Man Indicted In Fatal Crash That Killed 10 Year Old Miriam Avraham AH

Fair Lawn, NJ – A New Jersey man accused of driving a stolen car that crashed into another vehicle, killing a 10-year-old girl, will face felony murder charges.

The charge against 23-year-old Harold Saenz of Bergenfield was included in an eight-count indictment handed by a Bergen County grand jury. He also face charges of aggravated assault, aggravated manslaughter and eluding.

As was initially reported by YWN at the time of the crash, 10-year-old Miriam Avraham A”H, was R?L killed when a stolen Mercedes slammed into her family’s car in Bergen County in October 2008.

Miriam Avraham A”H was a sixth-grader at the Solomon Schechter Day School in New Milford, NJ, and the car she was driving in was on the way to a Simchas Bais Hashoeva.

Miriam, her 14-year-old brother and a friend of the brother were passengers in a Honda Accord driven by her mother when the speeding Mercedes broadsided the Honda at a New Milford intersection.

The collision sheared the Honda in half, killing Miriam and critically injuring the brother’s friend, Eric Brauner. Both were in the back seat.

Miriam’s mother, Helene Avraham, and brother, Shachar, suffered minor injuries.

Saenz stole the Mercedes from a driveway on Sylvan Road in the borough. Joseph Macellaro, chief of detectives in the prosecutor’s office, had said the owner either left the car running or left the keys inside while he went into his home to fetch a second set of keys for another vehicle in the driveway.
