car died in the accident.

A third car was involved in the wreck. The driver of the third vehicle was not injured. The driver of the truck remained at the scene to attempt to render assistance. The incident was still under investigation at the time of the most recent report.

Any person who is killed in an accident may leave family members behind that depended upon them and were severely impacted by the loss of their loved one. The financial harm done by the wrongful death of their kin may be eligible for compensation from any responsible individuals or organizations. If the deceased passed away because of an accident caused by a work vehicle, then the family may choose to include the vehicle driver’s employer as a defendant in the lawsuit. A lawyer can be helpful to family members who seek to determine who bears liability for a fatal accident and how they may be added to the lawsuit.
