BREAKING: Car Flipped On Highlawn And Stillwell Avenues, Driver Arrested


A driver was taken into custody by police after plowing into another vehicle and flipping her car causing it to flip on Highlawn Avenue near Stillwell Avenue, a reader tells us.

The reader sent us the accompanying photos and said that the accident happened around 2:15 p.m., around the same time P.S. 97, located one block away, was dismissed. Luckily, the reader noted, no children were hurt.

“Never seen a car crash like this,” the neighbor wrote to Bensonhurst Bean. “Everyone survived but it looks like a scene from a movie.”

The tipster said the driver was arrested for driving under the influence, though we have not yet confirmed that with police.

Update (4:30 p.m.): Another reader pipes in to correct us, letting us know that the driver who was intoxicated and arrested was in the small car, not the truck, and that the SUV was driven by a man. We made the change above.

This is a breaking news story and may contain inaccuracies. We will update it as more information becomes available. If anyone has more information or additional photos, please send them to nberke (at) bensonhurstbean (dot) com.
