Yesterday morning, an out-of-control car crashed into a Queens bus shelter in Douglaston, injuring seven people, not to mention the shelter. One person had two broken legs, while four other also suffered broken bones. And the apparent explanation for the havoc? The Post reports, "Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said the car hit a puddle and hydroplaned into the shelter."

One witness said that the driver appeared to be speeding, telling WCBS 2. The Queens Courier says the driver was 17-year-old and had apparently been trying to pass a car that he'd been tailgating. The driver who was being tailgated said, "He went into the other lane to overtake me [and] he lost control and he hydroplaned. He hit the curb, and he went airborne, hitting people like a bowling alley.” No summons were issued since the driver had a clean license.
