A mother and three of her children are lucky to be alive after they were struck and pinned under a school bus in Flatbush, Wednesday evening.
Sources tell YWN that the incident occurred on Avenue J and New York Avenue at around 5:00PM. The FDNY and NYPD Emergency Services Unit had to use a jack to lift the bus to have one child removed.
Hatzolah transported the children and mother to the hospital. Please say Tehillim for the mother who was transferred to the ICU. Her name is Anette Naomi Bas Esther. Two children have been released from the hospital, and a third remains hospitalized. Her name for Tehillim is Bracha Esther Bas Anette Naomi.
The details are being investigated by the NYPD Accident Investigation Team, but highly credible sources tell YWN that the NYPD had initiated a traffic stop of a vehicle for a motor vehicle infraction. For reasons unknown, the driver failed to stop and fled police, and in the process, struck the mother and children, throwing them under the bus. It’s important to note that the NYPD was not in pursuit of the vehicle at the time that the group was struck.
Additionally, YWN has learned that the NYPD has already recovered the vehicle a short distance away, and an arrest is expected.
Inspector Richie Taylor, Commanding Officer of Community Affairs was on the scene and is in contact with acting Chief of Department Jeffrey Maddrey who pledged all NYPD resources to find the individual responsible and provide support for the family.
