The single-vehicle accident occurred around 9 PM at approximately mile marker 105.
Moments after the accident, a Lakewood Hatzolah member, an off-duty police officer and off-duty EMT passed by the scene and sprang into action.
The Hatzolah member was the only one on scene with the proper equipment.
The one-year-old, reportedly unrestrained in the car seat, was found unconscious, officials say. Three others in the vehicle were not seriously injured.
“A one-year-old infant was ejected and suffered serious injuries,” The NJSP told TLS.
The first ambulance arrived approximately 15 minutes later, and transported the toddler to Jersey Shore University Medical Center with severe injuries.
The Troopers and others thanked the Lakewood Hatzolah member and off-duty Good Samaritans for being at the right place at the right time.
