BREAKING: Two Pedestrians Seriously Injured Following Separate Accident in Lakewood [VIDEOS]

Emergency personnel are on scene of a serious accident in Lakewood this morning.

The accident happened approximately 11:00 AM on Shorrock Road.

Police tell TLS there was a minor accident on Shorrock Road, and the two drivers got out of their vehicles, exchanging information.

While standing on the road, a third vehicle reportedly came and struck the rear of one of the vehicles, which propelled one vehicle into the woods, and briefly pinning both pedestrians.

CPR is in progress on at least one patient, and a tourniquet was applied to another.

A medevac was requested.

UPDATE: The chopper was cancelled, and both patients are being transported to JSUMC with serious injuries.

The driver who struck the vehicles parked on the shoulder was not injured.

Lakewood’s Traffic Safety Division is investigating the accident.

Shorrock Road Northbound will be closed for the duration of the investigation.

    • But luckily TLS did not block the license plate of the police vehicle. Hence, I was able to learn that the owner of this police vehicle is wanted by the FBI in connection with a string of armed arrests that ocurred in Lakewood over the last several months.
      “If you see the owner of this police vehicle,” an FBI bulletin says, “contact the FBI immediately because the owner of this vehicle poses a direct threat to the criminal community at large.”
      “A summons was handed to said individual last month,” the FBI bulletin goes on to say, “ordering him to come down promptly to FBI headquarters for a hearing, in which eye-witnessess will testify that they’ve seen the alleged arrester commit acts of extreme valor and bravery.”
      “During the FBI hearing,” the bulletin warns, “the suspect will be handed a new summons to come down to FBI headquarters to receive the State’s highest honors.”
      “The aforementioned suspect is wanted for the abduction of dozens of NJ murderers and thieves,” the bulletin warns. “Please do not approach him, or try to haul him to FBI headquarters on your own to help him receive his medals, as he is highly armed and more than capable of defending himself from unnecessary fame and honor.”

  1. Hoping TLS will not post my previous comment. I forgot what this post was all about when I wrote the comment. How did I forget so quickly? I don’t know.
    Thanx.

  2. I feel terrible for them, and may they get well soon. But yes, it is a statistical fact that many crashes take place at crash sites, as people are either rubbernecking and not concentrating on the road – and the unusual things that can be there (people crossing, debris etc.) or they simply don’t realize cars are stopped in an unusual place.
    If possible, try to pull off as much as possible, and be wary of cars possibly crashing into stopped vehicles. Don’t stand in front of or between cars.
    Even in the shoulder of a highway, it’s possible a driver can be drowsy and just following the car in front of them, and especially at night, when it’s harder to see, so they may think the stopped car is moving. Put on four-way hazards.
    Sadly, such tragedies have happened in the past.
