Shaindy Mashinsky Route 59 Accident Victim Dies

IMG-20160824-WA0235
Route 59 accident victim, Shaindy Mashinsky, 18, a daughter of one of the pillars of chessed in the Monsey community, Rabbi Yosef Mashimsky Shlita, Menahel of Yeshiva Bais Dovid in Monsey.

The nifteres was critically injured by a vehicle on Wednesday night and Hatzolah paramedics transported her to Westchester Trauma Center where she has been fighting for her life. 

Shaindy’s mother, Mrs. Breindel Leah Mashinsky a”h, passed away a number of years ago.

Shaindy was a granddaughter of Rav Hershel z”l and Rebbetzin Malka Mashinsky a”h. Rav Hershel was the co-founder of Kupath Ezrah of Rockland County and a longtime rebbi at Yeshiva of Spring Valley who was renowned for his expertise in the field of chinuch and his unceasing involvement in tzorchei tzibbur. Their son, Rav Yosef, has carried on that tradition with his work in the world of chinuch and his efforts in the realm of chesed.
Tragically, he has now suffered the loss of his daughter some years after first losing his rebbetzin.
Shaindy succumbed to wounds sustained in an accident that took place at about 9 p.m. last night on Route 59 in Monsey. She was critically injured and was taken by Hatzolah to Westchester Trauma Center, where doctors fought to save her life. With the guidance of the Skulener Rebbe, the name Alte was added and Yidden davened for Alte Shaindel bas Breindel Leah.
The funeral for Miss Mashinsky is scheduled to take place today at 11 AM at Kehal Avriechim - Rav Schnnebalg, 31 Dover Terrace Monsey.

Must be because of the lack of tznius and BH grill.

Stop taking a ride on a sad story, however even though I don't know the details of the story what's being done about safety?
Where are the leaders?
Anyone that drives through Monsey sees the danger

Absolutely!
but Torah says we have to prevent what we can and the situation here in town is total neglect.

when will people especially in places with little or no lights on the street start wearing reflectors or reflector belts.

No. It is not just to cry for the loss but to do something about it. The Rambam says when tragedy strikes the community we have to search our actions. Otherwise? It is CRUELTY. Of course to mourn, but we are to learn from this.

The developers in Monsey bribed the town so there is "les din v'les dayan"
In any other municipality, the town would have required the developers to build a walking bridge over the road ...
Route 59 needs about 10 such walkways ...

I will be happy with 4 on 59, and 2 or 3 on main st.
Is there a way to petition them?

Again, No. "Yeish Din V'Yeish Dayan".
In general, there is a very frightening mentality here. Do what is just. Otherwise, there are catastrophes. Fact.
I typically don't write like this, but @ this pt. "Higia Zman". It is appropriate. Ignorance kills. Cruelty kills.

I think Rabbi Mashinsky's wife was also hit and passed away on corner Rt. 59 and Main Street.
