It is with great sadness that Matzav.com reports the passing of a 56-year-old man in Lakewood, NJ, moments ago on this Motzoei Taanis Esther.
The man was walking on Central Avenue, near Hillside Blvd. and the entrance of West Gate, when he was struck by a vehicle.
Passersby immediately called Hatzolah, who treated the patient at the scene. The patient, suffering from traumatic arrest, was administered CPR and transported to Monmouth Medical Southern Campus (Kimball) in severe condition.
Further details will be provided once proper notifications are made.
Boruch Dayan Ha’Emes.
Update: The niftar is R’ Peretz Scheinerman z”l, who recently moved to Lakewood. He is a brother of Rav Moshe Scheinerman, rov of Khal Bnei Hayeshivos of Flatbush. (Note: The niftar has a nephew and a cousin with the same name.)
