New Jersey hit and run leaves two-year-old Nigerian child in critical condition

Published

A two-year-old Nigerian child, Eno Jameson, who lives in New Jersey with her parents has been left in critical condition after being involved in a hit-and-run crash on Mother’s Day.

The New Jersey police have tracked down the driver who was promptly arrested.

The victim’s family live in a nearby apartment from where the accident took place.

Their home is just a short walk to the church the attend located across the street. The incident took place on Sunday morning when little Eno Jameson was hit while walking alone.

The driver simply took off.

“Sad on Mother’s Day. It’s not meant to be this way,” said Itoro Jameson, the victim’s father, adding when asked why his daughter was alone outside, “[My wife] thought she was with me. I thought she was with her and I think she came out the door herself.”

Surveillance video shows the pick-up truck that police said hit the 2-year-old and then just kept going, right after two cars narrowly miss her as she lies badly injured in the middle of Brookdale Avenue near 18th Avenue.

“This morning when I came here there were a lot of police here and a little kid was crossing the street and then I guess the car hit the little girl,” family friend Nagela Saint-Fleur said.

Police said 26-year-old Romane Errol Sr. of Newark was behind the wheel when he slammed into the toddler just before 9:40 a.m. Detectives discovered his truck nearby shortly after and took him into custody.

Meanwhile, the young girl was rushed away by emergency workers to University Hospital with rib fractures, a double collapsed lung and lung lacerations.

“She’s blinking her eyes. That’s all she can do for now,” Itoro Jameson said. “My life. She’s my life.”

Friends said the family was on their way to a Sunday service at church but instead ended up at their little girl’s side in the hospital praying for her recovery.

“They were coming to our church,” Saint-Fleur said. “Nice people, very nice.”

Officials said the suspect was driving with a suspended and expired license. He was charged with operating a motor vehicle without a valid license and causing serious bodily injury.

The Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) on Monday redeemed its pledge of N60 million to the Capital Market Support Committee for COVID-19 (CMSCC) with the donation of an ambulance and N22.7 million cash.

The Chief Executive Officer, NSE, Mr Oscar Onyema, disclosed this in a statement made available to newsmen in Lagos.

CMSCC is a Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)-led initiative set up to stimulate the capital market ecosystem to play an active role in curbing the spread of COVID-19 in Nigeria.

Onyema said that the initiative was in furtherance of the collaboration in fighting the pandemic, targeting the very vulnerable in the society.

“We are facing an unprecedented crisis that requires us to adopt a more collaborative approach in fighting this pandemic, especially as economic activity and social interactions resume.

“As we work to encourage the use of reusable face masks and adherence to other safety guidelines, we call on responsible corporate citizens and well-meaning individuals to support this initiative by wearing a mask when in public settings and donating masks especially to those at the bottom of the pyramid, so as to protect lives.

“As part of the Masks For All Nigerians campaign, the Exchange executed a nationwide awareness campaign on social media and radio to educate Nigerians on the need to wear face masks, practice social distancing and maintain good hygiene.

“It also involved its Good Cause Ambassador, Innocent ‘TuFace’ Idibia, to amplify the need for Nigerians to wear and donate face masks via www.masksforallng.com, as well as adhere to the guidelines put in place to keep our communities safe.

“As part of its Employee Giveback Programme, members of staff are also donating 500 masks per week to Nigerians,” he said.

Onyema also said that the Exchange was displaying undaunted support in the fight against COVID-19.

“The Exchange has displayed remarkable resilience during this pandemic and continues to support the fight against COVID-19 in line with the strategic pillars of its Corporate Sustainability and Responsibility (CSR) strategy – community, workplace, marketplace and environment.

“The Masks For All Nigerians campaign and the attendant mask donation will provide immense support to the Government in reaching communities who have hitherto been left vulnerable.

“The Exchange also continues to sustain market activity through remote working and trading; promote market deepening activities; create an enabling regulatory environment for stakeholders; and recognise the efforts of public and private sector players in raising awareness, ramping up testing and increasing the capacity of the health sector to slow the spread of COVID-19,” he said.

The statement said the donation was received by the Chairman of CMSCC, Mr Ariyo Olushekun and the Director, Lagos Zonal Office, SEC, Mr Steven Falomo.
