Seven Fatal Accidents In Lakewood In 2022 As State Sees Highest Death Toll In 15 Years

Seven people were killed on Lakewood streets in 2022, as the state recorded its highest death toll on roads statewide in 15 years, with a total of 687 people killed on New Jersey streets.

Included in the seven Lakewood fatalities, two were pedestrians and two were cyclists. The rest were in the vehicle itself.

Countywide, there were a total of 52 fatalities, with 12 in Toms River, seven in Manchester, and five in Jackson.

Although the number of deaths have been increasing in recent years, it is still well below the 880 people who were killed on New Jersey roads in 1990.

An earlier version of this article stated that there were eight fatalities, however that was later revised downward to seven, according to data from the New Jersey State Police.

  1. Lo olainu, Lakewood averages 15 traffic accidents DAILY, year round. Although tragic, It’s a huge chesed from the One Above that the fatality is 8 for the year!! In addition to a dual lens dash cam, and obeying the traffic laws, I have a (Rav Meir Baal HaNess) pushke in the car’s storage box. Give about $1 and say a perek of Tehilim before the 1st trip of the day to stay out of trouble . Besuros tovos.

  2. If 1990 had more death how does cellphones explain that?

    Traffic causes small accidents and loss of time and wages… not to mention high blood pressure 😂

    More people walking the streets brings risk of night time dangerous accidents and god forbid death (lighting and reflectors can go a long way)

    More and wider, safer roads must be built asap.

    The traffic lights scheduling is a mess too.

    It’s Time to hold back taxes until the state, county and township so something about it
