Evesham, NJ – Pedestrian Critically Injured by Drunk Driver at Kings Grants Dr and E. Coventry Cr
Evesham, NJ (October 27, 2022) – On Tuesday, October 25th, Evesham police used a hood ornament that was left behind in a hit-and-run accident that left a 51-year-old man critically injured to find and arrest the intoxicated driver.
The pedestrian crash took place in the area of East Coventry Circle and Kings Grants Drive at about 12:40 p.m. The pedestrian was taken by ambulance to a local hospital. He is currently listed in critical but stable condition.
Using a hood emblem found at the scene, officers located the vehicle involved in the collision. Surveillance video of the area enabled them to track down the driver, a 25-year-old woman from Vineland, who was arrested less than a half-mile from the accident site.
She was charged with knowingly leaving the scene of a motor vehicle resulting in serious injury and driving while intoxicated.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Drunk Driving Injuries in New Jersey
An experienced New Jersey drunk driving accident attorney has personally witnessed just how treacherous intoxicated drivers can be. Even though driving under the influence is illegal and comes with harsh penalties, such as jail time and hefty fines, drivers who get behind the wheel after having a few too many are not the only ones affected by this criminal behavior.
Drunk drivers jeopardize the lives of other people when they choose to drive. Accidents involving drivers under the influence often involve serious or catastrophic injuries and, in some instances, are fatal. While it may be easier to prove that a drunk driver acted negligently and is, therefore, liable for your crash and subsequent injuries, these types of cases often present numerous challenges for their victims.
It is for this reason that people who are injured during their involvement in a drunk driving accident may have grounds to file a suit for their injuries and other damages.
