A car collision spilled over onto the sidewalk in Brooklyn yesterday, killing one pedestrian and leaving several others seriously injured. According to police, an Acura MDX traveling north on West 5th Street in Bensonhurst and a Jeep Cherokee riding east on Quentin Road collided at the intersection around 2:25 p.m. The impact was such that Acura careened onto the sidewalk, hitting a family of four. "A lady was completely dead or passed out. It was horrifying," one witness told the Post. "An infant and two other people were under the car. It was so terrible."

That infant, who police list as a 1-year-old girl, is in stable condition at Lutheran Medical Center. The other pedestrians walking with the infant who the Post identifies as a family, include a 32-year-old woman and a man in his 60s, both in stable condition. The deceased pedestrian is a 60-year-old woman.

Three passengers of the Jeep are in stable condition, while a fourth, a 21-year-old man, is in critical but stable condition. The driver of the Acura, a 60-year-old man, refused medical treatment. Police say there is no criminality suspected and that the investigation is ongoing, while the Post claims the driver of the Acura ran a stop sign. An NYPD spokesperson confirmed that no charges have been filed as of yet.

One resident living near the crash told the Post that the intersection is notorious for its traffic accidents. “This cross street is a death trap,” 17-year-old Mohammed Umair said. "This isn’t going to stop until there are more lights and signs put up. More people are going to die if something isn’t done.”

[UPDATE] The NYPD has released the name of the pedestrian who was killed: Chenugor Dao, age 62. Dao's home on West 5th Street is less than half a block from the intersection where she was killed.
