A boy was struck by a car while crossing the street in Ashdod Monday, yet emerged with only minor injuries.

Close circuit television footage of the accident shows two young boys running across a crosswalk on Yehuda HaNassi Street in Ashdod, when suddenly a car slams into the younger of the two boys after the driver failed to stop at the crosswalk.

“It was a terrifying sight,” said a local man who witnessed the accident. “In this case, the story ended with a miracle. But how long will it take us to learn our lesson? Are we waiting for a terrible tragedy before we wake up?”
