On February 26, 2014, a jury in Camden County, New Jersey awarded $9.7 million to a motorcyclist who suffered catastrophic injuries caused by an obstructed view at a roadway intersection. The motorcyclist was traveling on Route 30 in Waterford Township when a driver pulled onto the highway from Briarcliff Road and hit him. The motorcyclist was left in a coma for six weeks, required various surgeries to repair injuries to his back, shoulder, pelvis and other areas, and also suffered a traumatic brain injury. The cause of the accident was a utility pole in the middle of the roadway that had become overgrown with vegetation and obstructed the driver’s view. Parties sued in the case included Atlantic City Electric, who owned the utility pole, the driver of the car, and Waterford Township, among others.
