Princeton Man Charged in Crash that Caused Death of Rabbi

By Lependorf & Silverstein on April 8, 2013

Courtesy of, after driving his BMW at a high rate of speed and causing the crash that resulted in the death of a former Princeton University rabbi, a Princeton man has been charged with death by auto.  Bail for the 20-year-old Princeton man has been set at $100,000, according to a police spokesperson who added that the investigation of the crash that occurred in Princeton is still ongoing. The driver who allegedly caused the crash remains in the custody of police at Capital Health Regional Medical Center where his condition has been listed as good.

The incident was a chain reaction.  The BMW veered into another lane before crashing into an empty Toyota Camry.  The Camry then struck a Toyota Prius.  The victim was thrown from the car and was found to be unresponsive when emergency responders arrived at the scene.  Police reported that the BMW was going so fast that it pushed the empty Camry approximately 500 feet along the highway before it hit the Prius.

The deceased was 74 years of age.  He retired in 2003 from Princeton University where he had served as director of the university’s Center for Jewish Life.  He died as he was entering a parked car near Riverside Elementary at 9:42 a.m. Thursday, March 28, 2013.

The family of the accused man has refused comment, but his attorney said that a hearing date has not yet been set.  Services for the victim were held on Easter Sunday, March 31.
