Car Crashes At Squirrel Hill Shul; Bystanders Catch Fleeing Men

Pittsburgh – Two men inside a car that crashed into a synagogue in Squirrel Hill on Tuesday evening tries to flee on foot, but bystanders wouldn’t let them go.

A WTAE Channel 4 Action News crew at the scene outside Congregation Poale Zedeck at Phillips and Shady avenues said the car was demolished, and cement and railings at the synagogue were damaged.

Witnesses told WTAE Channel 4 Action News that the car came up on the sidewalk and crashed.

Police said two men inside the car tried to take off but were held down by witnesses. Police said they believe the men in the car may be connected to an earlier hit-and-run on Murray Avenue.

“The driver jumped out of the window and passenger fell out of the side. He ran over and grabbed the passenger by the hand and started running down the street, and about 30 people came out of the building and a few ran up the street and held them down until the cops came,” said Chaim Shollam, a witness.

A Marine was among the people restraining the two men.

No one was injured.
