Update:Car Smashes into Bus Shelter, Brooklyn Borough Hall

The Brooklyn Eagle has the story and photos:

Around 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, a late-model Nissan slammed into a bus shelter in front of the state Supreme Court building on Court Street near Borough Hall and flipped over several times, injuring several onlookers as well as the driver herself.

“I saw people all hysterical and three people lying on the ground in very great pain," said Bermard Gamz, of the Kosher Court deli at 16 Court St. "I saw a court officer with the driver, trying to calm her."

Is this one of the shelters they were installing this morning, between Remsen and Montague or farther north on Court/Cadman?

The article said there was a construction project going on around the shelter.

Yes, that's one of the two new shelters. Now there's only one.

If that shelter hadn't been there, many, many more people would have been hit.
