  1. “Pedestrian Struck In Traumatic Arrest”

    i first assumed that the police were having an extremely difficult time arresting someone, when all of a sudden a car struck an onlooker.

  2. from wikipedia:
    “Traumatic arrest is a condition in which the heart has ceased to beat due to trauma to the chest area that involves the heart.”

    in other words it is a type of cardiac arrest, caused by trauma.

  3. I turned onto Maple fro 306 and saw that we were being detoured down Phyllis. this was ~8:45. When I got home and checked YW and the Journal News. YW had the story and the Journal news, well let’s just say that they should check YW for scoops in their own backyard.

  4. Let’s hope the patient gets better and that the person who caused the accident was insured and was not at fault.

  5. Woman hit by car in Monsey


    (Original publication: November 30, 2007)
    MONSEY – A pedestrian was hit by a car and severely injured yesterday in an accident that shut down Maple Avenue for about three hours.

    Onlookers described the woman as Hispanic and 30 to 40 years old.

    Police did not confirm her identity or her condition last night.

    Moses Baurch, one of dozens of spectators, said he saw emergency workers administering cardiopulmonary resuscitation to the woman on the side of the road.

    Other residents said the woman had been hit in the middle of the road and was moved to the shoulder by emergency workers.

    Ramapo Police Officer Shawn Baker said the woman was taken by Chevra Hatzolah Ambulance Corps, which is based in Monsey, to Good Samaritan Hospital in Suffern.

    Maple Avenue was closed between Phyllis Terrace and Monsey Boulevard while police reconstructed the accident scene and examined evidence.

    The road was reopened just before 11 p.m.

    Monsey resident Ashry Yoshvi said the woman “wasn’t wearing a reflector,” gesturing to the yellow bands many people were wearing around their waists to make themselves visible in the headlights of oncoming cars.

    Yoshvi said it was important to wear the reflectors, which had been distributed by Ramapo Supervisor Christopher St. Lawrence in an effort to keep the village’s residents safe.
