    One yeshiva student who was standing with on the edge of a busy Suffern road is dead and another is in the hospital after being struck in a chain reaction crash involving a car and a minivan.

    Ramapo Police said that the accident took place at 11:50 PM Wednesday night on Route 202 between Wilder and Limekiln roads and involved two cars, driving eastbound on roadway.

    A 2008 Honda driven by 19 year old Tzvi Hakakian of Monsey had slowed down, possibly to turn into a driveway, when it was sideswiped by a 2016 Lexus that attempted to pass the Honda on the left side.

    The Honda continued traveling eastward while the Lexus, driven by 24 year old Jonathan Mosquera of Suffern, veered off to the left, crossing the westbound lane of the highway and hitting two pedestrians who were standing near the edge of a driveway.

    17 year old Marcus Tawil was taken by Hatzolah to Good Samaritan Hospital where he was later pronounced dead.  David Maldonado was transported to Westchester Medical Center where he was admitted in serious condition.  Both drivers were taken to Good Samaritan Hospital and treated for minor injuries.

    Lieutenant Mark Emma of Ramapo Police said that the area where the accident took place was a no passing zone.

    Test performed at the accident scene on Mosquera, an off duty officer with the Newburgh Police Department, indicated that neither drugs nor alcohol played any part in the accident.

    Police are continuing their investigation to determine the cause of the accident which took place near a dormitory for Sephardic yeshiva, Tiferet Torah.

    There have been several fatal accidents on the Suffern portion of Route 202 in the recent past which has no sidewalks and few streetlights.

    “It is the most dangerous road in town,” Emma told VIN News. “The speed limit is 50 miles per hour on much of the road.  It is dark, has no shoulders and no escape route for a car. It is a tough road.”

    Please say Tehillim for David Yosef ben Leah.
