SUV accident suit against NJ Senator results in $1.175 million settlement

New Jersey State Senator Robert Singer has agreed to pay a $1.175 million settlement to end a lawsuit filed by a woman he seriously injured in 2005.

Barbara Sara, 76 years old, was walking across East Veterans Highway when she was struck by Mr. Singer’s SUV. Ms. Sara suffered a concussion, a fractured arm, two fractured ankles and a fractured leg; she was put in critical condition and remained hospitalized for nearly four months.

This is the second such altercation for Mr. Singer. In 1991 he hit two (allegedly) intoxicated men who walked in front of his car.
