Woman Dies in a Head-on Collision with a Concrete Mixer Truck on Route 33  in Howell Township, New Jersey

Howell, NJ – A woman was killed when her vehicle crashed into a concrete mixer truck. The incident happened on Route 33 by West Renaissance Boulevard.

According to reports, the woman was traveling westbound on Route 33 in a 2023 Mazda CX-5 when her vehicle veered across the centerline while navigating a curve in the road, leading to a collision with an eastbound concrete mixer truck.

The Mazda driver became trapped inside the vehicle, and emergency personnel pronounced her dead at the scene.

No other details have been released.

Thoughts on lane assistance technology

I am always troubled when I read about head-on collisions involving newer vehicles. In recent years, safety features like Lane Assistance technology have helped reduce the frequency of these crashes. Lane Assistance Technology assists drivers in maintaining their lanes, lowering the likelihood of dangerous crashes such as this one.

It is concerning that this accident happened in a newer vehicle that was likely equipped with lane assistance technology. If an investigation reveals that this vehicle was, in fact, equipped with lane assistance and that technology failed to keep the vehicle in its lane, the manufacturer may be responsible for this death and be required to compensate the surviving family for their loss.

Our thoughts are with the deceased’s surviving family.
