Original post:

We just got word from a neighbor that about 10 minutes ago, around 3:45 p.m., there was a “massive, massive” three-car accident on Ocean Avenue near Avenue U.

Our tipster tells us that it involved two cars and an SUV. One of the vehicles came up over the sidewalk and ran into the gate of a nearby medical facility.

“Had I been coming out of the building, I would’ve been killed,” the tipster noted.

FDNY firetrucks are on the scene, as is an ambulance. The tipster said it looked like someone was taken into the ambulance.

Our reader noted that it looked like something fell into one of the vehicles windows.

We’re heading to the scene now to bring you more information.
