Yesterday afternoon an already crazy intersection in downtown Brooklyn became even crazier due to a car accident. The accident happened at approximately 2 p.m. at Cadman Plaza West near Montague Street in Brooklyn Heights. The police believe the accident happened when the driver attempted to move her double parked car. As she was attempting to do this, she hit another car & panicked. In her panicked state of mind, she accidentally put the car in drive & bolted forward about 150 feet.
The accident led to 4 people injured including the driver. One of the 4 injured was a man who was taken to Long Island College Hospital with an injured ankle. One woman was taken to Bellevue Hospital with an injured ankle. The third non driver injured was a 55 year old who suffered minor injuries but further information was unavailable. The driver who was not identified was taken to Bellevue Hospital for physical evaluation. The police said charges are pending against the driver.
