Tragic car wreck kills 5 out of 6 family members in van

Family outings should be fun for everyone involved. The fun times shouldn't be cut short by a wreck that injures and kills innocent victims. Tragically, one family of six who was heading home to New Jersey was struck on the way home by a driver who crossed the center line, hit another car, and slammed into their van. This horrific incident killed five of the family members and left one seriously injured.

The lone survivor in the van was the wife and mother. She lost her husband and all four of her children. The youngest two were 13-year-old twin girls and the others were 17 and 20 years old. Even though she survived, the woman remains in the hospital in fair condition since the wreck on July 6.

This tragedy has led the family's community to respond in support of the surviving and grieving woman. Friends shared fond memories of the deceased victims, and the woman's brother-in-law noted that he didn't know how she was going to make it without her husband and children.

It is unclear what happened that led the driver to cross the median and end up striking two vehicles. This crash provides a harrowing reminder to all drivers that they need to give their full attention to driving at all times. Failing to do so can put others at risk of being injured or killed.

Ultimately, those who lose get injured or lose family members in serious motor vehicle wrecks have to decide how to handle the situation. Some might choose to file lawsuits for compensation for their losses and damages.
