A scary auto accident involving a truck and 11 other vehicles on U.S. Route 206 in Bordentown NJ resulted in injuries to several motorists and passengers.
The truck accident occurred on Route 206 near the Georgetown Road exit. A tractor-trailer reportedly crashed into 11 cars on the roadway.
At least one individual was subsequently transported to a local hospital so that they could receive emergency medical treatment for serious injuries. It is unclear at this time if anyone else was injured in the truck crash. The reality is that these types of multi-vehicle accidents can often result in whiplash injuries that cause severe damage to the backs, necks, and spinal cords of vehicle occupants. This is particularly harmful to the accident victims because neck and spinal cord injuries are not easy to recover from and can often require lengthy periods of costly rehabilitation.
The NJ Department of Transportation later issued a statement about the multi-vehicle accident and said that Route 206 northbound had to be closed down south of Route 130 while emergency crews worked to clear debris from the highway. This reportedly caused major delays for travelers.
At this time, few details about the truck accident have been released to the public. The Bordentown Police Department and NJ State Police are conducted a joint investigation into the accident as authorities try to determine exactly why the truck driver slammed into the other vehicles. Depending on the circumstances leading up to the collisions, it is possible that the other motorists may be able to file personal injury claims against the truck driver, and his employer, to seek compensation for their medical bills and other related expenses stemming from the auto accident.
