Hatzolah Member Averts Possible Disaster Involving Drunk Driver

hatz_rig_at_sceneThanks to a Hatzolah member and some good Samaritans, a drunk driver was taken off the road today before being able to harm any motorists, or himself. The incident occurred earlier this afternoon when motorists were waiting behind a car at a red light at the intersection of Ridge and County Line Road.

The light turned green, but the vehicle at the light did not move.

Several drivers got out of their vehicles to check up on the driver, and noticed him slumped over the wheel. Thinking he may have passed out, or worse, they frantically began calling for help.

A Hatzolah member passing the scene stopped his car and approached the driver, who was now alert.

The member began asking the driver some questions to determine what had happened.

One of the questions the Hatzolah member asked him was, if he had anything to drink today, to which the cooperative driver responded that he had indeed drank today, a couple of beers.

The member immediately called Police and EMS, who responded to the scene.

It is unknown at this time if the driver was charged. TLS-CCP

  1. Why do we always have to have that stupid question-was he frum????? Does it really make a difference? If he was frum,then you’ll want his name and social. Could we mind our own business a little already?

  2. Aha I should read carefully!!! You don’t know what a typo is?! So the question was “was HE rum”??? I think besides just reading you should try understanding what you read. It’s obvious what the question was!

  3. Try rum in a mojito.
    It’s really delicious.
    Bacardi is kosher as per the Star K.
    Enjoy, but don’t drive down County Line afterwords!
