Accident with Freightliner Truck Claims Life of man on I-78 in Greenwich Township, Warren County, New Jersey

Greenwich Township, Warren County, New Jersey – A man lost his life when his Honda CR-V collided with a Freightliner truck. The incident unfolded at 4:13 a.m. on I-78 East when the Honda CR-V hit the rear of a utility trailer parked on the highway’s right shoulder.

The Honda CR-V driver, Alejandro Reyes-Moya, sustained fatal injuries.

No other details have been provided.

Thoughts on Parked Semi Truck Accidents

A Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMSCA) report found that in 2020, there were 4,000 injuries and 55 fatal accidents due to stationary big rigs. When trucks are parked on the side of the road, people get hurt.

Truck drivers know this, trucking companies know this. That is why truck drivers should never park on the side of the road. And when they do, they should not be able to escape liability when someone is injured or killed.

This accident needs trained professionals to conduct an independent investigation to determine exactly why the truck was parked next to a lane of moving traffic. Was the driver sleeping? Did the truck break down? Was the driver taking a break? What safety steps did the driver take to ensure motorists would not hit the parked truck? Were warning triangles placed? Were flashers on? How far off the road was the truck?

Investigating these questions will help determine responsibility for this crash and ensure that the family receives the answers they deserve.

My hope is that those responsible for this crash take responsibility and that the surviving family is provided the answers and justice to which they may be entitled.
