Teen in Stolen SUV Causes Crash in Brooklyn, Injuring Four Pedestrians

An 18-year-old male reportedly sped through Brooklyn in a stolen SUV, causing a number of car collisions that injured four people, including two children and a mother.
The accident occurred on the morning of Monday, May 16 at around 9:15 a.m. The teen, later identified as Stephen Brumaire, allegedly drove through a red light at the intersection of Rutland Road and Remsen Avenue and crashed into a Nissan Pathfinder. The force of impact caused both SUVs to move in different directions. The two SUVs then collided with women who were pushing strollers in East Flatbush.
According to witnesses at the scene of the accident, the stolen grey 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe swerved around vehicles that were stopped at the light and then crashed into a Nissan Pathfinder. One witness said that the two vehicles struck each other and subsequently spun out of control. The driver of the stolen car then lost control, hopped onto a curb on East 52nd Street, and rammed into a mother who was pushing a stroller holding her two-year-old boy.
After the accident, the mother was motionless. Later, the accident scene was marked by a baby carriage that had overturned and was wrecked. Meanwhile, the mother and child were both transported to Kings County Hospital, with the mother’s condition was listed as critical.
Police stated that the other vehicle in the accident, the Pathfinder, went over a sidewalk and crashed into a fence, barely avoiding contact with a nanny pushing a stroller that had a 10-month-old boy. However, debris discharged from the SUV and struck the boy. Both the nanny and the child were transported to Brookdale Memorial Hospital, where their conditions were listed as stable.
