New Jersey Debris Collisions
Large pieces of debris are often visible on highways in New Jersey. Accidents caused by roadside debris can result in serious injuries or even death. These incidents are completely avoidable and are caused by the recklessness of others.
37 percent of deaths caused by roadway debris were due to swerving to avoid a hazard. This often results in the driver over-correcting and losing control of their vehicle. Debris can include littering or something that fell off the bed of a truck.
