One woman was injured in a massive car crash in Marine Park that left a vehicle completely flipped over on Halloween night.

The driver behind the wheel of a Jeep SUV crashed into a BMW near the intersection of Avenue R and East 36th Street at around 6:30 pm — sending the Jeep spiraling and injuring its driver, according to an eyewitness.

First responders arrived on the scene and transported the injured woman away in an ambulance, witnesses said.

The area was jam-packed with costumed trick-or-treaters lining the nearby streets, but no pedestrians were harmed in the crash.

A young passenger in the Jeep — along with both of the BMW’s occupants — were also unharmed.

Reasonable discourse

Jack from Brooklyn says:
But people are afraid to lose any parking spots that might improve safety like daylighting corners and adding bike lanes to slow down drivers.

Pamela from Brooklyn Heights says:
I agree with Jack - the parking situation is horrible! There’s no spots anywhere, and now people are dying on the streets. If something isn’t done to address the lack of parking, I’m not sure what to expect in the future.

More self entitled motorists causing havoc on our streets. This person should be banned from driving, for life!

Susan Rosenfeld from Sheepshead Bay says:
To Tyler, the problem is not bike lanes, but reckless drivers. Two weeks go a biker was killed on Ocean Parkway and Avenue P by a driver who went through a red light. The biker had the green light. Just yesterday, a man crossing with the light in Queens was killed by a school bus making a turn.
