    It’s o.k. No one is holding their breath to learn every last detail with regards to the MVA that happened today on our Shabbos Kodesh.

  • Jim Watson says:

    Thanks for alerting me at 12:20 am about an accident that happened 5-1/2 hours ago

  • RebRambo says:

    Hey Jimbo, two answers to your cynical remark:
    1. Perhaps the authorities weren’t releasing enough details to be published.
    2. There is a good chance that TLS is run by 7th Day Adventists who observe the Sabbath and weren’t able to post this earlier.

    Just take out a Book of Psalms and pray

  • Fellow HUMAN says:

    To fair minded; you should be ashamed of yourself for saying such a terrible thing. Perhaps if you knew the people involved you would be singing a different tune. Have some humanity! That being said, my heart goes out to all those involved and hope everyone makes a quick and speedy recovery!

  • Mayo says:

    Just a thought as to why there are these major accidents on shabbos. The roads are empty! People don’t get a chance to get into fatal accidents when cedar bridge is backed up due to standard lakewood traffic.

  • T says:
