The accident took place this afternoon in front of 18 Phyllis Terrace, a multi-family house near the massive Vizhnitz synagogue.
The Ramapo Police Department said that Gitty Rosenberg suffered fatal injuries in the accident involving a 2017 Toyota Sienna which took place at 3:37 PM. The toddler was rushed by Hatzolah to Good Samaritan Hospital where she was pronounced dead.
Chasidic men wearing Chesed Shel Emes vests were busy at the scene shortly after the accident, scrubbing at the sidewalk and driveway in front of the multi-family home with cleaning fluids.
Crowds gathered at the scene, which was roped off by yellow crime scene taped affixed to cruises from the Ramapo Police Department, a delivery truck from Rockland Kosher supermarket and a man who appeared to be the driver of the truck, both roped off inside the accident scene.
A woman who stood near the yellow tape with red rimmed eyes said that she could not provide any details of the accident out of respect for the family, but was overheard telling another bystander that it was “just an accident.”
