  1. how did the truck end up at such an odd angle? it seems he drove between the apartment buildings to crash into the tree… weird

  2. It’s called physics. The truck hit the tree more to the left of center so it rotated to the position it was photographed in. The left side stopped while the right side wanted to continue its original direction.

  3. I live on 12th St and b’h power is restored – it should be okay by Bais Faiga and by the wedding iy’h Mazel TOv!

  4. Cut off in lakewood? You don’t say. Driving through lakewood is an experience all to its own. The cars themselves are a pleasure to look at. Most appear to resemble that picture above.
