Two cars smashed into each other sending one flying into a building and the other hurtling down Henry Street in Brooklyn Heights this afternoon. The car above crashed thunderously into 30 Henry Street, the offices of the Brooklyn Eagle newspaper. The driver (seen sitting with a brace around his neck) appeared to be in better shape than the driver of the car below, who was carried away in great pain.
The noise was tremendous. Reporters from the Brooklyn Eagle rushed out of the building with cameras and firefighters came running from the firehouse just around the corner. The full story appears here.
Luckily, school is still out for the summer, as this corner would normally be crowded with kids and parents walking home from P.S. 8 at this time of day.
