All the vehicles were unoccupied.
Police from the 70th Precinct blocked Avenue N and the driver’s wife was treated by an ambulance who was nearby when the crash occurred.
Steve Kaner, a long time homeowner on Avenue N, said cars are always speeding on this avenue
“They are always racing here so when the light turns green, they race to try to make it to the next light, but they don’t realize that it will probably be red,” he said. “They should put a speed camera here, there is a school nearby.”
A video provided by a homeowner shows the moment of impact. No charges were filed against the driver pending further investigation.
Rosa claimed he is a sick person and people accused him of speeding. “I don’t speed, someone pulled out on me – I would’ve pulled over.”
