Two women were killed in a Brooklyn hit-and-run accident on December 14. The fatal crash took place at Flatlands and Pennsylvania Avenue in East New York.
According to the police, a gray BMW was going southbound on Pennsylvania Avenue when it hit a Toyota Camry that was going east on Flatlands Avenue.
The driver and passenger of the Toyota Camry were taken to NYC Health and Hospitals/Kings County where they were pronounced dead.
After the crash, two unidentified male occupants of the BMW escaped the location on foot. The New York Police Department’s Highway Collision Squad is investigating the crash. According to an eyewitness the BMW was going at a high speed.
For now, the identities of the victims are not released and are pending proper family notifications.
Fatal accidents are never easy. Losing a family member in such an accident is a tragedy. In case it was a hit-and-run, things are even more complex since there is no liable driver.
However, if this is your case, don’t lose hope and don’t give up. It’s essential that you seek legal help from a car accident attorney.
