Park Slope, NY (February 22, 2020) – A five-car pile-up in Brooklyn on Friday, February 21st, resulted in injuries to five people.
Witnesses to the event have stated that a few of the vehicles involved looked to be speeding.
Security footage taken from inside a nearby business shows one of the cars slamming into a parked car at about 11:45 p.m. at Fifth Avenue and East 5th Street.
Police reports indicate that a car was heading southbound along Fifth Avenue when two other cars attempted to pass, causing all three to collide and strike two more parked vehicles.
Additional video from an unspecified source that was taken just moments before the collision shows two vehicles flying through the neighborhood and passing other cars on the wrong side of the road in spite of the clearly marked double yellow line.
Five of the people involved were transported to various local hospitals with unspecified injuries.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
