Teen driver charged in crash that killed 3

Three people were killed in an accident that occurred at approximately 1 a.m., in Lawrence, New Jersey, on Interstate 95. Prosecutors say that the 19-year-old male driver told police officers that he had been drinking before the accident and had finished three or four beers. He is currently charged with two counts of causing death by a vehicle, and a single charge of driving in a manner that resulted in serious bodily injury. It is anticipated that the latter charge will be increased, as a result of the third passenger subsequently dying of injuries in the hospital.

Lawsuit filed over death of 12-year-old girl

A year ago, a 12-year-old girl in New Jersey was killed by a 15-year-old boy who police say choked her. The youth later pleaded guilty to the killing and is now incarcerated. Now her father in New Jersey has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the boy's parents contending that they must have done something wrong in raising their child that caused him to carry out the attack.
