Two Accidents In Canarsie Within 24 Hours
The first happened Sunday afternoon on Avenue L when three vehicles were involved in a collision at the corner of East 92nd Street (See photo above and on page 1). Police said three people were injured seriously in the crash.
The second accident occurred at about 8:40 a.m. Monday when a wood chipping machine being carried by a flatbed truck apparently slipped off the truck, sending it careening across the divide on Flatlands Avenue between East 106th and East 107th streets and into a 2011 Lexus traveling east on Flatlands. The Lexus was sent crashing into three parked vehicles which, in turn, crashed into a light pole.
One witness said that as soon as the accident happened, he saw the female driver ease herself out the rear window of the car and fall on the street.
