Brooklyn Boy Killed By Van One Month before Bar Mitzvah

Thursday, October 10th, 2013

A Brooklyn boy was struck and killed by a van Tuesday night, one month before his bar mitzvah.

Samuel Cohen-Eckstein, 12, was hit on Prospect Park West in the Park Slope neighborhood after chasing a ball into the street, the New York Daily News reported. The boy was pronounced dead soon after arriving at nearby Methodist Hospital.

The van driver remained at the scene and no summons was issued.

The Park Slope Stoop website reported that Cohen-Eckstein had been scheduled to mark his bar mitzvah at Kolot Chayeinu, a liberal congregation in Park Slope, and planned to donate a portion of his gifts to Heifer International.

His parents, Amy Cohen and Gary Eckstein, have spoken at community meetings “in support of traffic calming and the protected bike lane on Prospect Park West,” according to StreetsBlog.org.

Israel’s Keystone Cops Catch the Arab – after a Car Crash

Monday, June 24th, 2013

Israeli police once again have managed to get involved in a traffic accident while chasing after a fleeing Arab.

This time around, it ended up a lot better than earlier this year, when police in the south chased after an Arab vehicle that had fled a checkpoint. As the police chased, the speeding Arab vehicle was recklessly driven over to the wrong side of the road, crashing into another vehicle and killing its Jewish driver.

Monday’s crash occurred on Highway 5, which connects northern Tel Aviv with the north-south superhighway 6 (Kvish 6) and which continues into Samaria. The pursuing police car and the fleeing Arab car collided, causing moderate injuries to the Arab and lighter injuries to three policemen.
