MONSEY, NY – Rockland Good Samaritan Driver Identified! Tonight we would like to recognize Lipa Rubin, the driver featured in yesterday’s video (watch below) rushing to the aid of a student who just exited a school bus in Ramapo.
Rubin’s quick thinking and selfless actions adverted a potentially horrific tragedy. We were assisted by Assesmblyman-Elect Mike Lawler (who represents Orangetown and Ramapo), who met us at Lipa’s restaurant. Assemblyman-Elect Lawler (Mike Lawler for State Assembly) was there to personally thank Lipa for his actions in protecting the student. The video has over 10,000 views and was featured on CBS New York.
Lipa is the owner of Slice n’ Spice Pizza and the Ridge Steakhouse located at 306 & 310 Saddle River Road in Airmont (NY).
Join us in saying a great job and big thank you to Lipa! #bestofrockland (*Masks were briefly taken off for the photo)
District Attorney Walsh and staff would stop by Slice n’ Spice on Monday for Lunch
