Wild 3 Car ‘Pile-Up’ in Boro Park

On Tuesday at around 8:00pm a car service was observed going down 40th St. in Boro Park attempting to ‘make the light’ but failed causing a terrible accident with injuries.

When the car service entered the intersection a small Nissan Sentra heading up 16th Ave. slammed into the driver side of the car service with enough force to roll it over, but it didn’t end with that, the heavy Ford Crown Victoria landed on top of the hood of a Cadillac CTS which was waiting at the intersection for the light.

There were multiple injuries of various extent, Hatzalah responded and transported the patients to Lutheran Trauma Center where they were all listed in stable condition.

    Hey Yosef Yitzchak. i think you should blur your name first…!
    And, that stuff is a substance that "disarms" any live fuel spilled onto the street.

    I believe what the officer is pouring is something that is used to absorb spills, such as gasoline. It’s sort of like kitty litter — mechanics in garages use it all the time. If you look at the other photos of this accident you will notice white stuff on the ground that looks kind of like sand — that’s what it is.

    It looks like a fireman, and I suspect he’s pouring some kind of flame retardant on spilled gasoline.

    That’s absolutely crazy. I think that taxi drivers need to learn how to drive.

    If you practiced, you couldn’t get these cars arranged like that. Must have been an awesome sight!

    We still have a ways to go…be careful, everyone!

    in response to anonomous who wrote that taxi drivers ought to learn how to drive. I think people in Boro Park ought to learn some manners. When ever I go to Boro Park drivers are totally rude and totally selfish and are honking like maniacs when the light is about to change. plus they have an attitude about anyone who isn’t Jewish and/or isn’t from there neighborhood. It’s not the taxi drivers, it’s the attitude of the boro parkers.

    As a boro parker who comes from out of town,there is an all around problem with the attitudes of people here Both pedestrians and drivers! I have seen many times where drivers use red lights as merely a suggestion–if you like you may stop! I have also seen pedestrians (not only the ederly) who will not have the light to cross, will look staight at your car coming and still stroll across the street as if the light is theirs. Or how about the women who push their carriages out in front of them in the way of oncoming traffic when they are waiting for the light to change for them. Don’t they worry about killing their children chas vesholem! It’s all about me first! Both the drivers and the pedestrians need lessons on how to behave.
    My last pet peeve for today is when drivers stop either to pick up people or to drop off people and they stop smack in the middle of the street. Ever heard of pulling over into a driveway or at the nearest pump?!! Usually it means just pulling up a couple of inches and moving to the side!
