    New crosswalks are to blame

    New traffic and sidewalks are the cause for this death.
    Michael Bloomberg moved the sidewalks out into the middle of the roads, so now all you need is a small slip and ur under the wheels of a garbage truck.

    BH. BDE. There should be signs in hebrew on all road junctions in crown heights, warning of the danger of going against the lights. and to go only by the lights. Specialy outside the EP. mikva, where I have seen people go out of the mikva, and try to cross EP, at that place, and not to go where the traffic lights are located.

    terrible tragedy

    While cleaning snow is VERY important – crucial, if such a terrible tragedy befalls our community r”l we should turn to Hashen and cry out – and not look for some “ice” to blame it on.

    Hashem runs things, the ice may have been the “keily-tool” for the tragedy…
    Let’s not loose focus.

    This is a terrible tragedy for us all

    He was crossing on green. The truck was turning. I think there are many corners where it is safer to cross on red because no vehicle comes speeding on a turn when you are crossing on red. (Better able to see to see what is coming toward the crosswalk).

    BS”D to 29 You missed my point. We the clal are always blamed and the Rabbonin tell us we need more Ahavas Israel. I say the clal exhibits extreme Ahavas Israel and the only ones who need to do tshuvah are the Rabbonim themselves. It starts at the top. Who can heed there admonitions when they cannot get along? I don’t care what the ” reason(s)”are- there is absolutely no good reason for their not getting along

    As someone who knew Gedalya personally, I would like to share a few words. Gedalya, a bright boy from the Ukraine, became a baal teshuva with the help of the Rebbe’s shluchim. In yeshiva he served as a source of inspiration for all that knew him as a masmid in learning, and always looking to encourage others to grow in the ways of a chossid. All done with a smile.

    what is a garbage truck doing at 9 am in Crown Heights? The driver is angry he needs to work on Sunday. He should be checked for a hangover from Saturday night. The driver is the killer he should be blamed. You can see how close he is to the south side of the sidewalk he made a sharp turn. There is ice buildup so the people stand after the ice. He stopped after the rear tires ran over the body. If he hit the Bochur with the front of the vehicle he should stop before the rear tires ran… Read more »

    Excuse the chutzpah but if the Rebbe would farbreng tonight I daresay it would not be about ice, lights and garbage trucks but about cries of pain and sadness and the demand for the Geula. Maybe discussing the name of Gedalia, how Hashem is great but it would be even greater with the light of Hashem revealed and we can openly see His Goodness….

    Stay focusesd. Direct your outrage to Gd for treating His children like this. Channel your energy to help the family and help one another.

    According to the surveillance footage (from what might be Kingston pizza), it looks like the 3 Bochurim were talking on the corner. The light was green for both the truck and pedestrians. As the truck was in middle of turning the bochur started walking backwards onto the crosswalk, apparently still facing his friends and not the road, and walked right into the side of the truck. The truck was still moving, and he got pulled under the back wheels. It was not the trucks fault, as he turned while noone was on or approaching the sidewalk. But neither was it… Read more »

    Obviously everything is from heaven. We still have to make our streets as safe as possible. The corners in CH were all recently enlarged to protude, officially it was deemed safer.

    How can anyone be so sure that there is only ONE “answer” ? Of course it is completely crucial that the Rabbonim get their act together for the sake of our future, but there are also far too many individuals in this community who have lost their moral, ethical, menchlikite, and emesdike Yiddshkeit compass. There is a mother & father today in Ukraine whose hearts were destroyed – not the right time to point fingers at others but certainly the right time to look deep and without delusions into our own behavior and fix it TODAY.

    #105 wrong message, wrong place, wrong time

    How terrible of you to preach at this time!! Clean up your own house and keep to yourself at this time of deep shock and grief
    What we need now is for each and every one of us to look inside and reflect, not to call each other out
    May we only share in happy occasions

    Also as far as sidewalk I believe he was not standing on sidewalk when he slipped. Im curious to know how fast the truck drove and if he slowed down enough. It looks like he was neglegent in both aspects

    Change the Law - no traffic and pedestrians share the crosswalk

    It’s always scary to cross as a pedestrian and share the crosswalk with the turning right or left cars ….
    Change the law , let pedestrian cross and then let the cars take right /left turns ….

    BD"E BUT why did the truck turn

    BD"E BUT why did the truck turn

    i live on carroll and i’ve never seen a garbage truck turning on that corner

    it always goes on kingston and takes the garbage cans from the corners and it takes residential garbage from the alley not like montgomery where the garbage is placed on the street

    the sanitation worker is 1000000000000000% wrong

    The Belzer Rebbe’s Rebbetzin stood by his side and supported him in all that he did. When he built his famous shul, he remained awake for 1000 nights, and his Rebbetzin stayed awake with him to help him fight sleep. When she passed away, the Belzer Rebbe was heartbroken. At her hesped he said: “Everything that I have, I owe to her. If I was only able to, I would bring her back to life. But I can’t. “But You, Eibishter,” he concluded, “You have the ability to resurrect Your wife, the כנסת ישראל, and to restore her to life.… Read more »

    Teachers TEACH YOUR STUDENTS TO LOOK BOTH WAYS BEFORE THEY CROSS.
    NOT TO STAND AT THE EDGE OF THE CURB.

    He didn't slip- the truck backed into him

    Read the article. He was crossing at the crosswalk, there WAS NO ICE at that spot- per the article. It’s pretty clear that the truck backed from carroll back onto kingston slightly round a corner and into him. It was completely the driver’s responsibility to make sure that no pedestrians were there on this very busy intersection. I hope the matter is pursued immediately and to the full extent of the law so that this will be prevented from recurring G”f.

    Our heart is with his family. yet I do agree with 105 history teaches us that HaShem hurts us when we aren’t as good as we should be. Lub have a very wrong respect for shul ! It’s a place to pray and thank HaShem to talk to HaShem and ONLY HaShem it’s not a men’s club we all must work on our selves . Also we never know when our last day will be so every day must in our minds be our last so we must take ADVANTAGE and do the most mitzvos we can

    Everyone should go to the Levaya

    Everyone in Crown heights should make it a priority to go to the Levaya, the Yeshivos and high schools should send their students. The shops on Kingston should close for the hour and go to 770. This young Bachurs life and tragic passing should be an inspiration to all of us and be the last Levaya in Gauls.

    Stop jumping to conclusions. Watch the surveillance footage

    There was no slipping on ice, the truck was not backing up, it did not turn on a red. The 3 bochurim were standing on the curb, not crossing. After the truck was in middle of the turn, the niftar stepped off the curb without checking. The front right corner of the truck hit him, pulling him under the truck. Not the fault of the ice nor the driver.

    Where exactly did you see the surveillance footage?

    Moshiach must come immediately! Until that very moment, see to it to be quiet in shul during daavening, chazoras hashatz, layning, kaddish etc. There is plenty of time to catch up on the latest aterwards! It is not so hard, it will make a difference!
