Back on August 15, 2022, a head-on crash in Woodbury, New York resulted in the death of 62 year old Monticello resident IkSong Jin and 5 injuries.

The driver responsible for the crash was driving New Square Grand Rabbi David Twersky at the time.

Prosecutors say that the young driver lost control of his Ford Explorer while speeding, crossed the double yellow line and injured four others in his vehicle as well. The 81 year old Rebbe was not injured.

After a year-long criminal investigation, he was originally charged with five traffic tickets for speeding, passing on the right, driving to the left of pavement markings, moving from lane unsafely and driving across hazardous markings.

More importantly, he was also charged with reckless driving, which, unlike simple traffic citations, is a criminal offense which could result in jail time and a criminal record.

However, earlier this week, Orange County District Attorney Dave Hoovler dropped the charge, explaining to the Woodbury Town Court judge that it was a "filing error" in that "state police charged the driver with reckless driving by mistake," and that ultimately "they found no reason to press criminal charges in the crash."

The driver is due back in Woodbury Town Court next week regarding the traffic ticket citations.

Jewish judges and Jewish lawyers protecting their own

That is all this is about

A man's life is worth a speeding ticket

The courts should be ashamed of themselves

My condolences to the family
