  1. We drove past the accident this morning probably 2 or 3 minutes after it happened…….please everyone, be VERY careful when driving, especially on the GSP. Traffic was likely moving at the speed limit and then all of a sudden it came to a dead stop and the van driver must have swerved to avoid causing a chain reaction….PLEASE leave plenty of space between you and the car in front of you, at least ONE car length for every 10 mph you are traveling. We should hear only besoros tovos….

  2. I read on Matzav.com that a car hit the van. And yes.. people do have to drive with space between the cars. May Tzipporah Rochel bas Chaya Devorah have a complete Refuah Sheleima.

  3. sorry besafe, you have your facts backwards, there was no slow downed traffic that he had to avoid, the accident caused the slow down traffic, as per the girls in the van he was cut off by another car and forced off the road, but i agree, people should drive safely

  4. My daughter attends this school, and the girl that underwent surgery is in her class. I received the email shown above before it was posted here. Shocked and stunned. May all of the girls have a refuah shleimah, and may we only hear of simchas.

  5. May hashem help all to have a full and speedy recovery

    Parents should be aware Children should be transported to school with school buses. Which are fully insured. Transporting from ny to nj requires to be apprived by (fmcsa)federal motor carrier safety administration and needs to be 5 million insurance and drivers need to be state certified which is 19 a qualified. Buses need to be DOT inspected twice a year. And when using buses make sure they have insurance for hire and not from private yeshivos who give you cheap pricing and are not for hire. That when chas vasholom something like this happens there is no insurance coverage!
