TEHILLIM: Child hospitalized after being struck, dragged by vehicle in Lakewood (VIDEO)

A child was struck and reportedly dragged by a vehicle in Lakewood today.

The accident occured shortly after 6 PM on Williams Street.

Upon arrival, emergency personnel found the child semi-conscious, officials say.

Hatzolah transported the child to JSUMC.

Lakewood’s Traffic Safety division is investigating.

Please take a moment to be Mispallel for Yosef ben Tzipora Shprintza.

UPDATE: Police say the 13 year old was traveling along the south bound shoulder when he attempted to cross Rt. 9 just north of Omni Ct. A gray Volkswagen Jetta, operated by a 20-year-old Lakewood woman, struck the boy head on as she was traveling south on Rt. 9. The victim was thrown over the roof and was dragged a short distance until the vehicle came to a stop in the north bound lane, just south of Omni Ct.

As a result, the young male suffered possible head trauma and was transported to Jersey Shore University Medical Center by Lakewood Hatzolah.

In addition, the registration for 2017 Volkswagen was determined to be expired and was subsequently impounded. The investigation is still active and additional charges may be pending.
