Recently, the families of two victims of a freight-train accident that spilled toxic chemicals in Paulsboro, New Jersey have filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the railroad company for negligently allowing the train to be derailed and spill dangerous chemicals near the plaintiffs' homes. The wrongful death suit stems from a November 2012 incident where four train tankers loaded with dangerous chemicals such as vinyl chloride derailed off of a bridge, spilling the chemicals into the waterway.
Recently, a collision between two cars on the Route 80 East in Parsippany, New Jersey, resulted in two lanes of the highway being shut down. It is unclear at this time how the car accident occurred. However, one motorist was rushed to the hospital with injuries, although it is unknown at this time how extensive the injuries are. The auto accident shut down two lanes for several hours before the road was cleared of the wreckage and normal traffic resumed.
