  1. So scary! If the situation indeed played out like this, sounds like tragedy was averted BH and we could have been reading a very different headline tonight!

  2. Sneezer,
    This has nothing to do with tznius. Don’t kid yourself! Maybe it’s your lack of limud hatorah or sinas chinum or a bunch of other things. Don’t play navi and worry about urself!!

  3. Rabbosai – when someone says something so drastically off topic, Inflammatory and just simply, no shaychus, we gotta just ignore it. Plz do NOT respond or comment in any way to a nonsensical post. As for this story, it IS scary and I hope the girls are doing fine.

  4. Please be careful and tell your kids to be aware. This happened to two boys as well waiting to cross route 9 (standing at the edge of a driveway) A red Cadillac swerved at them attempting to hit them and they too were able to run out of the way. Chasdei Hashem!

  5. What are the chances this guy was distracted by texting, etc, and the girls, maybe dressed in dark clothing, were not on a sidewalk and in the street or shoulder. Then when he looks up he sees he is ouside the lines, startled, sees people and hits the brakes hard screaching tires. Why is everything an attack?

  6. Don’t walk in the middle or side of the street. Walk on the sidewalk only. I’m not sure why people think that shabbos it’s fine to walk in the streets.
