A dangerous motorist led police on a chase this morning, blew several red traffic lights and forced motorists off the road before he was apprehended, police say. An officer in the area of Route 70 and New Hampshire witnessed a driver blow through a red light on Route 70 and attempted to stop the vehicle, but the motorist failed to stop.
The officer continued to pursue the vehicle westbound on Route 70 as he continued blowing lights, swerving in and out of traffic and forcing motorists off the road, nearly causing serious accidents.
The pursuing officer was asked to break off the pursuit so as not to endanger other motorists, and continued following the vehicle from a distance, while Toms River police joined in.
Several minutes later, the vehicle came to a stop in a Toms River parking lot, where the driver was apprehended by Lakewood and Toms River police officers.
It turns out the driver was apparently suffering from some sort of medical condition, and was taken by Lakewood Police to Kimball Medical Hospital for evaluation. TLS-HK/TLS-CCP/TLS-AC.
cant fix stupid.
(i hate this mentality people have: My life is more important than everyone else, so ill endanger everyone just to save my own skin.)
what if he hit & killed a motorcyclist? or a pedestrian? or hit a car with a pregnant woman? this person should be issued every ticket he earned, and loose his license accordingly.

First off get a new spell check.
Second of states he suffered from a medical condition. So why are you so fast to call people stupid?
Please read before you make your assumptions. Because the only thing worse is when you criticize someone and in the process only make yourself look bad.
what kind of medical conditions causes you to drive agressively and weave in and out of traffic???
kudos to gary przewoznik- keep up the good work!
dont worry about superficial things like my spelling, worry about my message as a whole. YOU CANT DRIVE LIKE A MANIAC AND ENDANGER THE LIVES AROUND YOU- JUST TO SAVE YOUR OWN. pull over, call 911 and wait like everyone else would.
hence why i wrote: “(i hate this mentality people have: My life is more important than everyone else, so ill endanger everyone just to save my own skin.” – WOULD YOU BE OK IF HE RAN A LIGHT AND T-BONED YOUR CAR, JUST BECAUSE HE WAS HAVING A MEDICAL CONDITION? DOUBT IT. hypocrite. – but as long as its not your life he endangers his actions are ok?
and if you wanna play the English Teacher game:
you wrote: “Second of states”
CORRECTION: its; “second of all, it states” or “second, it states”
maybe he had LDD (Lakewood driver disorder)
I had an uncle who was swerving in traffic. He was pulled over on suspicion of being drunk. B”H the cop realized that something was wrong – he was having a major heart attack but didn’t realize it on his own. a helicopter was called to the scene it was that serious.
it does not say he was trying to get himself to a hospital, it says he had some medical condition. If it’s something he was aware of before, then he should NOT be driving. if it’s the first time something like this happened, or something new out of the blue for him/her, guess what? aneurysms can happen out of the blue with no warning too… I don’t know any details here but a medical condition doesn’t mean he was intentionally driving like a maniac.
To set the stage for the rest of my comments, I will say that I am in law enforcement. I have been involved in several situations recently where I or someone on my squad was following someone who we thought was intoxicated. When we tried to stop the person, they refused. After a slow chase, the person finally stooped. When stopped, we were able to determine the person was in diabetic shock. The symptoms mimic intoxication. Needless to say, gave aid and no charges were filed. To all who will say that we can be fooled by the driver; we can’t. The driver is taken to the hospital and his blood is tested prior to making the decision not to file charges.
As a diabetic, i kno that when u go into insulin shock, u sometimes don’t even kno who is around u, or who ppl are. I have seen ppl that do get pulled over while going into insulin shock n they don’t kno to stop, sounds become distant like u r in a tunnel. Ppl that have medical problems should have special plates so when being pulled over for sumthing the officer has a heads up to any conditions they might have .
Sounds to us like you shouldn’t be driving or typing on the internet either. Do us all a favor and keep checking your sugar please.
that’s nasty, but if pple w/ insulin shock can kill people on the road, maybe they shouldn’t be driving? if it’s so common…
#10 you are a real insesitive boar.
