TEHILLIM: 11-Year-Old Jerusalem Boy in Serious Condition After Hit and Run [UPDATED]


An 11-year-old boy was in serious condition Sunday night, after he was struck by a car in a hit-and-run accident on Golda Meir Blvd. in Jerusalem.

Emergency medical personnel from United Hatzalah and Magen David Adom responded to the scene and provided medical care to the child before evacuating him to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem.

Police investigators have since reported locating the vehicle in Givat Ze’ev. It is reported that police have learned the identity of the driver who fled the scene, a Jewish male in his 20s. He has not turned himself in and police are continuing to search for him.

A spokesperson for Shaare Zedek Hospital on Monday morning reports that the child remains in critical condition, and he remains medically sedated and intubated, in an intensive care unit.

HaGaon HaRav Chaim Kanievsky Shlita instructed the family to add the name Chaim.
