Two Brooklyn teenagers were killed on their way to their Connecticut yeshiva when the van in which they were riding flipped on the highway.
Eli Shonbron, 16, and Dani King, 15, died at the scene, according to a Connecticut State Police report, after their 1998 Ford Club Wagon slid into the embankment on I-84 near Danbury early Monday. The van was filled with 11 students traveling to Yeshiva Ateres Shmuel in Waterbury, about 35 miles from the accident scene.
The nine survivors were hospitalized with what was described as “non-life-threatening injuries.”
The students were returning to school after being sent home to Brooklyn because their the yeshiva lost power during last week’s freakish snowstorm.
