Rav Olshin Unscathed Following Accident On GSP


rav-yeruchem-olshinHeading from Monsey, NY, to Lakewood, NJ, the car in which Rav Yeruchem Olshin, rosh yeshiva of Beth Medrash Govoha in Lakewood, was traveling spun out of control and ploughed into a guard rail on Garden State Parkway South.

The streets in New York and New Jersey were slippery, but it is not clear if the inclement weather is to blame for the accident.

Rav Olshin, boruch Hashem , emerged unscathed. The vehicle sustained serious damage and had to be towed. Rav Olshin was transported to Lakewood in another vehicle.
