Regardless of the time of year, taking to the road in New Jersey can be stressful and dangerous at times.

It is always tragic when an innocent child with no driving privileges becomes the victim of a car accident.

The relationship between the woman and the young girl is unclear at this time, even though reports refer to the automobile involved as a family vehicle.
