Posted: 3 months ago
Tragic accident that occurred on Monday, January 4 at around 9:20 AM in Brooklyn, New York. Two young boys- ages four and six - were struck by a van after having just dropped them off at school.  Four-year-old Yoshi Balaban sadly succumbed to his injuries. The New York Police Department reported that a man in his 70s struck the children near 20th Ave. in Bensonhurst. It is unclear whether he knew that he struck the kids. Sadly, Yoshi was pronounced dead at the scene. Yoshi's older brother was transported to a local medical center with serious injuries. The driver of the van was reportedly  issued a  red light camera ticket, and two school-zone speed camera tickets since 2016.  We send our thoughts and prayers to the family of this tragically young victim.
