A miracle happened in Brooklyn when a 13-year-old girl was struck by an unconscious driver as she was on the sidewalk. Even though she was tossed into the air, she had barely a scratch.
She was standing on the corner of 18th Avenue and 55th Street where she lived. A Toyota Camry ran the intersection and struck her. She saw the car coming and tried to flee but couldn’t get away. Surveillance video shows the passenger trying to flee the car while it was in motion.
The girl landed in a garden and was able to stand, though she had a leg injury. The passenger also escaped. But the driver was not so lucky. He is now in critical condition. The passenger reported that the driver had a medical incident while driving that lead to the accident.
