PHOTO: Four Bachurim (teens) are lucky to be alive today after the minivan they were driving in late last night spun out of control and overturned.
Officials tell TLS the boys were traveling on South Lake Drive just before midnight when the driver lost control and the vehicle overturned. The van then reportedly struck either a tree or a rock causing it to flip back over on its wheels. No other vehicles were involved.
Multiple Hatzolah BLS and ALS units responded to the scene and found the Bachurim bruised and scraped and covered in dirt, but miraculously not severely injured.
They were trasnported by Hatzolah to KMC. (TLS-46/TLS-CCP/TLS-HTH).
sad bumper sticker: PRAY FOR ME, I DRIVE IN LAKEWOOD
of course you lose control on south lake drive. the curves very clearly tell you to go 15-20, but these reckless teens like to live on the wild side and go 40
New bumper sticker for bochurim : pray for me – I DRIVE !!!
#1 the bumper sticker should read “pray for me i drive in lakewood with poeple how have bumper stickers that say PRAY FOR ME, I DRIVE IN LAKEWOOD”
#2 where do you get the hate to say they were going 40 its called an accident not a on purpose.
South Lake drive at night with the new obstcale course created by trees and Leaves from sandy is a nightmare. I was terrifed driving last MS 10 miles below the speed limit
Don’t worry. The township has let people know that the leaves and fallen trees will definitely be taken care of before July 4. Have u realized that even the regular leaves pick up did not happen this year? It is extremely dangerous to drive or park. It’s unbelievable. Just hire outside contractors and get rid of everything once and for all. Enough of this incompetence already. It’s dangerous!
again, if you weren’t there, you don’t know how fast they were going, or what happened . . .I agree that the driving around Lakewood is a chilul Hashem of the highest nature, but you don’t know the specifics here, so shut it
It’s not called an accident anymore, the state now sees them as crashes because someone did something to cause it too happen. Same thing here the driver of this vehicle did something to cause this vehicle to CRASH!!!!
Teens driving at midnight without an adult!? Good signal to revoke their driving permits. A minivan can’t overturn at the speed limit on south lake drive, he was speeding for sure!
Many drivers of all persuasions consistently exceed the speed limit on South Lake Drive making it a dangerous thorofare every day and night of the week. As a resident of the area, I’m especially careful when crossing to the lake side and take special care not to walk too close to the road on the exercize trail.
Why were the four teens out driving this late. Don’t they have a provisional driver’s license? Were any tickets issued?
Actually the roads were very slippery last night. My car spun out as I turning into a parking lot, and I was going very slow.
We can judge these kids favorable too. It’s a mitzvah after all.
The 4 bochurim all were over 18 wich makes them adults and they hydroplaned and hit a rock and flipped…i saw this first hand!
over 18 but did the have a drivers license?
Very tough to hydroplane if u are just doing the speed limit..
Just Sit somewhere around the lake and see how fast people drive You will be amazed.
speed limit on south lake drive is 25 mph…how fast were they going to roll over…scary.
Why weren’t they obeying the law? It clearly states that any person under the age of 21 is NOT allowed to have more than one (1) NON-family member in the vehicle with them with the graduated drivers license. And if the teen only had his permit than he shouldn’t have had ANYONE in the car with him but an ADULT with a LICENSE.!!!
The law- I see u don’t know the law bec ur allowed to drive with more than one passenger once u have a regular license which u get after the first year of driving nothing to do with being 21
“Wake up Lakewood ” ! Listen to your messages . #’s 5, 6, 7 If you don’t live in the neighborhood please don’t make comments about what you can’t possibly have any idea about. Blaming the Township or outside factors is probably the mentality that gives people the right to think that they are ” above the Law “. The speed signs are posted clearly and most people ignore them. I pray that these guys are alright .
Seems like everybody likes to play detective & ask the most mundane questions. It’s nobody’s business. Why not ask what these young men ate for dinner while you are at it?
now we blame the leaf piles not picked up as dangerous! Really? I need to add that to my list of emergency contacts!!!!
Glad to hear that they are all OK.
#20, why are you making up a non-existent law????
my gosh when are they going to clean up all the trees it almost summer again
We know these buchrim personally and ate glad they didn’t die! It is a true miracle.
