Pedestrians injured in Brooklyn crash
EMS reports two pedestrians were struck during a multicar crash Wednesday morning in East New York.
The crash occurred near the intersection of Cozine and Pennsylvania avenues just before 10:30 a.m. Witnesses say a woman in a gray Toyota Corolla was making a left turn on Pennsylvania Avenue when she tried to avoid a pedestrian crossing the street.
One of the pedestrians remains in critical condition at Brookdale Hospital after being struck by an out-of-control car in Brooklyn this Wednesday morning. Reports are indicating she suffered serious head injury and may not survive.
Witness reports indicate that a 29-year-old woman driving a Toyota sedan southbound on Pennsylvania Avenue made a left turn onto Cosine, lost control of the car, and drove onto the sidewalk and struck the victims.
She first slammed into a livery cab as well as into a 59-year old man.
The other pedestrian, male, sustained lacerations to the face and is reported in stable condition.
The vehicle remained on the scene, and the investigation is ongoing.
Other people in the vehicles were also being treated.
The cause of the crash is under investigation.
