New Jersey Considers Crack Down on Commuter Vans

Because of an accident that killed a child


In response to a horrific accident last month in which an 8-month old girl was killed, state Sen. Nicholas Sacco has introduced legislation to increase the oversight and regulation of commuter vans.

"Angelie's Law" (S2950) is a bill named for Angelie Paredes, of North Bergen, who was in a stroller on Boulevard East in West New York on July 30 when a commuter van struck a lamp post that fell on her.
