Two People Run Over in Parking Lot After Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan Concert
Be careful in concert parking lots, people! On Thursday (Sept. 6), two concertgoers were run over by an SUV in the parking lot of the PNC Banks Arts Center in Holmdel, N.J. after taking in the Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan gig at the venue.
Police claimed that the parking lot was well illuminated and that two people who were laying down on the pavement were run over. The cops also said that alcohol was a factor in the incident, on the pedestrian’s, as opposed to the driver’s, part.
“Alcohol was definitely involved on the part of the pedestrians,” said State Police spokesman Lt. Stephen Jones. He elected not to provide further or more specific details about the accident.
Four people were inside the SUV that ran over Jessica Hillman, 21. She suffered a broken pelvis, a broken leg and head trauma in the incident and had to be chartered to a local hospital via a MedEvac helicopter. Her condition is serious but stable. The other pedestrian, Charles Wright, 24, refused medical attention and suffered only minor injuries as a result.
The moral of the story? Don’t lay down in active parking lots during concerts where there are thousands of vehicles. We hope Hillman has a speedy recovery.
