Four people were injured, including three pedestrians, when the driver of a stolen SUV allegedly fled police, ran a red light and crashed into another SUV driver in East Flatbush this morning, police said.
The crash took place at about 9:15 a.m. at the intersection of Remsen Avenue and Rutland Road, according to the NYPD. When cops tried to pull over Stephen Brumaire, 18, in a Chevy Tahoe, he allegedly blew a red light and slammed into the driver of a Nissan Pathfinder who was crossing the intersection with the light on Rutland. The collision sent the two vehicles careening in different directions, the Tahoe into a 34-year-old woman and a 2-year-old boy in a stroller, and the Pathfinder into a 10-month-old baby boy.
Paramedics drove the three pedestrians to Kings County Hospital in stable condition, and the 57-year-old Nissan driver to Brookdale Hospital, also stable, police said.
Officers arrested Brumaine and charged him with assault, fleeing police, speeding, grand larceny, possession of stolen property, stealing a car, unlicensed driving, and run
