A 28-year-old woman was killed after the car she was in hit a pole in East Williamsburg early this morning. According to police, the incident happened around 3:10 a.m. on Johnson Avenue near Varick Avenue. The victim was a passenger in a black 2009 Mazda being driven by a 19-year-old headed eastbound on Johnson. “I heard a loud crash. I saw a bunch of people crowded around,” 20-year-old witness Dylan Eitharong told the Post.
“I heard the guy screaming, 'Oh s---, oh f---, what did I do?' He was running back and forth until the cops came and took him,” Eitharong, who had just gotten off the L train Morgan Avenue station when he came across the accident, added. Police say Johnson lost control of the car, and struck a wooden telephone pole. The woman, who was the front seat passenger, was declared dead at the scene.
