Famed Israeli singer Motty Steinmetz and his manager Ruvi Banet were miraculously saved from a head-on collision this week on the way to a meeting in Lakewood, New Jersey.

As they were driving in the pouring rain, a white jeep spun out of control, crossing two lanes and colliding head-on with the car in which Motty and Ruvi were traveling.

In the video, Ruvi can be seen jumping out of the car to take a photo of the offending vehicle.

Steinmetz, who was in the United States for a series of Lag B’Omer performances, told B’Chadrei Chareidim: “We were on the way to Lakewood for a meeting. Ruvi was driving carefully due to the rain, and then a vehicle that was two lanes next to us was hit by another vehicle from behind, and it lost control and hit us directly.”

“It was mamash nisim, we weren’t hurt at all. Hodu L’Hashem Ki Tov Ki L’Olam Chasdo.”

Steinmetz and Banet are now safely back in Israel.

  1. Hodu lashem they are ok. But hitting the front of a car doesn’t make it a head on collision. Head on collision is when two vehicles traveling in opposite directions collide with each other.

  2. Sickofidiots, poster #1, if that is not head-on, then what else is! The white jeep hit him head-on!! Gosh! How much clearer must the clip be to prove it???

  3. @Sickofidiots +1
    @Ronfromnj; because it wasn’t a head on collision, and it wasn’t high impact as is evident in the video.

  4. Do you know what else was a miracle? The white jeep was just missed by a truck that passed in the lane he had just backed through.

  5. You would think after last week’s tragedy you could think of a more appropriate log in name especially when you’re wrong. You know the saying if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck it must be a duck. If a car hit you head on it’s a head on collision anyway you look at it.

  6. Thank God nobody got hurt. rule number #2 pull off the highway where it safe to get out of your car not to sit in the middle of a highway
