A chain-reaction collision involving a stolen SUV driven by a teenager injured four people, including two children in Brooklyn Monday morning, police said.
Around 9 a.m. at the corner of Utica Avenue and Rutland Road in East Flatbush, the driver of a 2007 Chevy Tahoe allegedly ran a red light and hit a Nissan Pathfinder, Pix11 reported. The driver of the Pathfinder, a woman, was taken to an area hospital.
After the impact, flying debris hit a 10-month-old boy in a stroller pushed by his babysitter, both of whom were taken to the hospital, Pix11 added.
The babysitter did not require medical attention, according toNBC4.
After the first collision, the Tahoe then veered onto a different corner, striking another woman with a child on the sidewalk, according to NBC4. The woman was taken to Kings County Hospital in critical condition with the child, whose injuries were not as serious.
Police took the teenage driver of the Tahoe into custody, police said to Pix11, which added that the license plates on the SUV had allegedly been changed to disguise its theft.
Police told ABC7that the SUV had run a red light and was being pulled over but that the incident was not a police pursuit.
