Number of Fatal Car Accidents in New Jersey Declines
July 11, 2012 - Middlesex County, New Jersey - It is now the middle of the year and the numbers in terms of fatalities related to car accidents look better than last year. According to the Asbury Park Press, at this time last year, New Jersey had 291 deaths caused by car accidents. This year, the number has dropped to 262, a decrease of 10 percent. However, that number is slightly above the 256 fatalities tallied in 2010.
Middlesex County has the highest number of death so far, at 27. In central New Jersey, 53 deaths have been recorded so far, which would put it at 106 deaths for the year. This would be slightly below last year’s tally of 109.
The numbers are encouraging, but these numbers come right before one of the deadliest holidays of the year: Independence Day. Fourteen people died during the week of July 4 last year, with six of those deaths occurring just hours within each other.
