  1. This is terrible news. The article states “in a freak accident”, this was not a freak accident. This could have been avoided. All people operating vehicles whether they are cars, trucks, or buses need to be careful and pay attention and obey traffic laws.

  2. This is a very sad day for the entire Lakewood community.
    May she rest in peace and may G-D give the strength to her family to cope with there tremendous loss.

  3. Did she wear a helmet? I know a bus is stronger than a helmat but only her leg was pinned the head injuries where only from the fall

  4. i believe helmets are required for persons under 16 . even so ,a bus fell on top of her, do you think a helmet will do anything?

  5. This is truly a sad day. Such a young life taken away in its prime, enough to bring anyone to tears. May god watch over all of us and bring an end to all tradgady in this wonderful town we call home.

  6. so sad for the girl, l’havdil, may the kallah have a refuah shleima -maybe tls can make a program that you can download the kapitlach tehillim on the side of the screen (letsay 1-10, 10-20) so people will be able to recite them on the spot and finish tehillim easily instead of pledging and maybe forgetting? just an idea

  7. Very sad… Just want to make a point. Who are we to decide that this was this person or that persons fault? I know that a person is responsible for his actions, but can any one of us say we never made a mistake? Sadly this mistake had terrible repercussions.

  8. It is always a sad day for Lakewood Township when one of our residents is critically injured. We have so many car accidents in town that is always going to be an issue. My thoughts and prayers are with this family and remain with them through these very difficult times. I hope the people in the other vehicle are going to recover and be well. In spite of the horrible situation and the need to act very fast at the scene, I commend the Lakewood PD, Lakewood FAS, Hatzolah EMS and our Paramedics for doing a great job of mitigating this situation and working so hard to save her life. In spite of the later outcome, a very fine job by all.

  9. i feel terrible for the family and what they are going through. To lose a child r”l is beyond words. Maybe TLS can post an address so that we can send condolence cards. May no parent ever have to experience this sort of unbearable pain and anguish!

  10. so sad. her family is going to be grieving for a long time. 16 is way too young and now her family won’t see her getting married and having a family of her own. we should pray for more happy moments and be thankful for the laws we have helping to keep us safe. if we didn’t have these laws, the world would be a very bad place. even if there are still accidents in the world, we should be thankful for the people who help protect us and who do their best to keep things under control.

  11. I’d rather be called an old slow poke on the road, and get gestures from all theyoung guys in a big hurray, than be the cause of such a terrrible accident like this. Everybody PLEASE Slow Down!

  12. Such sad news. My thoughts and prayers to her family and my she RIP.
    To all the drivers driving through lakewood and anywhere else, PLEASE slow down and pay better attention.

  13. may she rest in peace and my we pray for her family, and we must pray for the kallah and her family, this was a tragedy all around.

  14. i hope the rest of the people living in lakewood and the surrounding towns use this event as a wake up call and slow down, hang up the phone and pay attention while driving!!

  15. I would like to Thank The L”W Scoop for posting this it teaches us To drive safely A car is Not A Toy ; Drive carefully We hate Accidents

  16. My thoughts and prayers are with this family. They need money to send her body home. Let’s pull together and make this happen for them.

  17. dear #17, when people predictably make mistakes we absolutely MUST judge and take action; otherwise we are not sensible and the Gemarra proscribes accepting senseless people. it is time to start taking #3’s comments seriously and even ostracize unsafe drivers.

    that being said, such a tragedy is surely from Hashem and for deeper reasons than we can ever fathom.
