UPDATE: Two Dead After Car Accident in Boro Park
Officials say the white sedan responsible for this afternoon's horrific multi-vehicle crash was speeding when the driver ran a red light and hit the first vehicle and multiple pedestrians.
The sedan came to an abrupt stop five blocks after slamming into the first car and only after striking a light pole that stopped its momentum and exposed live wires.
Seven people suffered injuries from the incident, including two who died.
Misaskim was not needed.
