A New Jersey man suffered serious injury Tuesday after he was hit by a tractor trailer while he was riding a motorcycle.
The accident occurred just before 8 a.m. as Joseph Granuzzo, 47, rode his motorcycle in Wharton, New Jersey. A tractor trailer, driven by David Zack, 30, crashed into the motorcycle as it drove on the North Street Extension.
Granuzzo was airlifted to a local hospital with serious leg injuries. Zack was uninjured in the tractor trailer accident.
Zack was issued a summons by the police for careless driving.
Since the truck driver was issued a summons by the investigating officer, it would appear likely that he is at fault for Granuzzo’s injuries. If a truck accident lawyer is called in to do further investigation, he may be able to recover damages for Granuzzo. Just the opinion of the investigating officer is not enough, however, and an experienced personal injury lawyer will collect more data such as the truck driver’s log books and any accident reconstruction reports.
