[UPDATED-3rd Pedestrian Struck] As first reported on our News Alerts, two pedestrians were struck within minutes of each other, in two separate incidents. At about 7:25 PM, Hatzolah responded to Forest Avenue and 9th Street for a woman struck by a vehicle. The woman was transported to Jersey Shore Medical Center with non life-threatening injuries.
While Hatzolah was treating the woman on Forest Avenue, a boy was struck by a vehicle at the entrance to the Brook Sports Complex on Brook Road.
The boy was treated at the scene and released. TLS-CCP/TLS-89/TLS-FY.
UPDATE: At about 11:30 PM, another pedestrian was struck in the area of 7th Street and Private way.
The man luckily only suffered minor injuries and was treated by Hatzolah and released.
My son was on scene at Ninth and Forest. A young girl was hit, not a woman. B”H the injuries did not appear to be too serious.
BTW, it was not the driver’s fault nor was it the girl’s parents’ fault for not watching her properly, so please do not start posting comments blaming them. Kids don’t always do as they’re told (neither do many adults) and accidents happen even when precautions are taken.
@Momma Thanx You are correct!
maybe we should all say a kapital of tehillim in thanks to Hashem that nothing serious happened. Reading the headlines, my stomach dropped and I was so relieved that e/o is ok. B”H!!!
Tznius rabosai!!!!! Putting down the cell phones can also help!
Enough blaming everything the tznius!!! People always doing bad things stop mixing in to peoples business and then maybe we won’t have tzoros!
#4 question how would you know??!!!???
Saying “tznius rabosai” is not going to do anything for the situation.
Perhaps it is an issue, you just need to get more creative than that to really make difference.
youre basically saying that if you dont dress properly then a little girl will get hit by a car, dont flatter yourself.
Hey, chill everyone, #4 was obviously kidding. Read the second part also!
no offense but i very often see illegals crossing in middle of the street where there is no walkway painted on the street. The law is to stop for a pedestrian crossing in a walkway in the middle of the street and i beliieve it is still illegal for someone to crross in middle of the street where there isnt a walkway. everyone use your brains
I was being 100% sarcastic! …….Just drive carefully people!
There is obviously a severe lack of motivation to drive carelessly today. As you can clearly see, only 3 people were hit on Lakewood’s roads today. This is unacceptable. I’m used to at least 16 accidents daily. Step it up people! Get on those cell phones, roll through those stop signs, illegally tailgate and cut-off that safe driver, space out and forget you’re driving while dreaming about cholent-flavored ice cream! Also, tznius.
The crossing in the middle of Rt 9 to Solomon Suits has to stop use the cross walk!
People just run out in the middle of the road what do they expect
I noticed lately since it became known that the law is you must stop for people in crosswalks….. People just walk into the street and think they have the right of way and all traffic must stop for them. I’ve seen people start crossing without even looking!!! The law is you must stop if someone is in the process of crossing not that you must stop if someone is on the sidewalk! I noticed this behavior primarily near the old little league field. Guys- stop, look both ways and if there isn’t any car approaching then cross!
No. 15 you obviously do not know the law. Whether ridiculous or not, you as the driver must stop for those attempting to cross at the crosswalk. And yes, they do have the right of way, and all traffic must stop for them. If you have a problem with the law contact your local elected officials.
its a combination of everything!
Things dont just happen for naught hashem has a reason for every thing that happens and its our duty to pick up on these little messages.
yes we have to better ourselfs,
yes we have to stop the reckless driving
yes we have to put down those phones
And yes we have to focus and concentrate on what we r doing
If # 16 is right the law is ridiculous! People start crossing into oncoming traffic at night when they can see the cars from a distance but the drivers can’t see them until they are really close. It doesn’t make a lot of sense.
why is e/o freaking out, no one was hurt! B”H!
As a driver- I must say it is scary to drive in Lakewood sometimes!!
Kids (and adults) somehow manage to pop out in blind spots right and left. Turning onto Rt 9 from south side of lake and ppl running to catch a hitch I pray that I dont hit anyone!!
Even worse… the developments where kids are running and riding freely. So many times I am ready to back out of my driveway or simply turn the corner in my area and kids come zooming behind or in front of me on their little cars, bikes or scooters with nobody there to stop them! I almost hit a boy abt 9 or so the other day as he rode his scooter right in front of my car… BH I was driving slowly and stopped in time. I gave him such a threatening look I thought he would be scared and he only laughed as if it was funny and then zoomed off on the scooter… Are we waiting for more TRAGEDIES chas veshalom!!!! Please help- I dont want to hurt anybody- kids or adults. Be safe. DO NOT let your kids ride freely on the streets or sidewalks where cars cant see them when backing out of drive ways!!!!!
one more thing… dear men in black (and ladies as seems to be the minhag here) WEAR refelctors at night so I dont hit you and kill you cuz I cant see you!
