  1. I watched the accident as it unfolded. What a pity if only we would NOT be in such a RUSH to catch the wud of been avoided Refua Sh’laima to the Injured

  2. Menachem. Hard to understand your comment. The van was not moving and off to the side. A person who was not going to the bus rammed into the van at full speed which caused the (passenger) van to bang into pedestrians who were waiting for the bus which wasn’t there yet.
    B’H it seems that aside from bruises and some broken bones (which is not wished on anyone), the long term prognosis of the accident victims is good.

  3. the woman’s name is brindel bas miriam zissel—she is my grandson’s wife–she is undergoing surgery (the second one) tomorrow –tuesday–may she have a complete refuah
