According to an accident report, the 35-year-old driver was heading westbound on Flatlands Avenue in his 2008 Mitsubishi sedan. He told police he “lost control” of the vehicle and after he passed East 93rd Street it struck a parked 1997 Ford Suburban then continued west before the sedan hit the rear of a parked 2005 Honda SUV. The car finally came to a halt when it crashed into 9207 Flatlands Avenue, causing some damage to the building and its metal gate.
