Vineland Man Killed in a Seven-Car Accident on Route 55

Claudio Kuzmicz of Vineland, NJ was killed as a result of a seven-car NJ car accident, apparently caused by Kuzmicz, on Route 55 close to exit 35, on Friday evening, January 16, 2009.

Police reported that Kuzmicz was heading north on Route 55 in Vineland, NJ when he lost control of his SUV. The SUV overturned, crossed the center median and landed in the southbound lanes. The automobiles driving in the southbound lanes could not avoid colliding with Kuzmicz’s vehicle, thus causing this multi-vehicle NJ car accident. Kuzmicz’s two daughters were travelling with him in his car and were taken to an area medical center for examination and treatment for neck and back injuries.

Theodore Ferrante, of Cape May, NJ was one of the drivers who crashed into Kuzmicz’s overturned SUV. He sustained head injuries and was transported to AtlantiCare Medical Center in Atlantic City, NJ in critical condition.

Route 55 in Vineland, NJ has been the scene of many fatal car accidents recently. I wonder what is causing these NJ car accidents. Route 55 is a relatively straight two lane divided highway.
