Sunset Park, Brooklyn, NY (October 8, 2019) – At least four people, including a 5-year-old child, suffered injuries following a multi-vehicle crash that took place in the Sunset Park neighborhood of Brooklyn. The collision occurred at around 2:30 p.m. on Monday afternoon, October 7th, at the intersection of 54th Street and 4th Avenue.
Officials stated that a Chevrolet Camaro, occupied by five teenage girls, went through the intersection and struck a Chrysler minivan. The Camaro then continued to strike a female pedestrian who was in a crosswalk at the time. A Honda Pilot was also damaged in the collision.
Police and medical crews responded to the incident where one of the teenage girls in the Camaro, a man and his 5-year-old son who were in the minivan, and the pedestrian who has only been identified as a woman in her 40s, were all transported to NYU Langone Brooklyn Hospital. The pedestrian suffered the most serious injuries but all victims are expected to survive.
The incident is under investigation.
Our thoughts are with all four injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recoveries.
