Driver Killed in Single-Car Accident on Black Horse Pike in Monroe Township, NJ

A man involved in a single-vehicle car accident on Black Horse Pike in Monroe Township NJ died as a result of injuries sustained in the crash.

The fatal auto accident occurred around 7:00 p.m. on Black Horse Pike, also known as Route 42, in Monroe Township, New Jersey. The driver, a 25-year-old resident of Collings Lakes NJ, was behind the wheel of a 2004 Dodge Neon and traveling northbound on the highway when he approached Brookdale Boulevard. As the vehicle moved toward the intersection, the driver lost control of the car and left the roadway. The Dodge Neon came to a stop some distance off the road when it slammed into a utility pole.

Other motorists dialed 911 to alert the Monroe Township Police Department, which dispatched police officers to the scene. When Monroe Township cops got to the area of the car accident, they saw the aftermath: a mangled car with the driver trapped inside. Emergency crew members with the Monroe Township Ambulance and Rescue Squad and the Williamstown Fire Company worked quickly to remove the injured motorist from the vehicle.

PennStar 1 subsequently airlifted the victim to Cooper University Hospital in Camden, NJ, where doctors provided emergency medical treatment and tried to save the victim’s life. Tragically, the victim was later pronounced dead at the Camden medical facility.

The Monroe Township Police Department has been actively investigating the fatal accident and attempting to determine exactly what happened in the moments before the driver left the roadway. At this time, law enforcement has not yet determined precisely why the driver lost control of his car.

One thing that authorities typically consider when investigating single-vehicle accidents is whether the motorist was intoxicated or under the influence of drugs. However, a sergeant with the Monroe Township Police Department has already indicated that police do not believe the driver in this accident was drunk or high at the time of the car crash.

Another consideration in single-car accidents is whether the motor vehicle had a defective auto part, such as defective brakes, that may have led to the crash. In this case, investigators will surely want to examine the vehicle. Depending on the circumstances, a defective part could potentially be grounds for the victim’s family members to file a wrongful death lawsuit and a product liability lawsuit against the vehicle manufacturer.
