According to the police, a T-bone collision drove a smashed-up car careening into pedestrians in Brooklyn on Monday, which resulted in the deaths of two individuals and the injuries of five more.
A guy in his forties who was driving on 18th Avenue in Bensonhurst and probably ran a red light before colliding with another vehicle at the intersection of 64th Street, according to the police, was the driver who lost control of his vehicle and caused the accident that occurred just before 1 p.m.
The two vehicles can be seen on the surveillance camera crashing into each other and then spinning out of control, with one of the vehicles careening onto the sidewalk and the other careening down the street.
Another footage from the aftermath indicates that there were pieces of cars scattered across the pavement and the walkway as first responders rushed to transfer casualties into ambulances.
According to the police, despite everyone’s best efforts, two victims who were rushed to Maimonides Hospital could not be saved.
According to the police, there was one patient in serious condition at the hospital, and four others were hospitalized but in stable condition.
It is unknown whether the person who was driving the car that was involved in the accident was among those injured or among those who perished.
The driver of the car that was out of control remained at the scene and was taken to jail; the allegations against him are now unknown.
