FREEHOLD TOWNSHIP, NJ — A pedestrian accident claimed the life of one man in Freehold Township, New Jersey on Tuesday, June 10th, 2014, according to the recent report from The Gannett App.

Justin Powell was killed when he was hit by a Hyundai Sonata for reasons currently unclear to accident investigators when he was walking along or trying to cross Route 9 around 11:30 Tuesday evening. Powell was then struck by a number of other vehicles.

The investigation is currently ongoing by officials from local agencies, along with the New Jersey Department of Transportation, and hope to release their findings at a later date.

Scene of the Accident

Pedestrian accidents all seem to boil down to one major fact, and that revolves around the victim’s positioning in the road when the accident happened. If the victim was on the sidewalk and the car hopped the curb, if the victim was in a marked crosswalk, a designated bike or pedestrian lane, or walking in the shoulder or emergency lane, the driver of the vehicle that struck them would more than likely take the brunt of the fault in the accident, but again, it all depends on how the facts materialize in the investigation.

I'm a former employee. I had brought up this exact scenario and suggested a maintenance procedure that would eliminate the possibility of this type injury. Obviously my warning went unheeded.

I was actually a couple cars back from this wreck, one of the first on the scene, and helped administer CPR on the victims. The truck driver was going way too fast, but it was actually his trailer that swung around and hit the suv, the semi-truck ended in the median.

A lot of people say smack about lawyers, but I want to say that I'm glad there is a way that people who are wronged by corporate neglect can get justice and force change. We are living in a world where corporations and govt care less than ever about common people, and I support your work. I hope I will never need your services.

Thank you for posting these accident articles on your site. At the company that I work for, e deal with monitoring construction activity and work around trenches and all sorts of construction equipment/vehicles. I sometimes wonder if construction companies have enough safety training to inform employees of how to protect themselves while on the job.
