Young New Jersey Man Dies From Car Accident Injuries

Posted on Oct 06, 2011

On March 17, 2011 William Ryan Steidl was hit by a car while jogging in Denville, New Jersey. The 23-year-old Randolph resident suffered significant head injuries in the New Jersey accident, but had made some progress in the months since the crash. Then, at 11 a.m. on Thursday September 15, 2011 Mr. Steidl died from his accident injuries - almost six months to the day after the car accident occurred.

Mr. Steidl's father reports that Mr. Steidl was taken to Meadowlands Hospital on Wednesday September 14, 2011 when it appeared that his head was swollen. He was transferred from Meadowlands Hospital to Overlook Medical Center where he died the next day.

The driver who hit William Ryan Steidl had already been charged with careless driving. It is unclear whether the driver will now face additional charges because of Mr. Steidl's death.

Mr. Steidl is remembered as a wonderful person who was always helping others. He is survived by both of his parents, his younger brother Evan, his grandfather August, and many friends and relatives. We express our sincere condolences to the entire Steidl family and to all those who knew and loved Ryan following his tragic death from New Jersey car accident injuries.
