Lakewood, NJ - Two crash victims remained in critical condition Tuesday after being injured in a traffic accident involving a car striking a school bus that tipped onto its side, pinning a girl on her bicycle.

Authorities identified the girl as Fabiola Moralez, 16. She and a passenger in the car, Sarah Brisk, 22, were reported in critical condition Tuesday at Jersey Shore University Medical Center, Neptune, as a result of injuries they suffered Monday.

The bus from Congregation Rachmstrvka had no children aboard when it was struck at the center on the driver’s side by the car at Monmouth Avenue and East County Line Road about 5 p.m. Monday. police said.

The car was driven by Simon Benedict, 22, of Zurich, Switzerland.

The driver of the school bus, Chaim Adler, 27, here, was able to climb out the window of the overturned bus.

He was driving safely, he just didn't see the stop sign. He is human and it was an accident.

Excuse me, if was driving safely the damaged car could not possibly look like that.

It is clear there was an accident. Based on the information I have seen I can not determine who was at fault, I am not as expert as the experts that know.

Perhaps all STOP signs should include pavement marking as well. This is so important that if pavement is fixed by anybody in NYC they must immediately place pavement markings.

You are not excused. He was driving at the speed limit and yes that caused the car to look the way it did.

thats an ignorant statement. if you read the article he could have been parked and it would be the same. The bus drove over the car and the passenger needed to be extracted.

I too agree with number 4, first of all if he went through a Stop Sign he is immediately guilty, intentional or not. Secondly, in order for a car to push over a school bus it had to be done with excessive speed. The police and lawyers will figure that all out. Nebech for the driver for the guilt he will always carry with him.

Why is it that every time there is a report of an accident or tragedy here on VIN, the foremost forensic experts in the heimeshe community immediately run to their computers to post their analysis of the cause of the accident and give us musar about what to do and not to do? At the same time, all of our big "online gadolim" tell us why the Ebeshter caused the accident and what sorts of tshuvah we need to do to prevent a recurrence". How about a less elegant view of the world...i.e. XXXX happens for reasons unknown.

#1 and #4, I sencerely believe that it is people like you who are the cause for such tragedies in our midsts. You both have much to learn about the severity of life and its repercussions. At the risk of sounding like a teacher scolding preschoolers: Shame on you!!! How dare you judge at a time when many families have been broken by this awful tragedy?! How dare you say ONE word besides comfort or support when the fate of a couple newly engaged hangs in the air, along with the fragile life of a one- week- ago-glowing Kallah?! HAVE YOU NO HEART AT ALL? Or are you just shallow enough to look at things as an opportunity for gossip and blabbering instead of trying to do something for a zechus for a refuah for this Kallah in critical condition?
i am sometimes stumped at trying to figure out if the posts are made vy young children as opposed to mature, though-out adults. i only wish you one thing-May G-D bless you that you never be on the other end, and hear rthe gossip that others might have to say...for there are many more like you.

I agree with you partially. Maybe now isn't the best time to learn from this tragedy. But I still have to ponder -when is the best time? What will it take to teach the Frum community to buckle up, to drive safely and within the speed limits, not to talk or text on cells while driving, and bicyclists to wear helmets? When you can answer these questions, then you can come here and criticize those posters. They are at least bringing these life and death issues to the forefront. I haven't seen anyone besides posters on frum blogs and letters to some ad booklets, even talk about these safety issues!

"Maybe now isnt the best time..."?? Have you heard of the expression "There's a time and place for everything" or the Chazal "Davar beito mah tov"? What do you mean?? How can one be so heartless as to even have such thoughts cross his mind upon hearing this devastating news?! How can such trivialities be the initial reaction?! Do you think God needs extra "help" on the "police force" up there? The Satan seems to be doing quite a fine job. Believe me, these issues have been/are being brought to the forefront. And no, judging this heartbroken Chassan or bad-mouthing the driving in that town, will not help matters. And I promise you, that you and I, both know that very well. People like these, I truly believe are bored, and yes, have a frightening shallow view on life, and how it can change from one happy minute to a devastating next-Misimcha l'yagon.
