Bochurim Flee Scene After Crashing Rental Car

Last night, a rental car reportedly driven by Bochurim crashed into several parked cars and flipped over, after which the vehicle’s occupants fled the scene.

The incident occurred at around midnight Wednesday night, on Union Street between Kingston and Brooklyn Aves.

Witnesses called the police, but by the time they arrived at the scene the occupants of the vehicle had fled.

Police cordoned off the scene of the accident and documented the damage. They also found a weapon, later discovered to be a BB gun, near the crashed vehicle.

Witnesses said that the car was rented from a local informal car rental service, as evidenced by a part of the shattered window with a sticker on it in both English and Hebrew informing occupants that smoking in the vehicle is prohibited.

Police sources said that the vehicle was not reported stolen at the time of the crash, and that the incident is being investigated.

I was there right after it happened and the police were saying that the car was stolen from President street by two Goyim

OMG……union street is so narrow…..how did they get up the speed to flip over?……future ravs (or mikveh cleaners) ….. so much for taking responsibility

The Israeli Bochurim come here “to learn” and instead go crazy with their new found freedom.

Close Down the illegal car rentals in the hood

Hogging parking spaces on the street, rather than having a lot, like any such business should. Renting to people who shouldn’t be driving.

someone has to know what these bachurim are doing. they are usually away from their homes and need someone similar to a parent to be watching them. rosh yeshiva and mashgiach are one thing, and something like a House-mother is whats needed in this case.
we cannot have this. The bachurim aren’t learning proper hanhaga w/o being supervised and nurtured, and remember, its also for their safety, as well as the fact that they will IY”H be balabatim one day. Keep our people on a sensibel and healthy path to success

For all you witnesses, how about you go tell the police instead of just commenting here.

#17 Comment By Comment On August 25, 2017 @ 9:51 am

Maybe the bochurim were black?

#18 Comment By In all seriousness – Please correct title ASAP On August 25, 2017 @ 12:53 pm

Based on accounts here, this doesn’t seem like it was done by bochurim. And while the car wasn’t reported stolen at the time, it might have been just recently stolen and not yet reported.

Any updates? Any arrests? Should be easy to find the culprits just check security camera footage.

#20 Comment By Moishe pipek On August 25, 2017 @ 11:49 am

Two arabs dressed as bachurim took the car.

#21 Comment By Ma Rabbi On August 25, 2017 @ 11:52 am

I apologize for my previous remark.
It seems that the perpetrators were black.
