Multiple police officers and Hatzolah members – including Paramedics – responded.
The patient suffered two broken legs and was transported to Jersey Shore Medical Center with Medics aboard. TLS-CCP/TLS-89
UPDATE 12:10 p.m. TLS has been notified that from a source at the Hospital that the patient has suffered a broken ankle. it was initially believed that both his legs were broken.
Please please install a traffic light on ninth and clifton. Its sakanas nefoshos every single day. Thousands of pedestrians, children, hundreds of cars. What is this township waiting for!?
speak to the mayer or the township whats it goona help by posting it on lakewoodscoop?
Where was the crossing guards ???
You mean the government doesn’t read the Lakewood scoop??
Everbody reads it!!!
Thanx S.L for great quick response keep up the good work. Were really proud of you
Here we go let’s start blaming everyone for this tragic accident
did you notice that it said that the car went out of control and hit someone on the side???? ye a traffic light would be nice- but no shaychus to the story
whats his name so we can daven for him? how is he doing in the hospital? please post
The crossing guards don’t work all day…..Make them all Full Time…
People cross all day, they need a light almost at every corner now….The town is growing daily
The accident report clearly states that the car “lost control” and as a result of the loss of control a pedestrian was injured.
So please tell me how crossing guards, traffic lights, etc.. would’ve changed this unfortunate event..
People lose control on every road in the planet – including the supposedly safest roads too..
Perhaps the accident’s cause was a bad steering column, bad breaks, inattentive driving, texting, who-knows-what..
So, using this very sad event to advance your agendas is uncalled for..
A driver losing control on the road is like a meteor falling out of the sky and landing on a pedestrian.. A traffic signal won’t help at all..
I personally am not jumping to install traffic lights at every single intersection near a yeshiva or school. It will just cause greater congestion of an already congested traffic situation.
Comment #9 before reading a story maybe check it was written correctly. Yes the traffic light is needed! The story is a little incorrect.
There was another car going the opposite direction since there was no TRAFFIC LIGHT and the driver didn’t see a stop sign the driver had to short stop this made driver #2 loose control. So YES a TRAFFIC LIGHT IS NEEDED!!!!
please, stop arguing and instead daven for the injured.
please add his name to
You are wrong!
The original offending vehicle was coming from 9th Street – east of Clifton Ave and driving at full speed in an EASTERNLY direction (towards Madison Ave) — even though there is already a STOP sign there. The second vehicle (involved in the accident) was heading south on Clifton. Again, the first vehicle was NOT (as you claim) coming from Clifton in the opposite direction. And NO! Stop demanding more traffic lights on every corner of our town because of drivers that should be better trained that a STOP sign means that you have to slow down and STOP!
# 10 was right!
#13 you are right. I agree. 🙂 but I still think a TRAFFIC LIGHT is needed!
If you want a traffic light you need body counts not injuries. Or you could just look where you are going and put down the cell phones?
Boro Park has traffic lights at most corners, we’re definitely headed in that direction., however lights are not always the solution. . There are to many drivers that are very aggressive lacking consideration for those that really have the right of way. I’m also thinking that cell phones might be contributing to the increase in motor vehicle accidents. PERHAPS IT SHOULD BE PROHIBITED AS RECOMMENDED FOR TRUCKERS AND BUS DRIVERS.
# 15 it is illegal!!!!
13 is right. saw it happen. people r all in a rush and have no courtesy on the roads. the driver that hit the man was trying to avoid an accident. thank goodness the man is alive. chasdei hashem!
Thank you # 18
I love the Scoop and all, but why is every accident offered up for blog fodder? Like, is there any room for human privacy anymore?
theres nothing wrong with speeding if u no how 2 drive no need 4 traffic light just learn how 2 drive
Wow, another accident in Lakewood; what a surprise! The the town is not what it used to be. Every day another one. It’s getting funny at this point,, like a really bad joke. Can’t wait till tommorrow. What will it be next…?
Another accident in Lakewood??? Can’t believe it. Not in this town.
this is a nice thing that its listed on the scoop bec i saw the guy laying on the floor and was worried all day about his condition, now that i saw that he broke a ankle i’m relieved (not that a broken ankle is fun but compared to what it looked like i’m relieved.)
and yes just to hock about it is a waist of time. (see #20)
