Lakewood, NJ – Dilcia Guevara-Tabora Killed in Pedestrian Accident on Madison Ave

Lakewood, NJ (October 18, 2022) – A church member died in a pedestrian accident on Saturday, October 15th when a man making a three-point turn in the parking lot accidentally went forward instead of backward.

A Dodge Caravan driven by 40-year-old Abelino Landaverde-Ayala struck 46-year-old Dilcia Maribell Guevara-Tabora while she was sitting on a curb. 

The pedestrian accident happened in front of the St. Vincent De Paul Food Pantry, which sits adjacent to The Catholic Community of St. Mary of the Lake.  

As a result, paramedics took Guevara-Tabora to a nearby hospital where she passed away. 

The driver also struck two girls, 12 and 13 years old. They were moved to Jersey Shore University Hospital for medical treatment. 

The two girls are not related to the victim.

Landaverde-Ayala received a citation for careless driving. Additional charges may be forthcoming.  

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim, Ms. Dilcia Maribell Guevara-Tabora, at this time. Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.
