A 54-year-old Brooklyn woman recently died in three-vehicle accident. The crash occurred in the intersection of Foster and Ralph avenues in East Flatbush. The woman was on her way to work when her Pontiac car collided with a Volkswagen before careening into a semi truck.
The driver of the Volkswagen, a 22-year-old male, was injured and taken to Brookdale Hospital for treatment. The truck driver avoided injury.
The deceased woman will be missed by many. A longtime New York City bus driver and mother of four adult children, she was rarely seen without wearing her smile.
This heart-wrenching car accident shows how one mistake can quickly prove fatal. A catastrophic crash happen at any moment; all it takes is a couple moments of distraction, a few too many drinks, or simply letting one’s mind wander while behind the wheel.
