County’s First Fatal Accident Of The Year, Was In Lakewood

It turns out Ocean County’s first fatal motor vehicle accident of the year, was in Lakewood, police tell TLS. The fatal accident occurred last on January 7th, on Cedarbridge Avenue near the entrance to the Garden State Parkway, when a vehicle carrying two women, was hit by a vehicle which reportedly blew a red light. One of the women died, and the other was transported in critical condition.

An earlier report this week showed that Ocean, Burlington and Essex counties tied for the second deadliest counties in 2011, with 52 people killed in each. Middlesex County had the most fatal accidents last year, with 56 deaths. TLS.

  1. I come to tears everytime I think of that story, this poor women, driving about her day and her life cut short by some ignorant, inconsiderate, distracted driver who blatantly ran a red light. The tragic nature of this story goes beyond words.

  2. According to the 2011 statistics, Lakewood was the second township in Ocean County to have a fatal accident. This occurred just 10 days into the calendar year. It’s time for a change! Remember, every tiny effort you apply can make all the difference in the world. Let’s work together as drivers, bicyclists, and pedestrians to make Lakewood the safest township in Ocean county, and in all of New Jersey!

  3. wht a shame tht anyone would lose their life in such a way as driving along,doing their thing and someone just without any thought drive through a Red light is a wonder where their mind and heart is at. It had to be missing from within their body and brain. wht a shame to allow urself to hurt or take another life, someone mom, sister, aunt or grandmom because of ur inappropiate action. To have to live with tht on ur mind for ur life time is scarey

  4. To “tax”

    That’s true, but the first accident last year was during the week, and out of 52 fatalities, only 8 were on a Saturday. I am unsure what you are trying to imply with your comment.

  5. I have seen too many accidents in Lakewood alone NO matter what day of the week. There are far too many people in a small town of 25 square miles (5 of which is water so 20 square miles) where there is 93,000 people. A lot of those people don’t have legal licenses car insurance or registration on there car. Please people of Lakewood for your safety and the safety of the rest of the city you live in drive more careful. Stay off the phone, seat belt your kids, slow down, leave earlier then 5 min before your appointment time, This is not NYC please don’t make it feel like we’re driving there.

  6. What is the status of the pedestrian hit on Cedarbridge and Martin Luther King Drive, about a week ago? It was dark at the time. We have had no updates. How is he/she doing?
