LAKEWOOD-On Tuesday at approximately 5:18 pm, Lakewood Police were dispatched to the intersection of Clifton Avenue and Carey Street for a report of a pedestrian struck. Upon their arrival they found a nine  year old Lakewood boy had been struck.

The subsequent preliminary investigation by the Lakewood Police Department and the Ocean County Prosecutors Office indicates that a School Bus was turning from Carey St, southbound onto Clifton Ave. The bus stopped with its’ warning stop lights activated as students disembarked. As the 9 year old boy left the bus and began to cross the street, he was struck by a 2004 Nissan Sentra traveling northbound on Clifton Ave and dragged through the intersection approximately 80 feet.

The driver of the Nissan Sentra is identified as Michael Adler, 26, of Lakewood. At this time, Adler is charged with Reckless Driving and Failure to Stop for a School Bus. Adler consented to a blood draw which was conducted at Kimball Medical Center. The investigation continues to ascertain if additional charges are warranted
