Armor Was Needed Outside Armory When SUV Jumped Curb in Brooklyn


Posted on May 10, 2011

Four people were injured when an SUV drove onto the sidewalk near the Park Slope Armory at the corner of Eighth Avenue and Fifteen Street in Brooklyn on April 15, 2011 at about 4:15 p.m.

According to people who witnessed the accident, an SUV driven by a man in his mid 60s hit a car, ended up on the sidewalk and kept going. The SUV hit four women before becoming wedged between a tree and a light pole. There were many children nearby the accident because the YMCA recreation center was open in the armory at the time of the wreck. Thankfully, none of the children were injured in this Brooklyn car crash.

Two of the women who were injured were taken to New York Methodist Hospital and two of the women were taken to Lutheran Medical Center. None of the injuries are believed to be life threatening.

According to police, it is possible that the driver fell asleep or suffered a condition that caused him to lose consciousness just prior to the accident. The accident investigation is ongoing.

We extend our best wishes for a full and fast recovery to all four women who were injured in this Brooklyn pedestrian accident.
