Different vehicles in Lakewood hit five pedestrians within just 6 days. The first accident involved a senior at Lakewood High School who became a victim of hit-and-run in East Kennedy Boulevard at Clifton Avenue. The 17-year-old driver did not stop the car, and the victim has been reported to suffer serious injuries and remains to be in critical condition.
Meanwhile, investigators are still on the lookout for a white Jeep Liberty. The police from the state’s Department of Transportation obtained a video showing the 17-year-old’s accident. Police stated that there’s no way that the Jeep’s driver was not aware that his or her vehicle hit someone.
Three men who were struck by different cars on Cedarbridge Avenue, just minutes apart in two separate accidents. A 2000 Volkswagen Cabrio driven by a 58-year-old woman hit two pedestrians walking together. Immediately after the accident, a 63-year-old Lakewood man ran to their aid but a second car then hit him.
Although the two people only suffered minor pedestrian injuries, the man who came to their aid has been reported to be in critical condition.
The fifth pedestrian hit by a car was a woman who was 47 years old. The victim was struck by a car at Lexington Avenue and East Kennedy Boulevard, and was rushed to Jersey Shore University Medical Center for immediate medical treatment.
