A young girl was tragically struck by a hit-and-run vehicle in Flatbush, Monday morning.
Sources tell YWN that the 15-year-old girl was making her way to Madison High School, when she was struck by a vehicle at the intersection of Bedford Avenue and Avenue P. FDNY EMS as well as Flatbush Hatzolah responded to the scene. Unfortunately, she was pronounced dead at the scene.
The NYPD was on the scene conducting an investigation, and the streets were closed to traffic. Flatbush Shomrim was requested by the NYPD to assist in obtaining security camera footage from nearby homes.
It appears the the victim was struck by a yellow school bus that was making a turn, and the driver was unaware that he had struck the victim. The NYPD is attempting to locate the bus and driver.
The young girl resides in the Bensonhurst section of Brooklyn. Her identity was pending proper family notifications.
The Misaskim Organization has determined that Chevra Kaddisha services were unfortunately needed in this tragic incident.

BDE… we should only share in smachos
I live in the area and the school buses drive like crazy. There is one firm that seemingly serves yeshivas and they are aware their drivers go through red lights and more. I have to wonder where this bus was going because public schools are closed on MLK day.
Shloimy: Why was the girl a’h going to Madison High School if public schools are closed today?

its very tragic yet to be fair; where was the bus going ? all yeshivos were open yesterday . # 2 that area of flatbush is not congested at all & even less on a legal holiday . it reminds us to look and focus when driving … and its a miracle when a million kids get to school & come home daily
What right do you have to publish ShloimeB comment which is PURE לשון הרע and perhaps even מוציא שם רע?
In addition to חילול ה בפרהסיה
Did he or you go through all the steps stated in the Chofetz Chaim
