Dashcam Captures Pedestrian Being Struck by Vehicle on Rt. 9 in Lakewood [VIEWER DISCRETION ADVISED]

Dashcam video captured a pedestrian being struck by a vehicle on Rt 9. in Lakewood.

The accident happened last week, at the intersection of Madison Avenue and 9th Street, around 4:30 PM.

Video shows the woman crossing Madison Avenue in the walkway, when a vehicle turning onto Madison Avenue struck her.

The driver initially fled the scene, but then returned around 10 minutes later.

David Bottcher, who witnessed the accident happen, watched as a second vehicle turned and nearly ran over the pedestrian. That’s when he heroically pulled into the intersection, and blocked the pedestrian with his vehicle, while calling police.

The pedestrian was transported to MMCSC with serious but not life-threatening injuries.

David shared the video exclusively with TLS in an effort to bring awareness to other drivers.

  1. Thank you David for protecting the woman who got knocked to the ground.
    May the Almighty protect your family for ever.
    Everyone in Lakewood knows that the intersection of Madison & 9th St has always many people crossing from 7 AM till 11 PM. People need to drive slowly at that intersection.
    Also I think the driver needs to have his eyes checked for possible cataract surgery.

      • While I would agree she did use the cross walk but if you look at the walk signal it would appear that it was a no walk symbol at the time. Not saying the driver was right either as both really need to pay attention when turning or crossing.
