BROOKLYN — Four people were injured — three seriously — after a car jumped the curb in Park Slope and hit a pedestrian Monday afternoon, fire officials said.

The car slammed into the person at Fifth Avenue and Ninth Street before ramming into a storefront at about 5:24 p.m., according to the FDNY and a WCBS report.

The pedestrian and two other people were rushed to Methodist Hospital in serious condition. The car plowed through the window of a DII discount store, right next to a B61 bus stop.

Another person suffered minor injuries and refused medical attention at the scene. 

The NYPD did not have any immediate information on the collision. It was not clear how many people were in the car.

The intersection was the site of a hit and run that killed a 41-year-old man in February 2016, and a van crashed into a deli on the corner across from Monday's crash in April 2013.

It's also the intersection where skinned goat heads were found dangling from a street light in 2014.
