Brooklyn, NY (May 13, 2021) – Around 2:30 a.m. on the morning of Wednesday, May 12, a car crash with injuries took place at an intersection in Brooklyn.
According to police, the accident happened at the intersection of Mother Gaston Boulevard and Livonia Avenue. The driver of a stolen Chevrolet Malibu allegedly drove through the red light at the intersection, slamming into a police cruiser.
The Chevy continued onward, where it struck a Cadillac Escalade before it slammed into the rear of a parked box truck on Linden Avenue. This led to extensive damages to the involved vehicles.
Paramedics, fire crews, and numerous other responders were dispatched to the scene. Three teens inside the stolen vehicle were taken to various hospitals for treatment of serious injuries. One of the teens was said to have been in critical condition. Two offers in the police cruiser were also rushed to the hospital for treatment of their injuries.
Charges are pending against the teenagers at this time.
No further details have been released but the investigation continues.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.
