We have just received information from Town Manager Joe Hartnett about the condition of a 13-year old Montclair boy who was hit by a van yesterday afternoon.
We have been informed this morning through the Police Department that the medical condition of the youngster on a skateboard who was hit by a motor vehicle yesterday on Orange Road near Hillside School has been upgraded to “guarded” following surgery. Our thoughts and prayers remain with this boy and his family.
We are waiting for a call back from Chief Sabagh, and will update during the day as we receive news. And based on reader comments, it sounds like, in general, both drivers and pedestrians need some remedial safety lessons.
