9 Hurt in Hasidic Camp Bus Crash in Poconos
— An accident involving a mini-bus bringing Jewish campers home from a trip in Pennsylvania injured at least nine teenagers.
The Brooklyn-bound bus flipped over and rolled onto its side around 2:30 a.m. Friday on Route 423 in the Pocono Mountains, News 12 Brooklyn reported.
The driver, identified as Bernard Zitroenbaum, 32, of Brooklyn, was uninjured according to the Times-Union. Zitroenbaum’s wife said the passengers were from Sanz Klausenberg Summer Camp in Woodbourne, New York, and had been on a trip.
Sanz-Klausenberg is a Hasidic sect, whose members live primarily in the Borough Park section of Brooklyn.
Zitroenbaum’s wife described the injuries as a broken foot and “a lot of bad scratches on the head.”
