I hope everyone is okay!
I wonder if it involved cell phone use or texting!!
May they all be gezunt.
Holiday season is a dangerous time;
a Kol Hadrochim bechezkas zakono
b there is less torah and Tefilloh to protect us
c people tend to be lax in Kashrus, Znius Tefilloh Bezibur during the holidays
d Young and inexperienced drivers putting themselves and others in danger
It is therefore imperative to utilise the extra time as much as possible for Chinuch Habonim and bonaus and limud hatorah.
good points 3. 1, texting is dangerous whether or not it was involved here, the only thing gained by this wondering is whether or not we can yell at somebody in a hospital bed ” see you shouldn’t have texted”. Keep wondering
