Reader Christoper sent us a set of photographs from the aftermath of a car accident in Brooklyn, on Atlantic Avenue near the BQE, yesterday. The front of a building is destroyed - with a "Do Not Enter" sign near the front. And an SUV looks crumpled. According to the Post, it turns out that a Bronx man had exited the BQE at 4AM, hit the sign, which was dragged under his car, and then crashed into the "unoccupied" Atlantic Peritoneal Dialysis Home Training Center.

The driver, 22-year-old Efrain Chiclana, was arrested for DWI at Bellevue; a female passenger was uninjured but a 2-year-old child in the car had serious injuries and was taken to Long Island College Hospital. Chiclana's father said, "My son [is] not doing too well. I just hope he gets better."
