Toddler In Stable Condition After Being Pinned Under Vehicle

PHOTO: A toddler is in stable condition after being struck by a vehicle and pinned underneath it this afternoon. The accident occurred on Ashley Avenue a short time ago when the driver of the vehicle was reportedly backing out of a driveway, where a 2 year old was standing.

The toddler was knocked to the ground and slid under the car as the driver continued pulling out, not noticing the child, untill several bystanders reportedly screamed at the driver.

The toddler was pulled from underneath the car by the time multiple Hatzolah – BLS and ALS – members, as well as EMS, arrived on scene.

Miraculously, the tires never drove over the child.

The patient was transported to Jersey Shore Medical Center with non-life threatnening injuries. TLS-CCP.

  1. I pray that this child makes a full recovery. PLEASE, PLEASE all Lakewood drivers take a walk around your vehicle before moving it, Far too many unsupervised young children roam our streets and this is one example of what can happen. A simple once around the vehicle can prevent further incidents such as these.

  2. Glad to hear that the child had non life threatening injuries. My prayers are with this family and this child, for a speedy recovery.

  3. it would be a very good practice for everyone to back into their driveway – it takes getting used to but it is so much safer because you always look before you go in and you can see everything before you go out – it should be mandatory – it’s not only safer but much easier on the drivers!

  4. To “hello”

    Can you please cite where this law is written? I have read the entire driver’s manual, and I have never come across such a law. Perhaps I missed it. Will you please provide proof that such a law exists in the state of New Jersey.

    Also, isn’t it just as dangerous when backing into a driveway?

  5. to #11 – it’s not dangerous if done right because you usually drive past where you will be backing into and you can see everything there you then put your car in reverse and it should be fine – it works great for me and i think if you try you will find it is much safer.

  6. And backing out if done right works out fine as well.
    Everyone should always be alert and stop lecturing everyone when there’s an accident, because that’s what it is.
    I don’t hear these lectures by every fender bender on New Hampshire near the ballpark. That’s a killing field and is 99% avoidable if people were careful.
