Fatal Car Accident In New Jersey Kills Three People

Posted in Car Accidents on Monday, October 26, 2020.

Heading down the freeway, we want to make sure our family is safe and that we safely arrive wherever we are headed. Someone drunk driving can end that dream quickly. Instead of a future filled with family reunions and weddings, it’s instead filled with funerals, wakes, grief, and tragedy. The car accident attorneys at Soloff & Zervanos, P.C. want to discuss a current case in New Jersey. It is one filled with heartache and could have been completely avoided.

What Happened In This New Jersey Fatal Car Accident?

Priscilla Cortez pleads guilty to three counts of homicide while drunk driving and a litany of other traffic offenses.

According to police, Cortez was driving south on northbound I-195 when she crashed into a vehicle. Three people died at the scene, and all of them left behind children who will never see them again. Cortez was driving over 65 mph, and the posted speed was 55 mph. She was driving the wrong way down the interstate, hitting the vehicle head-on.

If Cortez had simply stayed home, called an Uber, or called a friend for a ride, children would still have their mother and father. The families are now devastated and have to deal with the aftermath.
