Minivan Driver Crashes into Playground
The Tot Lot on the corner of Cortelyou and Argyle is a mess this morning, following an accident last night in which a minivan crashed into the fence. You can see in the photo above, sent in by Ben, that the force was enough to toss a a section of wrought iron fence across the lot and mangle a bench.
A neighbor who drove past last night at about 2am reports on the Flatbush Family Network that she stopped to look and asked the police what had happened, and they said that someone had cut off the driver, and that no one was hurt.
I shudder to think what would have happened had this incident occurred in the middle of the day. Take a look at these pictures of the crash’s aftermath and ask yourself if Christopher Gray was right about cars on the sidewalk.
