  1. I was driving by he was walking in middle of the street right into cars. when i called 911 they said it was called in already. He looked high or drunk.

  2. I am always reading about these massive trauma’s where the patient is transported to KMC, where he later dies. Isnt it state protocol to transport a patient in this condition to the nearest trauma center, like Jersey Shore, or have a medivac do that? What capabilities does KMC have for treating a serious trauma like getting run over by a car? not much I am assuming. The paramedics have the same life sustaining capabilities as a non trauma ER, so shouldnt they transport the patient to Jersey Shore?

  3. To hmm : State DOT guideline have out lines of who goes to a Trauma Center and who goes to a local hospital and BLS and Paramedics follow those guidelines.

    But if you would have even a little knowledge then you would know know that Traumatic arrest means CPR in progress secondary to trauma and state guidelines say a CPR goes to the closes local hospital.

    Do us all a favor and think before you POST !!!!!!

  4. There was loud music playing outside an apartment by High Point- I wonder if he was walking home from that party? It was 12:30 and the music was very loud!

  5. if it takes twenty to thirty minutes to get to Jersey shore you can have the best parimedics in the ambulance but the patiant would never survive there is no replacement for an ER no matter how bad you think it is. second if i’m not mistaken these transport desisions are made by medical control not by the paramedics

  6. I was walking out of the ER when the Rig pulled in the victim was receiving cpr and was not responsive even before he reached the ER so the comment about Kimball should be kept to yourself. Kimball has a wonderful ER with great doctors and nurses. Being a nurse myself and living in the community, I brought my son there last night after an accident as well.
    Stop putting down Kimball! The EMS guys were all working in their capacity.
    Before making comments check your facts first

    The victim was DOA

  7. if you saw him and have information…even a time frame that the police can use for a time line you NEED to call them and tell them….a simple phone call can help tremendously #4!!!

  8. its a shame what happen to him.somebody out there somewhere knows or seen something..plz if u have any info come foward..he left behind 2 beautiful children.someone on here sayin he was drunk or high shouldnt even matter a young man was run down and it is more important to find out who could have done this.so plz if u seen it say it if u know anythi
    ng call the lakewood police station.732 363 0200..

  9. the fact that he looked high or drunk is irrelevant. A young mans life is lost and thats what matters the most. if he was in fact in that state of mind then who ever hit him should have stayed and helped as they probably would have not been held at fault. As licensed drivers it is our duty our responsibility to have complete awareness of all of our surroundings. there are just to many motor accidents in lakewood and unfortunately this time someone lost their life, two children lost their father, a mother lost her son. this is just not acceptable. who ever is responsible for this heinous crime should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law

  10. to jhenderson u are so rite!!a young man is now gone!and yes whoever that driver was needs to be punished for leaving the scene of the accident.it is a shame this has happened.i knew him personly.and regaurdless of anything anyone with info needs to tell it.and there are cameras on that light where it happened at,i hope it caught pictures of something so his family could have some closier.and this young man can rest in peace!justice will be served.but i do fully agree with u on your post!

  11. Im the mother of his daughter. this is terrible, now my daughter doesn’t have a father because he was hit and they couldnt stop to help him. what is wrong with people

  12. yes that is sad!maybe if they stopped to help him just maybe he would still be here.i hope they catch the person or persons who did this asap!this is wrong we have someone out there running free after they hit him and took off…how does someone jus hit somebody and take off not caring how the person is?if it was an accident then u stay and make sure the person is ok and breathing…its so sad and they cant even get it right in the paper they still have him as an unidentified man!!what is this world coming to?well like i said before i hope justice is served for him and his children and family sake!

  13. this is so unreal this is the 3rd day since this young man has been gone and no witnesses nobody has been caught?what is going on here there is a murder out here running free the person hit and killed a young man.and not to stop to see if he was ok is so wrong.he could have made it if they stopped and called for help right away.why have they not looked at the cameras on that light by the intersection of rt.9 and prospect?what are they waiting for?i hope they catch who did this horrible thing to this young man.but really was it accidental?was it done purposely?who could do such a thing like this?for his family and children i will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers that this will soon be over and the person is caught.

  14. please if anybody knows anything please tell somebody.put yourself in his familys shoes for just a second.they want peace.if it was your family member you would want this person caught and paying for what they did.if you saw or heard anything please say something.this young man deserves to be at peace and more so his family.please do the right thing if you know something anything.
