Chanukah miracle in Kew Gardens

Daily News:

A jaw-dropping chain-reaction crash in Queens yesterday hurled a toddler out of his car seat and through a window, cut three pedestrians down and left three vehicles in shambles - but miraculously took no lives, police said.
"It is the time of Chanukah, the time of miracles, and this was a miracle," declared Eliseva Gazal, 34, whose minivan started the spectacular smashup, witnesses said.
Five people were injured in the Kew Gardens Hills accident - including Gazal's 2-year-old son - but none suffered more than bumps, bruises and bad scrapes, police said.
Investigators said it all started about 2 p.m. when Gazal's Honda minivan, headed east on Jewel Ave., broadsided a Mercury Grand Marquis, injuring its driver, at Kissena Blvd.
Gazal, who was bringing her son and two young nieces back from school, said she had the light, but witnesses said she didn't.
The two girls weren't hurt, but the impact hurled the boy from the vehicle's center row through a side window and onto the street.
The Mercury was propelled over a center median and into a Saab stopped for the light on the south side of Kissena Blvd.
Gazal's minivan careened about 80 feet through the glass-strewn intersection, knocking down an elderly man before finally stopping with a woman and her young daughter pinned underneath...
