BROOKLYN — Six people were injured — two seriously — in a three-car crash in Flatbush Friday morning, fire officials said.
The accident occurred just after 9 a.m. at the intersection of Church and Albany avenues, an FDNY spokesman said.
Paramedics responded and transported those who were hurt to Kings County Hospital Center and Brookdale University Hospital and Medical Center. Two were seriously injured while the other four had only minor injuries, the FDNY said.
Ed, 55, who witnessed the crash, said the trouble started when a red Jeep Liberty barrelling west on Church Avenue just past Albany Avenue slammed into two cars going the opposite direction and spun around twice.
The Jeep, which Ed said "was out of control," wove around a construction van before colliding with the driver side of a silver Lincoln town car, pinning the driver inside, he said. A black Lincoln town car then hit the back of the Jeep, added Ed, who did not give his last name.
