Ambulance-car collision leaves 1 dead

An accident between a passenger car and an ambulance in a south New Jersey town has caused the death of one man and the injury of another two. The police indicate that the incident occurred at 5 a.m. on Feb. 23. The car in question had been reported stolen at the time of the wreck.

The car was driving through the intersection of South White Horse Pike and Eversham Avenue East at a high rate of speed when it appears to have gone over the centerline and skidded in front of a passing ambulance. The ambulance, which was occupied by two people, was unable to avoid the car in time, and a serious accident occurred.

The man who was driving the allegedly stolen vehicle was taken to Stratford's Kennedy Hospital where he succumbed to his wounds and was pronounced dead. Both occupants of the ambulance were injured, but their wounds were not considered to be life threatening. The Magnolia Police Department has yet to conclude their investigation into this accident.

Car accident injuries may result in a number of expenses, including direct costs such as medical bills and indirect costs such as lost wages. If an injured person has suffered this harm because of the actions of another, then they have the right to hold them responsible and require them to pay fair and just compensation. If the person that caused the injury has passed away, then the civil suit may be filed against their estate. An attorney may be asked to represent the injured plaintiff as they attempt to identify the liable person or estate and request the appropriate amount of financial redress.
