    The car is going fast in slow motion.
    Hope the child is OK!

  • County safety says:

    half pedestrian accidents in town occur on county line. something ought to be done

  • Chacham says:

    @Crazy Actually look at the first part, and you will see that driver is going at normal speed. The second half is not slow motion, it’s only panned in, so things look out of proportion.

    My neighbor, our neighborhood Shabbos Goy, was hit in the crosswalk on 6th and Clifton last week. He was ok, bH. He was wearing a refector. Person was driving too fast & didn’t see him. The Lakewood roads are a real problem for pedestrians and cyclists.

  • toronto rocks says:

    That is very scary! I hope the biker makes a speedy recovery.
    Not knowing what happened, or the particular details, people don’t realize that there ARE laws even for bikers. A bike is vehicle! And a biker must obey all the laws, just like a vehicle. Including Right-of-Way! Remember your mother telling you to get off your bike when crossing a street? That’s because Pedestrians DON’T need to yield to other vehicles.

  • Oish says:

    It looks like the car tried making a left turn and didn’t realize the oncoming car so he tried avoiding a crash but didn’t realize the biker was there

  • anon says:

    I have noticed many people crossing when we have a green turning single and the crosswalk light says don’t walk, they think its there right of way because its red but they need to read the crosswalk sign because there might be a green turning single the other way, I drive my kids to school each morning and many times wait for people to cross but really isn’t safe because a car turning on green does not always take an extra precaution to look for pedestrians

  • Everybody is in a hurry says:

    Everyone needs to slow down. Also pedestrians should be more aware as to what is going on around them. Many pedestrians cross in the middle of the road when they could easily walk just a little further to the proper crosswalk. You can not assume a driver sees you. In a crowded town like Lakewood one needs to be extra careful stepping into the road.
