This car had nothing to do with the accident. I found it online (www.2011-mustang.com). But if you wanted to know what a Mustang looks like, this is it. Hurray, internets!

The driver of a Mustang lost control of the muscle car and charged into a Hyundai Sonata near the corner of Emmons Avenue and Ford Street last Thursday afternoon, leaving two injured and six vehicles damaged.

As the Sonata was making a left turn from Ford Street at 12:40 p.m., the Mustang was speeding westbound. The Mustang slammed into the Sonata and spun into a beverage truck before sliding along a row of cars parked on Emmons Avenue, witnesses told the Post.

The Mustang lost a wheel before grinding to a halt, and the driver was unable to open his door. After firefighters freed the Mustang owner, he and the driver of the Sonata, a senior citizen, were taken immediately to the hospital for treatments. There were no arrests.

      You know what Nick? I have a friend whose husband has been saying the same thing for years. I have to agree with that now because I see too many elderly who don’t have very good reflexes, who can’t see over the steering wheel, or who think they own the road. My father is 93 years old, was a truck driver for like a million years, and who is now the worst driver in history. Occasionally he will ask me if he can use my car to go to WalMart in Long Island – and I tell him, in no uncertain terms “HELL NO!!!!”

      OOPS, i thought the mustang driver was a senior citizen (i was totally imagining some old woman in that muscle car, that would be awesome) ! i totally read that article wrong. nick fails. but still, i think SC should still be tested a little more vigorously!

    There are way too many drivers who use Emmons Avenue as a racetrack. You have to be very careful walking across or driving onto the street with all the wacko’s out there. Another dangerous place is the driveway of the Best Western. Twice over this past weekend, I had to stop short for a couple of dumbasses who just flew out of the parking area without looking or stopping before shooting onto Nostrand Avenue.

    First of all do not compare 65 yrs old vs. 93 yrs old people. I’m in my early 40s, but 65 is not an end of the world. And secondly, I’m pretty sure the Mustang has been driven by a teenager more likely than an older guy. Use your common sense!

      “he and the driver of the Sonata, a senior citizen” what year does one become a senior citizen?

      also, being retested to drive around a 2 ton death machine isn’t the end of the world either! (but it might be for someone else!)

      Teens don’t know how to drive Mustangs……… Teens drive Bimmers and such…

      Mustangs are older people toys.

    And senior people in Sonata are just victims! The probably didn’t take an advantage of a car capacity, but they definitely were not over speeding! The Mustang guy was.

  • Local Broker

    Was it confirmed that the Mustang was speeding? What if the Sonata turned onto Emmons and cut off the Mustang causing the accident.
