hatz ambulance tlsA Lakewood toddler was hospitalized this afternoon after being struck by a vehicle backing out of a driveway, police say.

The two-year old girl was struck around 3 PM while reportedly walking behind a vehicle backing out of a driveway in a development off of Route 88.

Hatzolah treated the child before transporting her to Jersey Shore Universal Medical Center with a leg injury.

With Summer in full swing and children playing outside, drivers are urged to use extra caution while backing out of driveways, and driving through developments.

  1. Why don’t people install back up cameras? What are they waiting for chas vestal on!! There’s a guy that comes down to your house and installs them for pretty cheap!!

  2. if you get a decent camera then you can see almost all the way to the ground behind the car/van. It also lets you see the sides if any kids are coming.

  3. WHY DOESENT HATZOLH and other organazation publicize the need fro back up cameras?

    1.lets get a letter signed by all rabonnim and roshe yeshivos urging the oilam to install back up cameras

    2. lets get a gvir to step fwd and subsidize the costs

  4. how about we just take it easy ………………………………………………..and start looking before we enter a car and being more observant while driving
    don’t drive and talk on cell phone

  5. Not driver’s responsibility to have back-up cam.
    All drivers’ responsibility to drive safely and conscientiously.
    But it’s the PARENT’s/ CAREGIVER’s responsibility to watch children. 2 year old shouldn’t be behind a moving car.
    I actually have a back-up cam…. but just saying. Don’t know why everyone making it sound like it’s the driver’s fault for not having back-up cam.
