Pedestrian fatally struck in Wayne

The roadways in New Jersey and elsewhere can be a dangerous place. While drivers are expected to follow the rules of the road, some fail to do so. Whether it is due to distractions, recklessness, intoxication or another negligent act, other motorists, cyclists and pedestrians are put at risk. Following a fatal crash, an investigation could help reveal the cause, allowing family members to get answers to the questions they might have and understand what legal recourse is available.

During the nighttime hours of December 4, a man was fatally struck by a vehicle in Wayne. Reports indicated that a Honda SUV on Route 46 East struck the 60-year-old man. The collision took place in the area of the Ramada Inn.

Emergency crews arrived on the scene, and the man was pronounced dead soon after. The driver, a 66-year-old male, remained on the scene. At this time, the investigation is still ongoing and no charges have been filed against the motorist. Investigators have obtained traffic camera footage to help them investigate the crash.

The loss of a loved one in a traffic accident is a difficult event to cope with. Not only was it unexpected, it was likely preventable. When the negligence of a motorist is the cause of a fatal pedestrian accident or any other type of traffic incident, it is possible to seek legal recourse through a wrongful death action. This civil action will not only help establish cause and liability, but it can also assist with the recovery of damages suffered.
