1 killed, 3 injured in work zone crash involving New Jersey men

When you're working on any kind of job, it's imperative that you're able to do so safely. Unfortunately, accidents do happen, and people often suffer injuries or lose their lives as a result.

Take, for example, these highway workers from New Jersey who had taken on work in Maryland. One of the men was killed, and two others were injured when a Jeep collided with them in a work zone on Interstate 70 east.

The 34-year-old man from New Jersey was found deceased at the scene, and two co-workers, a 43-year-old man and 44-year-old man, had to be taken to the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center, which is located in Baltimore, for treatment. A 60-year-old man, also from New Jersey and working at the scene, was uninjured and able to speak with the authorities.

The suspected at-fault driver was a 38-year-old man who was also injured in the collision. The investigators at the scene stated that they believe that the man had swerved before crashing into the Autocar work truck. They haven't determined if speed, distractions, alcohol or other causes played a role in the collision.

At the time of the crash, the work truck did have its warning lights on, and there were arrow boards posted to tell drivers about upcoming roadwork.

Situations like this one are sad because a person lost their life too soon. Others were hurt when it was totally unnecessary. If you're working and are hurt on the job, remember that you may have a right to workers' compensation as well as other personal injury claims.
