BROOKLYN, NY – According to an online news report on nydailynews.com, a pedestrian was killed, and another was seriously injured after a car struck the pedestrians and then crashed into a Brooklyn building.
According to the news report, the NYPD is investigating the accident scene to determine why and how a motor vehicle jumped a sidewalk curb at Milford Street and Atlantic Ave in Brooklyn, New York, resulting in a severe accident this past Friday. The report states that a 47-year-old gentleman was at a bus stop in Brooklyn. According to police, the man was tragically killed after a car wash employee lost control over the SUV he was operating, hoped over the curb, and pinned the man against a building. The news article states that the car wash employee was scrubbing the interior or a Jeep Liberty Commander at a drive-through car wash. The report alleges that the car wash employee “peeled out of the business,” and the worker lost control of the motor vehicle and that he could not “control the car.” Then the Jeep struck the man at the bus stop.
The news report stated that the Jeep had a Chrysler Hemi engine inside of the motor vehicle, and this engine is much more power than a standard engine. She said the car wash worker might not have realized how much power the engine has. The Jeep’s owner stated that the car wash employee must not have known the power of the motor vehicle leading to the accident.
The collision investigation squad for the NYPD has begun their investigation.
