This is nuts!

A guy with seven gunshot wounds to his groin and arm drove from Sunset Park to a Park Slope hospital — and into two other cars — on June 11, police and witnesses say.

The 45-year-old was likely involved in a shooting at 53rd Street and Third Avenue, and he showed up to Methodist Hospital at 4:57 pm, officials said.

He hit two cars turning the wrong way onto Sixth Street at the hospital’s emergency-room entrance on the corner of Seventh Avenue, witnesses said.

The man is in stable condition, according to police.

There are no arrests, and the investigation is ongoing, officials said.

He went to Methodist when Lutheran NYU is just down the street?

Hello, John Wasserman here. He probably went to Methodist due to their less strict questioning about gun shot wounds. Pardon my interruption. John Wasserman
