  1. Father was not looking!
    Driver stopped and waited and father and son went the other way without acknowledging.
    Obnoxious behavior.

    Headline should have screemed “negligent father almost kills himself and son!”

  3. What I see is a Jewish father and son jay walking in middle of the street and after the driver stopped his car the Jewish father and son keep walking as if the driver of the car who is clearly shaken doesn’t even exist

    BH they had a Malach watching over them, but let’s not be so arrogant and respect our fellow human beings.

    Maybe next time something like those happens CV’S the driver won’t bother stopping if the frum don’t bother treating the very mentchlich driver with dignity and respect

    Remember in this case they caused this event to happen, the driver didn’t and now he is a victim by being completely shaken up. And they walk right by him like he doesn’t even exist

    Shame on the father

  4. What’s the point of this video! Has nobody heard of a human! “I can’t be guilty of an accident” or “it’s only the subhuman, illiterate who could make a mistake of this magnitude!”. Really? That the father was obnoxious by walking away? Have none of you heard the word confused, shaken, distorted? These are extremely common after an accident! Brothers, we’re in ellul! Please stop just bashing, trampling, degrading, elevating yourself by stepping on another person. Do you really think that even this father didn’t learn his lesson? yes, it could’ve been a costly one, but WE’RE ALL HUMAN! Every commentator here has already made mistakes of this magnitude in his life.

    Very low of matzav to post such an hateful article.

  5. I echo the other commentators before me. The father almost killed his kid. He then acts in a disgusting matter that is a true Chilul Hashem by not even stopping to apologize to the driver. He scampers off as if nothing happened. For shame!

  6. This father almost killed his innocent son, never mind himself. He should bentch goimel for his carelessness. And thank Hashem that his son walked away unhurt but maybe traumatized.
    Time for some new crossing the street warnings for the dumb amongst us.

    Matzav! PLEASE RE CHECK CLIP AND RE NAME TITLE. Careless Father Almost Kills Son and Himself Through Street Crossing Negligence

  8. Where is vision zero when you need it? This is why vision zero isn’t working. The mayor and the city is waging a one sided campaign against the drivers. Drive 25 mph. Enforce yield to pedestrians. This is may be good. (at least for the city’s pocketbook.) But if there is no mention of wearing reflective belts. Wait on the sidewalk until its your light. Don’t stand in the street (at night) waiting for a hitch. Don’t use your carriage to see if a car is coming Distracted walkers and crossers etc etc, then vision zero is not going to work.

  9. To Lessor:
    You’re probably right. He may of been from out of town or country. I know, in Eretz Yisroel, you have no choice but to cross in middle of the street because each one is a mile long. Regardless, they should of crossed at the light. The fact that they didn’t say anything or apologize to the driver, they were probably all shooken up and still shaking to compose themselves. Again, they were probably from out of country and we’re scared of what might of happened to them with the local law. Regardless of what transpired, Hashem was clearly watching over them and was shomer them. Now, they have to ask a shaila of why it almost happened to them and what’s the message.
