TRAGEDY: Young Mother Killed in Car Accident in Toms River; Infant Safe [UPDATED – Levaya Info] (VIDEO)
The single car accident occurred around 11:15 am on New Hampshire Avenue just south of North Maple Avenue.
Police say the vehicle went off the road and down an embankment, where the vehicle flipped.
Emergency services from Toms River responded, and when witnesses realized it was a Jewish woman, Lakewood Hatzolah was called.
The woman, 28, and mother of three young children who recently moved from Lakewood to Toms River, was R”L Niftar on the scene.
An infant inside the vehicle was extricated by emergency personnel, and hospitalized in stable condition. The infant was reportedly found upside down in the vehicle, and emergency personnel needed to cut the baby out.
“It’s a very tragic accident, but the fact that someone noticed it is tremendous Chassodim,” an Askan on scene told TLS.
Askonim from Lakewood are working with local and County officials to ensure proper Kavod Ha’meis is given.
Additional information will be published later.
UPDATE 4:20 PM: Askonim have notified TLS that the family has now been notified of the incident, and the name of the Niftar can be released.
The victim was identified as Leah Eisdorfer A”H (maiden name Bergman, Boro Park), wife of R’ Dovid. The family resided on North Lake Drive in Lakewood until they moved to Toms River approximately two weeks ago.
Levaya information will be published once confirmed.
UPDATE: The Levaya will be taking place at 9:30 PM at the 7th Street Chapel, and the Kevurah will take place in Monsey.
