2 Car Pile Up, Literally

At around 4:00pm this afternoon a Minivan driven by a yiddishe driver was making a right turn from Albany Ave onto Crown St ended up on the hood of another car. The driver of the Minivan said that he was making his turn when the other car driven by a yiddishe woman all of a sudden pulled out of a parking spot while the woman said she was standing and he was making the turn to fast.

FDNY and Police responded and had a large crowd of children just being dismissed from Lubavitcher Yeshiva located right at that corner. B”H no one was hurt.

    I never realised that the police provided towing service complete with an armed officer driving the tow truck! Thank G-d no one was badly injured…Good photos too!

    A “he said, she said” situation (quite literally.)

    Typically in this case, the minivan driver will be deemed non responsible since the other driver was coming out a parking lot, and there is no admission of speed.

    How does a van end up on top of a car???

    Hope they’re both insured. Still, the damage doesn’t look too bad.

    My building looks quite good, doesn’t it?

    You’ve got to be really talented to do that! Truth is… it happens. You think you see, you think you check but you just don’t see everthing.

    Look, nobody was at fault. The woman in the menora car had latkes and apple sauce on her mind. The man in a hurry wanted to make mincha by an avel. Is that a good senario? What else could it have been…dizziness, stupidity or maybe on a cell phone???
