Tragic Crash Kills One on Route 35 in Monmouth County, New Jersey (NJ)

November 04, 2020

MONMOUTH COUNTY, NJ- writes that a crash killed one person this week in Neptune City. Officers state that the incident involved two vehicles that collided overnight.* 

One of the drivers involved died in the collision. Please are still working to determine the cause of the tragic incident. The Serious Collision Analysis Response Team arrived at the site of the collision. 

Car crash deaths dropped nationally in 2019. Reports indicate that not only are the total number of fatal collisions down, but with an increase in miles traveled, the rate of car accident deaths per 100 million vehicle miles traveled is the second-lowest on record. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported the findings, but little analysis has been done to determine the reason for the improving numbers. Unfortunately, improvements in traffic safety are not universal. In Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina, and Florida, traffic deaths increased by two percent last year. 

It is not yet clear how the numbers for 2020 will compare to those of 2019 because traffic patterns this year changed a great deal as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. Fewer vehicles were on the road, and fewer miles are being traveled; however, it appears that drivers who are on the road are taking more risks than drivers in the past. 

One study indicates an increase in impaired driving, especially among young men on the road this year. That study found that alcohol impairment, marijuana impairment, and opioid impairment are all leading to risks for everyone on the road. Tests performed on victims killed in car crashes are showing that a higher percentage now exhibits evidence of impairment. It is also possible that more drivers are speeding because of the sparser traffic on American roads.
