8-year-old Struck and Killed by School Bus

Tuesday, September 16th, 2014

An eight year old boy was struck and killed Tuesday morning in a school parking lot by a school bus in Kibbutz Kfar Menachem, near the southern city of Kiryat Malachi.

The accident occurred as the boy was crossing at a crosswalk. The driver said he did not see the child, according to Israel public radio. Although medical and emergency rescue responders were at the scene immediately, resuscitation attempts failed to revive the boy.

Teachers and students at the child’s school were badly traumatized by the incident, which came only a day after a six year old girl was struck and killed by a mini-bus in the northern Jerusalem neighborhood of Shuafat. The driver of the mini-bus was arrested and questioned. The investigation is continuing in Kibbutz Kfar Menachem.

Six Killed, 16 Injured in ‘Failed Brakes’ Crash in Haifa

Wednesday, April 10th, 2013

Six people were killed and 16 were injured in Haifa late Wednesday afternoon when a run-away truck whose brakes had failed sped downhill and crushed pedestrians and at least five vehicles, some of which burst into fire.

The speeding vehicle was headed downhill and sped out of control for 600 feet, hitting people, cars and traffic signs, until it finally was stopped by a fence.

Last year, a young girl was the sole survivor of a crash that killed her parents and six sisters and brothers after the car’s brakes failed.

The driver of the truck in Wednesday’s crash was an Arab, raising fears that he carried out a terrorist attacks, but police have all but ruled out that possibility.

“At this moment in time we don’t believe it was a terror attack,” Israel Police spokesman Mickey Rosenfeld told The Times of Israel. ”We strongly believe it was an accident based on findings at the scene and eyewitnesses.”

Magen David Adom declared a mass casualty event, and screaming sirens of ambulances brought the dead and injured to Haifa hospitals after rescue workers extricated them from the debris and after firefighters were able to extinguish the flames.

The driver, as often happens when others are killed, did not suffer serious injuries. Police have detained him for questioning.

Doctors said the baby, “Tinok ben Raizel.” probably will survive. Already termed a “miracle baby,” he will be named after his father, according to friends of the family.

The tragedy has stunned the Satmar community in Williamsburg, where Nachman and Raizel Glauber were expecting their first child. Raizel complained that she could not feel her unborn baby’s movements, and the couple hired a cab to rush them to the hospital.

They never arrived alive.

A BMW crashed into the taxi and fled the scene, leaving the couple dead and the cab driver injured but in stable condition.

The impact of the crash threw Raizel out of the vehicle. Rescue workers had to cut open the cab in order to extricate the father, and only afterwards did they notice the mother lying under a parked tractor trailer. Medics rushed her to the hospital, where doctors delivered the baby boy from the womb of the mother, who was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital.

The young Glaubers were buried Sunday afternoon.

Police are searching for the hit-and-run driver.
