Multi-Vehicle Collision Injures 7 People

A motor-vehicle accident involving several vehicles occurred in the East Flatbush section of Brooklyn on Monday, December 12th shortly after 4:30 p.m. Police were trying to complete a traffic stop at Ditmas Avenue in the vicinity of Coventry Road. Plain clothes officers in an unmarked patrol car stopped the black BMW, and as the officers exited the patrol car, the motorist left the scene.
Police said they had stopped the car because of a moving violation for failure to obey pavement markings. They pursued the BMW for a brief time, and then stopped because of safety issues. They said the BMW stopped at a red light, and the same unmarked patrol car moved in front of the vehicle.
The vehicle driven by the suspect, who was 20-years-old, crashed into the unmarked patrol car and kept going down Kings Highway. The motorist then sped through the intersection at East 42nd Street, and struck a Toyota SUV while it traveled in the southern direction. As a result of the collision, there was a chain reaction of vehicles that were hit, including a Mercedes Benz SUV containing five people, and four parked vehicles, one of which was a yellow school bus.
Following the crash, the motorist fled on foot, but was subsequently caught at Albany and Foster Avenues. Seven people suffered injuries, and one of them was severely hurt. A man, age 56, inside the Toyota SUV, sustained serious injuries. All were transported to Kings County Hospital. Had the accident happened just a few hours earlier, when children were just getting out of school, there may have been more injuries. Police are conducting an investigation, and the suspect is facing charges.
