New Jersey police officer injured in car accident

Last week, a New Jersey police officer suffered serious injuries after his police cruiser collided with another vehicle as he was responding to a police call. Both the officer and the other driver suffered serious injuries in the car accident, but they are expected to make a full recovery. The reason for the accident remains under investigation.

New Jersey woman among victims of fatal bus crash

A New Jersey woman is dead following a tragic bus accident in Virginia earlier this week. The fatal accident is one in a line of several similar crashes in New Jersey and throughout the East, again calling into question the bus companies' safety standards and the federal government's regulation of them.

Jersey Shore star causes car accident in Italy

Although many New Jersey residents (and most Americans, for that matter) do not rush to claim the stars of MTV's "Jersey Shore" as their own, it is somehow still newsworthy when one of the cast members runs into trouble with the law. This is the case with the ubiquitous Snooki, who is believed to have caused a car accident in Florence, Italy, where the cast is currently filming its fourth season of the popular reality show.

New Jersey teen mourned after fatal car crash

Members of a New Jersey high school baseball team are mourning the loss of their teammate after a fatal car accident in Lakehurst last week. According to police reports, the 17-year-old Jackson boy was killed when the vehicle in which he was a passenger collided with an SUV, ejecting him from the backseat. Two other 17-year-old baseball players were in the front seat of the car at the time of the car accident. They were treated for minor injuries and released from Community Medical Center in Toms River.

Multiple tractor-trailer crash slows New Jersey Turnpike traffic

Sara's Law will create next-of-kin registry in New Jersey

On September 24, 2007, Betty and Vic Dubinen received a call from a friend of their daughter, Sara, asking how Sara was faring after her car accident. Not knowing what the friend was talking about, the Dubinens called the police department and local hospitals. They soon learned that Sara had been in a serious car accident, that she was in critical condition, and that hospital staff had been trying to locate her parents for over an hour.

New Jersey DOT to fix dangerous interchange

The traffic congestion, merging speeds, and high car accident rates at southern New Jersey's Interstate 295 interchange at I-76 and Route 42 have been a point of contention between drivers and the New Jersey Department of Transportation for decades. Now, after years of studies and proposals, the NJDOT has pledged to fix the problem.

Fatal bus crashes may lead to increased safety standards, part two

Earlier this week, we wrote about the increased efforts of federal lawmakers and safety advocacy groups to require additional safety features in buses. The safety movement comes approximately one month after two deadly bus accidents in New Jersey and New York that took the lives of 17 bus passengers.

New Jersey woman killed at train crossing

A 19-year-old New Jersey woman was hit by a train and killed while attempting to drive across a set of railroad tracks. According to witness reports, the woman had steered her SUV around the track's lowered crossing gates when a New Jersey Coast Line train in transit from Long Beach to Bay Head approached. The train struck the vehicle, fatally injuring the woman. No one else was in the vehicle, and none of the train's 12 passengers were injured.
