Old Bridge, NJ (September 19, 2022) – A man from Bergen County was killed on Monday, September 19th after his car was sideswiped by another vehicle on the Garden State Parkway. The impact sent his car flying into a guardrail which caused it to overturn.
New Jersey State Police have identified the victim as 39-year-old Gabriel Farias, a resident of Teaneck.
The collision took place at about 12:25 a.m. on the northbound side of the Garden State Parkway express roadway near mile marker 121.6 in Old Bridge.
An investigation showed that Mini Cooper and a Jeep Grand Cherokee were side-by-side, heading northbound when the crash occurred.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim, Mr. Gabriel Farias, at this time.
Sideswipe Collisions in New Jersey
Establishing negligence in a side-impact crash is usually contentious because it often devolves into finger-pointing and arguments in which each driver is completely blameless and the other is completely at fault.
This is particularly true in collisions devoid of any eyewitnesses; those instances where the only allegations regarding the events leading up to the collision come from the drivers themselves. As such, calling a respondent’s credibility into question is the linchpin in your case.
A practiced side-impact lawyer in New Jersey will efficiently execute an exhaustive inquiry of the respondent during their deposition to counter any false assertions concerning which driver failed to exercise due care. These lines of inquiry will include factors such as speed, distance, traffic control devices, time, and the layout of the intersection itself.
When people sustain injuries in crashes due to the reckless actions of other drivers, they should contact a car accident attorney from Metro Law as soon as possible to protect their rights.
