There were two overturn accidents in Lakewood just a minute apart from each other this evening.
The first one occurred at approximately 8:05 PM at the intersection of Cedarbridge Avenue and Clover Street.
The second rollover accident happened just minutes later on the E. 7th St., between Somerset Avenue and Brook Road.
There are no serious injuries been reported in either accident.
This is pure common sense, you do not have to be a scientific genius.
The cars, vans, SUV, all the cars today (95% of all the cars) weigh very little. They are plastic and fiberglass.
If you go a drop too fast on a turn-Bingo-the car will definitely turn over.
This is like the rule of “gravity”.
Absolutely wrong. Common cars in Lakewood comparing curb weight when introduced and 2022 model.
2022 Honda Odyssey 4400lbs
1995 Honda Odyssey 3500lbs
2022 Toyota Sienna 4600lbs
1998 Toyota Sienna 4000lbs
2022 Toyota Camry 3430lbs
1991 Toyota Camry 2910lbs
Weight increase = increased kinetic energy, combine that with with higher center of gravity….. rollover.
It’s being hazmanim the buchorim are back from Eretz yisroel. Please when you see a buchor or anyone do a crazy do a crazy move with a car honk at them. Let them know it’s not ok.
maybe they should seriously consider shidduchim as this is a known segulah for many good things
Is marriage going to turn a lousy driver into a better one?
But after all said and done the lack of police enforcement leaves us with more in our pocket to make yom tov…….
until chas vesholom the car is totaled and there are doctor bills to pay…
An ounce of prevention, or $100 ticket, is worth a pound of cure, or many thousands of dollars (or worse r”l).
And the higher insurance rates in Lakewood leave us with a lot less for Yom Tov.
Unfortunately this is boring news in Lakewood these days.
Please! Too many vehicles have a burnt/missing headlight…this can cause an accident.
Just another typical day in Lakewood
V’Nishmartem m’od l’nafosheichim is a mitzva min haTorah. Seems to have been forgotten by many…..
Once again no one is looking at the obvious cause. In the past 5 or 6 years the huge unchecked population growth in Lakewood will continue to cause more and more accidents. Route 70, in particular, has become an adventure in reckless driving. The huge multi-family complexes that line the highway will continue to be the major cause of traffic problems, accidents and deaths. I guess the political overdevelopment of Lakewood has been bought and sold.
East 7th has those unpainted, unmarked speed bumps in that stretch. They may have popped a wheelie !
