Driver Uninjured After Striking Car, Gas Line & Two Homes In Brookhill Estates

PHOTOS & VIDEO: A driver was miraculously uninjured this afternoon after an MVA sent her into a gas line and two homes before coming to a stop. The incident curred at about 1:00 PM at the intersection of Lucerne Drive and Engelberg Terrace, and Hatzolah and Police responded to the scene, finding a minivan in the backyard of a home.

According to a witness, the driver of the minivan collided with a car at the intersection, causing her to lose control. The vehicle, according to bystanders, took out a mailbox and gas line before swiping a home and then spinning around and hitting another home.

The airbags were deployed and the woman was uninjured, but shaken up.

The other driver was also uninjured.

The Lakewood Fire Department responded to the scene for the gas leak, which caused the home to be evacuated by police.

Hatzolah trasnported the patient to KMC for observation. TLS-CCP.

  1. It’s extremely hard to see oncoming vehicles due to parked cars on these roads near the intersection. The same blindness would occur on a side-street intersection like Somerset and East County Line.

  2. To #1 – Are you suggesting drivers forego safety and blindly drive into a roadway? Turning blindly is in no way an acceptable excuse for causing a motor vehicle accident.

  3. to #4 you must not drive in town where people pass stop signs as if they were suggestions. I bet if there where police on the corners giving out tickets, people would learn to stop. yes it would cost as some extra taxes or take them from where they should be but this would also keep us safe.

  4. To #4 and 5 – actually, blindness is not something you choose. It’s a liability and makes an intersection unsafe. There’s a reason that you’re not supposed to park too close to an intersection. How far are you expected to lean forward and inch into an intersection to see before you are sticking out too far? Side streets need signs and rules just like bigger intersections.

    Of course, be as careful as you possibly can. In Lakewood, that’s already not enough to keep you safe on these hectic roads.

  5. BROOKHILL RESIDENT: 3 solutions for speedint (Ordered by better to worse)
    1) speed bumps – township should not be in the way
    2) police should give speeding tickets.
    3) electronic device that displays car’s speed

    REALITY: nothing is going to happen 🙁

  6. No we don’t need more traffic lights, we need more people to learn how to drive and follow the law. Stopping at a white line in the left hand turn not two car lengths ahead of it. or pullig out into on coming traffic just because they are too much in a hurry to wait for the flow of traffic to give them safe space to merge into traffic.
