Small Bronx church deals with tragedy, loss in wake of crash

The Joy Christian Fellowship, in the Bronx, is in mourning today after a minivan carrying 14 members of the congregation crashed on the New York State Thruway yesterday afternoon, with deadly results.

Six people, thus far, have been officially declared dead in the accident, among them Bishop Simon White and his wife, Zelda. Three of the eight passengers were reportedly airlifted to Westchester County Medical Center. Meanwhile, four others were transported to Good Samaritan Hospital Hospital, in Suffern. The driver was airlifted to St. Francis Hospital, in Poughkeepsie.

This is a terrible time of loss for the families and congregation at Joy Christian Fellowship. And, the survivors have endured a terrible experience. The prayers of the community at New York Theological Seminary go out to these survivors and families at this very difficult time.
