The joint actions of an Israeli Police Officer and the Highway 6 operator managed to bring a vehicle out of control, without brakes, traveling at 140KPH (84MPH) to a safe stop.

The following brief video shows the out-of-control vehicle as well as the phone conversation taking place.

“This is the highway 6 operator. I need assistance immediately. There is a vehicle without brakes. He just passed the Nachshonim exit and is heading south.”

The highway operator then contacts police and they maintained a line and B’chasdei Hashem, the area was cleared, and the vehicle came to a stop without incident.

  1. How about a leak in the main brake line that controls EVERYTHING? Of course it is bechasdei HASHEM that they were able to stop the car without injuries. This shows us the need to travel with reasonable speed.
