Residents in New Jersey often rely on public transportation to get to their destination. Whether they are traveling to work, school, the store or home, public transportation is both affordable and easily assessable. Although there are several benefits to this form of transportation, there are some risks. Because these modes of transportation, such as a bus or a subway, do not contain safety restraints, if an accident were to occur, multiple injuries could result.

According to preliminary reports, the accident occurred on the New Jersey Turnpike at around 12:30 p.m. While en route to the Port Authority Bus Terminal, the bus was struck by a military vehicle.
