Two people have been killed in a car accident in New City, NY that also left a number of people injured.

The victims were R’ Aharon Shmuel Deutsch z”l and his son-in-law, R’ Shlomo Birnhack z”l, both of Shikun Skver, who were traveling to a wedding in New York City with 9 other family members.

The incident occurred on Route 45, right outside of Shikun Skver, down the block from Ateres Charna Hall.

The 15-passenger van carrying eleven members of two Skverer families was on the way to a chasunah in New York City when it slammed into a tree, trapping a number of the vehicle’s occupants, who were extricated by Hatzolah and other emergency personnel and taken to local hospitals – including Nyack Hospital, Good Samaritan and Westchester Medical Center – having suffered severe trauma.

Several of the car’s occupants remain in critical condition.

It is not clear why the van veered off the road or what caused the accident.

All are asked to daven for the complete recovery of Devorah Yehudis bas Esther and Esther bas Rivkah.

  1. May all those who were injured have a refuah shleima teikaf umiyad mamesh.
    Not to make light of what happened, but I think it’s important to point out. For those of us who are maminim know that everything is decreed by Borei Olam. Not a single person died from Coronavirus. They died because it was nigzar last Rosh Hashana that they were not going to live out the year. As we see from this maaseh, harbeh shluchim lamakom. It can come from diseases, car accidents, falling tree branches, heart attacks, strokes, infections, etc etc R”L! When I see these chachomim who are going to extremes ( I’m not talking about normal seicheldika ways) to lock themselves up with every possible conceivable method of safety and security, are completely missing the message. Are they that silly to think that HKB”H can’t get them in any other way?! Do they think that they can out-smart the Aibishter?!

    • I am no chacham but our family has been very careful, which I expect you would rephrase as going to extremes.

      If I am destined to die I will, and as you say, it will be a tree branch or I’ll slip and fall. Same if someone else, in my family or otherwise, is destined to die. But it will not be that anyone suffers or dies because I carelessly attached them the Coronavirus in an avoidable manner. I feel confident to tell everyone, including HKBH, that I acted in good conscience. I don’t care if you consider me silly.

      BDE and Refua Shleima to the injured in this horrific accident

    • …AND YOU , MR TALMUD CHACHAM, THE TALMUD STATES MRS SHABBOS , A PERSON SHOULD NOT STAND UNDER A NOT STURDY WALL BECAUSE BECAUSE IT MIGHT FALL. I WONT BOTHER TO BRING THE MEFORSHIM
