Rabbi Yoseph Eisenbach, Director of Chabad Lubavitch of Northwest Connecticut, is safe and back home for Shabbos, COLlive was told Friday.
The Shliach was involved in a car crash and was said to be transported to Charlotte Hungerford Hospital, according to the local newspaper The American-Republican.
But Mendel Eisanbach of New York said his brother was not hospitalized and was busy preparing a regular Shabbos meal for his weekly guests.
Police said James Mattice Sr., 50, of Terryville was at the wheel of a Nissan Altima headed east on Rt. 202 around 1:20 p.m. when Eisenbach, driving alone in a Toyota Avalon, pulled out in front of the oncoming car from Meadow Street and was struck broadside.
Eisenbach complained of back and neck pain, the newspaper said. He was seen moving his arms and communicating with rescue workers at the scene.
Police closed Rt. 202 for almost an hour, and diverted traffic on to West Street until the accident scene was cleared.
“Baruch Hashem, everything is fine,” his brother Mendel added.
