Lanes Shifted Where Children Hit in New Brunswick
Officials are changing the lanes on a road a week after they said New Brunswick's fire director hit three children who were crossing the street after school.
The Home News Tribune reports police on Tuesday narrowed the traffic flow on Livingston Avenue to a single lane in each direction between Delavan and Baldwin streets and between Elizabeth and Loretta streets. Traffic can make turns from a center lane.
Fire Director Robert Rawls has been ticketed for careless driving and failure to stop for a pedestrian in a crosswalk.
Authorities say Rawls was on duty and in a city-owned SUV when he struck two 14-year-old girls and a 6-year-old boy on Livingston Avenue on Tuesday. The children sustained broken bones.
