Cops: Woman Dead, At Least 9 Injured In Brooklyn Hit-And-Run.

A woman was killed in Brooklyn Thursday night when an out-of-control car hit her, also injuring nine other people before the driver fled on foot, cops said. A manical driver blazed a path of destruction on a Brooklyn street Thursday night — hitting an SUV and then fatally striking a woman before smashing into several cars, cops and witnesses said.A driver fatally struck a woman in Brooklyn on Thursday night, then injured about a dozen people — including himself — as he tried to flee, the police said.

Witnesses say they saw a man in his 20s, driving a white Mercedes sedan hit the woman, then try to keep going but several cars were in his way, CBS2’s Dave Carlin reported. “She was driving and he hit her on the side so he hit the lady and then hit it from the side knocked her over the divider and caused the other cars to collide trying to get away,” one witness said. The gruesome Thanksgiving night wreck on Pennsylvania Ave. in East New York ended with the 24-year-old driver trying to carjack passing vehicles, a scene so outrageous that one witness likened it to a violent video game. “He was just trying to run on the other side (of the street) to try and open people’s car doors as they’re driving … like it was ‘Grand Theft Auto,’” said Tianna Humphrey, 18. “It was just so crazy.” The accident unfolded about 7:15 p.m. when the driver of a white Mercedes-Benz hit a Nissan Murano that was stopped at a light. The cold-hearted driver sped away from the scene but soon barreled into the back of a blue Dodge Caravan — sparking a chain-reaction accident at a red light that involved a black Dodge Charger and white Audi Q7.
