Fatal crash on turnpike has police investigating the accident

A car accident earlier this morning between two different vehicles is being investigated by the police after one of the drivers died after the impact. A Honda Accord and a Honda CR-V collided on the New Jersey Turnpike just before 6 a.m. this morning. The 22-year-old driver of the Accord died after being taken to a hospital after the crash. A passenger in his car, another 22-year-old, suffered injuries that left him in critical condition. The 80-year-old driver of the CR-V and his passenger did not suffer injuries in the crash.

Though charges are not expected to be filed in the case, the police have not completed their investigation into the matter, and it will likely be some time before an official report is released. If they find any evidence of negligence or recklessness on the part of one of the drivers, that would be noted in the police report.

Workers' Compensation Medical Benefits

NJSA 34:15-15 controls the provision of medical benefits available to an injured worker under the New Jersey Workers' Compensation Act. This section of the statute provides that an injured employee is entitled to such medical treatment as is necessary to "cure and relieve" the injured worker from the compensable injuries. There is no definite time limit set for the medical treatment. The treatment is required to restore the function of the injured worker as completely as possible. When the authorized treating physicians determine that the injured worker has reached "maximum medical improvement" treatment generally ends.
