Brooklyn, NY: SUV Flips & Kills Man On Sidewalk

On November 9th, a SUV flipped onto a Brooklyn sidewalk and landed on a 50-year-old man. The 53-year-old driver of the SUV is said to have lost control of his car while trying to prevent another car from passing him. He ran into a bus stop sign and a tree according to witnesses of the crash.

There were three other people in the car, including a three-year-old boy. All passengers were hospitalized for minor injuries. Part of the reason the SUV lost control was due to fallen foliage, causing the car to flip twice before it ended up on the sidewalk in front of a beauty supply shop.

Medical Technicians tried CPR on the man who suffered the unfortunate consequence of the car flipping on him, he was taken to Kings County Hospital but, sadly there was nothing else that could be done for him.

Bystanders freed the driver and the three-year-old child who was strapped into the back seat.

The crash is being investigated by the NYPD's Collision Investigation Squad.
