One person was injured in a hit-and-run accident on the Garden State Parkway in Bloomfield on April 9. The 63-year-old male victim, from Perth Amboy, had been changing a flat tire when a 43-year-old woman driving a 2014 Nissan Altima hit him.
Authorities say that an 89-year-old man was severely injured in an accident that took place on Feb. 19 around 3:12 p.m. The crash occurred when a BMW driven by an elderly woman crashed into the front of a Wendy's in Bayonne. After the accident, the man underwent surgery and was placed in the ICU at Jersey City Medical Center-Barnabas Health.
People in New Jersey who are involved in car accidents often sustain shoulder injuries. These injuries may involve the shoulder blade, collar bone or arm bone, and they can range in severity from a dislocated shoulder to a shoulder bone fracture. The soft tissue that joins shoulder bones together can also be torn when a person is in a crash.
