  1. Chasdei HASHEM this kid was not hurt! HASHEM was surely watching him. But quite frankly he ride straight into Tm the intersection without even looking!! The driver on John street was completely blind sighted!
    Not to mention where in the world was his helmet??????
    BH! BH! BH! But parents please please teach your kids and enforce safe riding and helmet wearing!!

  2. Attention bike riders:
    Before crossing the street, STOP & LOOK! Check if the car sees you! DONT ride right into an intersection – the car may not notice you until it’s too late! The same thing almost happened to me in front of evergreen on broadway…

  3. The black sedan DID NOT come to a full proper stop meaning he stopped his vehicle way beyond the white line. Had he stopped before the white line and inched his way up he would have caught a better glimpse of the scooter rider.
    An easy & meaningful fast to all of klal Yisrael.

  4. I cannot believe people are blaming the bike rider. The cars Windows are clearly tinted and so was impossible to have made the contact. (First illegal action, front tinted windows). He rolled right past the stop sign and almost killed someone.

    Yes the biker should have slowed at the intersection but had the driver stopped where he was supposed to stop he probably would have seen the biker approaching. I wonder when Lakewood PD will start taking traffic safety seriously.

    I love the PD and respect them Tremendously. I just don’t understand how I see scenes as above happen 5 times a day and never see anyone get pulled over. They don’t see it?

  5. A good friend of mine Was riding his bike and got hit by a car, his head hit the pavement, he was in ICU for about a week and then died from his injuries, if he would’ve been wearing a helmet nothing major would’ve happened. This was years ago but now everyone knows how important it is to wear a helmet, although the story that happened yesterday did not end up a tragedy let it be a wake up call to all parents and children to WEAR A HELMET!!

  6. Having been in a similar situation when I was a kid on my bike and getting it or hitting a car that was making a left turn onto a roadway in front of me, I can understand both sides. Scary for all and glad to hear the cyclist will be fine.

    Helmets should always be a must have when riding, unfortunately this doesn’t always happen and most probably aren’t wearing them correctly.

    The cyclist should not be riding in the opposite travel of traffic as the driver may not have looked to the right fully since pulling out onto the roadway traffic is coming from the left.

    Yes the drive should have come to a full stop at the line and then inched out slowly till they have a clear line of site but we all know this never happens at any intersection because of obstructed views where the stop line is located, plus everyone is always in a hurry.

    I would still feel the cyclist was at fault as I know when I was a kid, it was clearly my fault, traveling in the opposite direction of traffic. Just glad it didn’t turn into a traffic article and maybe both the cyclist and the driver have learned a valuable lesson.

  7. No one knows yet if there are no injuries
    Sometimes it take 2 weeks to show up
    And yes it was the drivers fault
    To blame bike rider is cruelty

  8. I don’t know why people are saying that the biker is not at fault! He is very much at fault! in Lakewood the kids do not know how to cross the street, wherever you are driving kids just walk/ride into the street without looking. In this situation you can clearly see that the biker did not look.
    I hope that people can learn their lesson and start looking before they cross the street
