BROOKLYN — Seven people were hurt, two seriously, when a driver slammed his SUV into several other vehicles in Flatbush before getting out and fleeing the scene Monday morning, a police spokesman said.

The driver had turned from Bedford Avenue onto Clarkson Avenue when he slammed into a parked car, and then hit another three or four vehicles about 1:30 a.m., the NYPD spokesman said.

The driver ditched his SUV at the scene and fled on foot, police said. He hadn't been arrested as of 7:30 a.m. Monday, a spokesman said.

The crash seriously injured two people who were listed in stable condition at Kings County Hospital. Another five sustained minor injuries, an FDNY spokesman said.
