A Jewish man walking his son to school was hit in a two car collision on Thursday morning in Crown Heights.
Surveillance footage from the scene shows the two waiting at the intersection of Crown Street and Brooklyn Avenue at 7:45 am, when a car ran a red light and collided with another car, sending one careening into the sidewalk, hitting the father and son.
“There was a minyan going on in a nearby home, so within minutes there were a few Hatzalah members who ran outside to help,” a passerby told COLlive.
Both father and son were taken to Methodist Hospital. It was not clear the condition of the victims at this time.
The resident whose lawn the car hit told COLlive, “I always tell people not to stand for longer than necessary at this corner. Many times they congregate there and do not realize how dangerous it is. Today’s unfortunate incident makes it clear why.”
