A pedestrian is fighting for their life and another person has been injured after a car jumped a curb and plowed into a pharmacy on Wednesday.

The horrific crash happened just before 12:00PM on busy Golders Green Road, as many people were doing their Pesach shopping. A vehicle travelling from Beverly Gardens slammed into the Victoria Pharmacy injuring two pedestrians.

As can be seen in the video below, security guards and staff from Kosher Kingdom assisted bystanders immediately.

Hatzola and Shomrim arrived on scene moments later, followed by London Ambulance, Police, London Fire Brigade and London Air Ambulance.

An Air Ambulance (medevac) was called and transported one of the victims with life-threatening injuries.

Shomrim tweeted that the road would be closed in both directions as an investigation is underway. Police were working diligently to have the road opened as soon as possible, and are well aware that the road is one of the main shopping strips for the Frum community – just days before Pesach.

It has been determined that this was not terror related.

Please say Tehillim for Dovid Moshe Ben Rochel, and Shimon Ben Zehora.

  1. Apparently a lady asked someone to park her car and the guy parking lost control and crashed into the pharmacy.
    Boruch Hashem both of the pedestrians who were injured today are alive, conscious and making good progress. Numerous bones were broken and they still have a long way to go.
    Those who saw the clip of the incident will agree that it’s nothing short of a miracle that they are alive.
    Please continue to have
    Dovid Moshe Ben Rochel
    Shimon Ben Zehora in mind in your tefillos.

  2. This message was sent by Rabbi Dovid Tugendhaft, a Rov in NW London:

    I’m just on my way back from visiting the 2 people who were knocked down today. BH both in good spirits and full of אמונה and בטחון. Mamash a נס. Mr Elkouby told me that as he lay under the car he felt that he was on his way to meet his Creator and he said the שמע. He’s full of gratitude to Hashem that he’s alive and well. David Richards likewise counting his blessings and strong in his faith. מי כעמך ישראל.
    May we all strengthen our אמונה this פסח.

    From Rabbi Tugendhaft
