4 Injured in Eastern Parkway Collision

Four people, including a 2-year-old boy, were light-to-moderately injured in an accident in the intersection of Eastern Parkway and Brooklyn Ave. this afternoon.

Witnesses at the scene said one vehicle – a Kia sedan occupied by two off-duty Port Authority officers – was traveling at a high speed westbound on Eastern Parkway, when it collided with a blue minivan being driven down Brooklyn Ave. by a Jewish man with his 2-year-old son in the rear seat. It is unclear who had right-of-way.

The vehicles careened onto the sidewalk due to the force of the collision.

All four were injured and transported by Hatzalah and EMS to local hospitals. They are listed in light-to-moderate condition. The child was properly restrained in a car-seat.
