South Slope: SUV Strikes Multiple Pedestrians
I saw two women, one with her legs bandaged in wooden splints, being loaded into waiting ambulances.
The driver (wearing white and gray striped shirt and jeans standing next to the police officer) did not appear to be hurt.
This intersection, site of frequent accidents, is particularly dangerous as many drivers race down from Bartel-Pritchard Square on 15th Street trying to beat the stop light only to be hit by rush-hour traffic speeding down 8th Avenue exiting off the Prospect Expressway. Just a few months ago, a new stop light was installed four blocks up 8th Avenue at 17th Street near PS10.
