A multi-truck crash caused two fatalities on Wednesday afternoon in Mount Olive, New Jersey. Around 4:30 pm, the truck accident occurred on Route 80, and involved a pickup truck, a dump truck, and a box truck. Apparently, the dump truck had a tire blow-out, crossed the center median, and then struck the pickup truck and box truck, before overturning. The two victims in the multi-truck crash who were from Hackettstown, New Jersey were traveling in the pickup truck.
Oftentimes, on congested roads, one collision could lead to multiple accidents due to contributing factors like distracted driving, speeding or recklessly driving around the accident site. Motorists and passengers involved in a multi-vehicle accident may sustain injuries ranging from minor to catastrophic or potential fatalities. After a severe crash of this nature, emotional and mental distress may accompany significant recovery time, life-changing injuries, and an inability to work.
