Toddler identified in fatal accidentPosted: Updated:
Ramapo police have identified the 15-month-old girl who was fatally struck by a minivan driven by her father Monday in Monsey.
Police say Gitty Rosenberg was outside her home on Phyllis Terrace when her father, Levi Rosenberg, ran over her in his 2017 Toyota Sienna.
The accident happened right across the street from a synagogue as neighbors watched in horror. "He told me, he didn't see the baby," says witness Gene Beauvais.
The girl was taken to Good Samaritan Hospital in Suffern where she died from her injuries. She was buried Monday night, as per Hasidic Jewish custom.
