  1. Hmmmm, 2 crashes, in close proximity & both into telephone poles. Ok – I think I got it – the roads around/near poles are not good. They’re rocky & uneven – they also attract wet mounds of leaves – & THAT’S why these ppl crashed into them. Yes, that must be it.

  2. lakewood is not safe anymore to live-in all categories, from driving to robberies & healthwise etc…-its time we all picked ourselves up & went to the one & only safe place, protected with safety by Hashem-Eretz Yisroel-the land that was chosen for klal yisroel to dwell in & given over to us by Hashem, with a gaurantee for success there.

    lets pick ourselves up now, before its too late & we are forced to flee the USA-as anti-semitism continues to grow & our rite’s are beings taken away one by one-wishing we had left before being forced too.

  3. Lesson for the day:
    Don’t drink and drive because those poles are out to get the drunks. They always jump into the middle of the road to stop the intoxicated drivers.

  4. accidents will soon become a non-news content, since it a daily occurance. we may start getting weekly stats…..similar to war zones.
