A 55-year-old Eatontown man is expected to make a full recovery after being hit by a van in the parking lot of the Laurel Gardens Apartment Complex on Tuesday afternoon
Gregory Lemay was doing construction work in the complex, located off Wycoff Road in Eatontown, when an apartment maintenance worker, Manuel Kaymakcian, 53, of Neptune City, accidentally backed his van into him at 1:34 p.m.
According to Eatontown Police Detective Lt. Lawrence Tyler, Lemay walked behind the van in order to access a storage shed located in the parking lot, but Kaymakcian did not see him when attempting to leave the area.
LeMay was knocked to the ground and was rendered unconscious. He also received a large laceration to the back of his head and was transported to Jersey Shore Medical Center by the Eatontown First Aid Squad.
The Monmouth County Serious Collision Analysis Response Team (SCART) responded to assist with the investigation as well as Traffic Officer Tony Guido of the Eatontown Police Department.
