Brick Man Hospitalized After Being Struck, Dragged by Van in Parking Lot

Van was driving on wrong side of the road, cops say

A Brick man was hospitalized after being struck by a minivan in an apartment complex parking lot Tuesday, police said

The accident occurred at 10:21 a.m. in the parking lot of the Brick Garden Apartments, 2747 Hooper Avenue.

According to Brick Police Sgt. David Bedrosian, Su Ming, 59, of Brick, was traveling on the opposite side of the travel lane in the parking lot when her 2007 Honda Odyssey minivan struck a pedestrian as he walking north in the lot.

The pedestrian, Dilshod Kayumov, 58, of Brick, was walking in front of some parked vehicles and carrying a large empty box that he was going to discard in a nearby trash bin when he was struck. The impact of the crash caused Kayumov to ride up onto the hood of the vehicle, Bedrosian said.

After that, the minivan continued moving, eventually hitting a chain link fence and a metal post surrounding the trash bin. The force of the impact resulted in Kayumov being vaulted from the hood and onto the pavement, said Bedrosian. At that point, the minivan continued moving forward where it drove over Kayumov and dragged him an additional 40 feet before coming to a stop after it hit an unoccupied parked vehicle.

Kayumov was briefly pinned underneath the driver side rear tire of the minivan, but was freed by onlookers who lifted the tire off the ground.

Police Officers George Williams and Joshua Jenssen were the first to arrive on scene, and were later assisted by several other officers, said Bedrosian. Brick Police EMS and MONOC Paramedics also responded.

Kayumov was taken to Jersey Shore University Medical Center, Neptue, with injuries to his lower extremities and internal bleeding, said Bedrosian. He remains hospitalized there.

The investigation into the crash is still underway, Bedrosian said.

The west entrance to the apartment complex was closed and vehicles were detoured for approximately 90 minutes.

Bedrosian said it is unknown why the driver was driving on the wrong side of the travel lane.

Su Ming? Well Chinese people shouldn't have the right to have a license period! Hope Dilshod is doing ok. What was Su Ming charged with?

My the Asian driver stereotype, maybe if they made the steering wheels into the shape of cameras they would have less accidents.

Agreed Laura! No worries though people with this type of insensitive "humor" are pathetic. Sure hope they don't experience something like this cause I'm certain they wouldn't find humor in it. One who laughs at anothers tragedy will find themselves in their own! Karma's a BiTcH.... what you put out come right back at you... ;-)
