That was one pretty serious-looking accident at the troubled corner of Van Brunt Street and Dikeman Street in the heart of Red Hook on Friday afternoon.

But cops say that no one was injured in the three-car crash around midday on the neighborhood’s Indy 500 main drag.

“I saw the whole thing,” said one witness. “This car was going like 50 and he hit a truck, which hit another car.”

One of the cars ended up careening right into a storefront window, which is where our shutterbug Tom Callan found it just a few minutes later.

Reasonable discourse

RK from Red Hook says:
This is the second time a car has crashed into a building in the SAME block of Van Brunt Street this year. Two people have also been hit by cars this year crossing the street in the SAME block, one was our crossing guard! It is sheer luck that no one was killed either on the street or working in the office of the building where the car came crashing through. Van Brunt needs more stop lights to slow the speedsters on their way to Fairway.

I drive to Red Hook all the time now that Fairway and Ikea are sooo close to my neighborhood. The traffic in that area is very busy now but I don't think the city has done enough to secure an easy flow for cars or pedestrians!!!
