We are glad the driver did not sustain heavy injuries in this crash. We hope he recovers well from the accident. A crash involving a car and an immobile object can be very scary. The impact between a speeding car and a structure can be extreme and can result in heavy injuries. A report from the New Jersey Department of Law and Public safety says that in 2016, 603 individuals lost their lives in motor vehicle related crashes on New Jersey roadways. Authorities continue to remind drivers to observe and obey traffic laws in the are they are driving in and to be mindful of other drivers and pedestrians on the road. The use of seat belts is also of importance.
