86 Year Old Man Struck On Empire Blvd

Photos by Chaim Hershkop

At around 10:50 this morning an 86 year old man was struck by a 15 passenger van at the intersection of Empire Blvd and Kingston Ave. Apparently the elderly man began crossing the street when the pedestrian signal was red and the large van could not stop. The force of the impact took the man across the entire intersection.

Hatzalah was called but a FDNY EMS ambulance that was passing had seen the incident take place stopped to provide medical assistance.

The man, 86 year old Aron Feldman, was taken to Kings County Hospital where he was listed in critical condition. CrownHeights.info has been contacted by R. Avrohom Leider director of “Ahavas Chesed” in request to help find a family member. The man speaks English, Yiddish and Russian. Anyone with information is requested to call R. Leider at (917) 852-5555

    A young girl was struck while getting on to a school bus in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn this morning.

    Eyewitness News has learned the seven-year-old girl was hit on Marcy Avenue and Middleton Street just before 8:30 a.m. She was rushed to Brooklyn Hospital and pronounced dead.
    Investigators say the girl was getting on a school bus at the time of the accident. The girl may have been hit by a passing car.

    Several witnesses told detectives that when the vehicle passed the school bus, its lights were flashing. Authorities said they are still investigating.

    As a bus driver I see that 95% of people don’t respect the Red flasshing lights on the bus ( Yidden and Goyim alike).

    People think if they can get away with it (if no police are around) then it’s O.K.
    People most understand that it’s about safty (and not just another law).

    This girl was killed b/c someone ran throw a red flasshing light.
    The man that was hit today ran when his light was red.

    I was thoght that "wait a minute and you"ll live many more minutes".

    [I watch from my bus how many kids try to run the red light. I see it alot on the corner of E.P. and Brooklyn (by O.T.) when I tell the kids that what they are doing is wrong and dangers, they look at me with a "OK….Duh".

    That what I mean by:
    "RED MEANS- STOP
    GREEN MEANS- GO"

    Unfortunately, we frum yidden tend to ignore the world, and there is a higher rate of accidents (especially burns) in our circles than in pretty much any other circles. Let’s keep an eye on our kids, my friends! This is serious stuff.

    You are doing the right thing,
    keep it up.
    Let them beep.

    By the way, you most stop ONLY when the RED FLASHSING lights on TOP of the bus is on.
    Some drivers will put on the YELLOW lights before they stop, if it is safe they will not put on the RED FLASHING lights, but instead put there HAZERTS.
    Just Proceed with caution .

    Everybody should have a happy, healthy and SAFE summer.

    Again

    It’s going to be a long, hot summer. Start acting responsibly, drive carefully, and watch your kids. School’s over & kids play on the streets. Let the Schorrim have the bikes, ipods, whatever.

    Your kids can’t be replaced…stuff can.
