TEHILLIM: Couple Struck By Vehicle On Route 42, Wife Airlifted To Trauma Center


A husband and wife walking in Monticello were both struck by a vehicle on Sunday night.

It happened just before 9:00PM on Route 42 near “Ichud” in Monticello.

Catskills Hatzolah treated both victims on the scene, and requested a Medevac to airlift the wife, who had suffered a head injury.

The husband was transported by a Hatzolah ambulance.

Both were taken to Westchester Medical Center.

The names for Tehillim are Yoel Ben Sarech and Rivka Bas Chaya Yita.

  1. Refoel Moishe: Is there a specific reason you’re interested in this?
    I’m in a bungalow across the road from Ichud and can tell you of countless of acts of reckless stupidity committed by drivers and pedestrians alike there. There’s low visibility in places and speed limit is 45. People speed faster than that, and pedestrians don’t walk on the correct side of the road (facing oncoming traffic). People cut across the road without looking carefully enough, and walk in the dark with zero reflective gear. Drivers cut out of driveways and make illegal turns, go INTO parking lots at places clearly marked EXIT ONLY, and so on.

    I don’t care whose fault caused this accident. We have 2 Yidden who are injured and need a Refuah Sheleimah. THAT is all you should be concerned with after reading this article.
