Drunk Driver Rolls His SUV on Eastern Parkway

Crown Heights, Brooklyn — At 6:50 this evening pedestrians witnessed a very wild scene on Eastern Parkway when a SUV lost control and rolled over about 3 times, according to witnesses and came to rest on a parked car and a tree on the other side of the ‘island’.

More pictures and a video clip in the Extended Article!

According to eyewitnesses the SUV was traveling Westbound towards Grand Army Plaza in the left lane when a car cut him off from the right causing him to lose control of the SUV and went rolling over and barreling into the tree and parked car.

The stricken parked car had a child in it, who was in middle of being taken out by his aunt, while the child’s mother was in middle of unloading things from the trunk. Miraculously the tree took the full brunt of the impact and the car only sustained minor damage.

While the SUV lay upside down lots of 40oz beer bottles along with other cans of beer spilled from the vehicles interior, at least one was open. The driver didn’t appear to sustain any serious injuries and police arrested him for Driving Under the Influence [DUI]. He was transported by FDNY EMS along with an officer on board the ambulance to Kings County Hospital.

Later NYPD’s ESU division responded to roll the vehicle back over for the tow truck to be able to take it away, drove up on the sidewalk and got stuck in the mud, officers tried to get it out, but to no avail. The truck was removed by the tow truck that responded.

    once about 10 yrs ago, someone came to us in his car on Purim with a friend. It was a married man. He drank alot at our house and is such a man….he knew he had alcohol in his system and asked someone to drive him home in his car, which we did.
    A true mensch can even be a mensch when drunk. Thats what the bocherim must know.

    who was drunk, the guy in the suv?
    if he was, even though he drank he only crashed because a car cut him off and he then lost control.
    btw was the driver of the suv jewish?

    ok…..i think we need to start teaching our children about not drinking…..or at least drinking safely and being aware of the amount of alcochol going into their systems…..this accident could have been much worse….eventhough it wasnt a jew this really shows us that drinking can have horrible consequences……watch out!

    iM TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT WAS GOING THROUGH YOUR MIND WHEN YOU WROTE YOUR COMMENT. YOU SAY FIRST HOW WE HAVE TO TEACH THE KIDS NOT TO DRINK, AND IN THE SAME LINE , YOU SAY , AND I QUOTE: “OR AT LEAST DRINKING SAFELY AND BEING AWARE OF THE AMOUNT OF ALCOHOL GOING INTO THEIR SYSTEM” . SORRY TO SAY, THATS A WEIRD APPROACH, KNOWING THAT THEY ARE NOT GOING TO START “BEING AWARE” WHEN YOU SAY YOU CAN DRINK. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO, IS TEACH THEM NOT TO DRINK. I SAY ITS THAT SIMPLE. I HOPE I MADE MY POINT

    I would love to hear “to DRINKING IS UNSAFE” come up with a plan for teaching Jews, who use alcohol in every important religious ritual, and specifically Lubavitchers, who use it to farbreng, not to drink. What would such a plan look like?

    YOU TOTALLY SHOCK ME: I WOULD HAVE ASSUMED YOU UNDERSTOOD, THAT OUR CONVERSAYION HERE IS FOR THOSE WHO DO NOT DRINK FOR “RELIGIOUS RITUALS” , THE ONES WHO DRINK BY FARBRENGENS DO NOT WORRY ME THAT THEY WILL GET INTO A CAR AFTER DRINKING AND DRIVING DRUNK! HELLO??????
