3 people injured in Toms River, NJ, crash

Three people were injured in a car collision that occurred in downtown Toms River recently. A Toyota driven by a 77-year-old woman collided with a Honda being driven by an 18-year old girl. The Honda was overturned as a result of the car accident, and the two drivers, in addition to a passenger in the Toyota, were hospitalized for minor injuries. The accident caused the road to be closed for several hours, and the local police department was conducting an investigation of the accident as of this writing.

Recently, a New Jersey State Trooper from Spring Lake Heights was arrested and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol when he allegedly struck two parked cars, crashed his vehicle into a creek and then fled the scene of the accident.

Luckily, no one was injured, although one of the cars was severely damaged.

Wrongful death of the elderly an increasing problem

An increasingly common problem is the failure of hospitals to put a stop to mistreatment of elderly patients. This mistreatment can lead to the wrongful death of the elderly patient. Recently, a New Jersey woman discovered that her 93-year-old mother, a nursing home patient with Alzheimer's disease, had sustained injuries across her body. The woman's mother had broken her eye socket, cheekbone, wrist and jaw, and also had welts on her back and gashes on her left shin. The mother eventually died from her injuries. The hospital said that the mother slipped on powder in her bathroom and injured herself in a fall, but this was a claim that the daughter refused to accept. The daughter suspected abuse by the hospital's staff, but an investigation did not turn up any evidence.
