NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – One person is dead and another seriously injured after a car crash in Brooklyn.
It happened just before 3:30 a.m. Saturday near Atlantic Avenue and Rochester Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant.
Surveillance video from across the street shows a Maserati jump a curb, hit a concrete median and smash into an elevated subway column. The car then burst into flames.
The driver was trapped inside the vehicle. He died at the scene.
A 35-year-old passenger was taken to a local hospital in critical condition.
Nearby workers were stunned.
“There was nothing in front of him and nothing behind him. He was just flying, you know, going way too fast. I would think they were going about a buck, a hundred miles an hour,” said Pat Fitzgerald, who works at a nearby auto body shop.
The Maserati was the only car involved in the crash.
