Lakewood Teen Seriously Hurt In Electric Scooter Accident

A 15-year-old Lakewood resident suffered serious injuries to his skull following yet another incident involving electric scooters.

The accident, which occurred Thursday evening on Spruce Street left the teen with a fractured skull, broken jaw, missing teeth (Chaveirim was called to help try and find some of the teeth), as well as severe injuries to his face.

Hatzolah transported the patient to CHOP, where he is still being treated.

As the amount of incidents involving electric scooters continues to skyrocket in Lakewood, it is is important to note that E-scooters are required to follow all of New Jersey’s bike laws.

Electric scooter riders under the age of 17 in New Jersey are required by law to wear a helmet.

  1. Parents please, take this as a lesson to stop letting your children ride these dangerous toys! I have too many times seen these kids riding without a care about the safety of traffic laws. In my days bicycles were the way to go and my family was taught that you have to get off and walk your bike by every intersection. Please please, always make sure your kids have helmets and wear reflectors!!! Refuah Shleima to the boy that’s injured!

  2. Refuah shilayma!!!

    Yesterday, about 8:00 p.m., when the sky was still foggy & it was dusk, a teenage boy ran across pine St in an arc shape (from the Albert intersection) narrowly missed being hit by a car. All in the name of trying to hitch.

    Parents, we need to educate our kids over & over on all types of safety. Their brains do not work the way adults do. They think they’re invincible.

    These kids are our future. They are precious gifts from Hashem. Protect (& daven!!) them!

  3. Yesterday I saw an e-scooter on County line going over 30 mph together with all the cars. I never imagined that these “toys” can go that fast!

  4. I don’t understand why they let kids drive these electric bikes and scooters, they should require age and license, don’t we have enough accidents already why is this different from cars and motorcycles?

    • How is a licence acquisition going to ameliorate the situation. It’s just a matter of time that these same reckless scooter operaters will drive a car the same way. Just you wait and see.

  5. This listing has loads of false information. BH he is doing ok. There was no jaw or skull fracture. Yaakov bn MaZal for tehillim. He has some injury to his face and bh all teeth were in his mouth but he will need tefillos.

  6. The solution, I believe, is to raise the the legal driving age to 21 years old. Today’s teenagers can’t handle the responsibility of driving a 🚗.

  7. Electric scooters are inherently unsafe. High speed + small wheels = little room for error. Major instability. Unless you are traveling on pristine pavement, you are at a high risk of crashing.
