Police accident investigators report that it appears the bus traveling southbound on Highway 6 on Sunday scraped the side of the garbage truck that was stopped off to the side of the highway. Four people were reportedly killed in the accident that left approximately 35 others injured, some seriously.

Police have detained the truck driver, who was uninjured. The bus driver sustained light injuries and will be questioned as well. It appears the bus scrapped the side wall of the stationary garbage truck, causing the bus to flip onto its side.

  1. A lot of graves were dug up in building Hwy 6 and Rabbonim at the time warned against using it. It was very well engineered to be safe but still has a terrible safety record. Anyone who does use it should say tefillas HaDerech with good kavanna and use seatbelts, even on buses, as this story shows.
    Interestingly, there was a big train wreck in the south some years ago when a train ran into a dump truck, R”L, and the media suppressed the fact that the truck contained diggings from the construction of Hwy 6.
