Brooklyn, NY – Dad, Two Kids Injured When Car Jumps Curb at St. John Pl and Nostrand Ave

Brooklyn, NY (April 07, 2022) – Three pedestrians, two of whom were children, were injured when a car jumped a curb and crashed into a storefront in Brooklyn on Wednesday, April 6th. 

The incident occurred at about 8:00 a.m. at the intersection of Norstrand Avenue and St. John Place in the Crown Heights neighborhood when a 43-year-old father and his 9-year-old boy and 11-year-old sons were struck by a Honda SUV that drove onto the sidewalk.

The car then crashed into the roll-down gate in front of Two Saints Restaurant, which was closed at the time.

All three victims were taken to Methodist Hospital. They are expected to survive.

According to sources, the 45-year-old driver is thought to have been avoiding a collision with another vehicle when he went up onto the curb.

Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
