Five Hurt In Car Crash At Busy Area Intersection

Shortly before 9 a.m. a 2000 black, four-door Nissan sedan, driven by an 18-year-old Canarsie man, hit two 17-year-old women — one from the area and the other from Queens — who were apparently waiting at the corner bus stop, before it ended up onto the sidewalk where it crashed into a low brick fence on the property of Nancy Guerra, who has lived in the Seaview Avenue corner house with her family for 52 years.

Guerra told the Courier that she was just relaxing when she heard “a big boom” and assumed two vehicles had collided at the heavily trafficked intersection outside her home. When Guerra went outside, she saw a car had crashed into and badly damaged the three-foot high brick fence that was erected a couple of years ago. Guerra said she spoke to the driver, who told her he “lost his brakes” while making the left turn.
