A 6-year-old boy died on Wednesday after a gruesome Canarsie car crash, according to authorities.

A 44-year-old Canarsie woman was behind the wheel of her 2013 Toyota Highlander with 6-year-old Jerry Louisamard when the car smashed into a parked vehicle on Seaview Avenue near Paerdegat Avenue North and E. 80th Street just after 4 p.m., cops said.

First responders arrived at the scene to find Louisamard with severe trauma to his chest, and the driver with an injury to the left side of her body, according to police.

Paramedics took the child and the driver to nearby Brookdale Hospital, where doctors pronounced Louisamard dead. The female driver remains in stable condition, according to authorities.

No arrests have been made, and an investigation by the NYPD Collision Investigation Squad is ongoing.

Reasonable discourse

Henry Ford from Bay Ridge says:
Condolences to the family. But this one time, this crazed cyclist whizzed by me and nearly almost came so close to almost nearly hitting me. I could have gotten bruised pretty bad if I was 2 feet in the other direction.

Henry Ford from Bay Ridge says:
Or this maniac on a bike who blew through a red light and hit this poor woman, never even stopped. It was caught on surveillance cameras, but without plates, we'll never know who this coward is.
