JACKSON-On Tuesday January 24, 2017 at approximately 6:52 am, patrol officers and emergency personnel responded to Brewers Bridge Road in the area of Buckingham Drive on the report of a juvenile who had been struck by a vehicle.
Upon arriving at the scene, officers determined that a teenaged male suffered minor injuries after being struck by a 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix while crossing Brewers Bridge Road to board a township school bus. The driver of the involved vehicle was identified as a 57 year old female resident of Lakehurst. She stopped her vehicle immediately and was fully cooperative with the investigating officers.
The teenaged male was transported by ground to a local hospital as a precaution.
The preliminary investigation indicates that the juvenile had entered the roadway prior to the bus coming to a stop and activating its red flashing lights. The incident is still currently under investigation by Police Officers Trevor Crowley and Brad Reider of the department’s Traffic Safety Unit.
