UPDATE [4:32]: It appears at least one person was injured, as reader Max K. – who also sent the photos- spotted a person on a stretcher being placed in an ambulance.

It also appears that the accident involved at least three cars. Two of the cars seem only slightly damaged, while the SUV is flipped.

Original post [4:24]: We got word that just minutes ago an SUV flipped on Emmons Avenue near Bedford Avenue. One reader reports that a child appears to be in the backseat.

We have no further information and will update as more becomes available.

Thanks to Max K., and Mike N., both of whom sent information for this report.

    Holy Shit, that just explained the Fire trucks passing by a bit ago….

    wonder how this happened!

  • Local Broker

    Either he hit the car at a corner to make it flip or tried to avoid the accident and cut the wheel to fast. Either way you have to be going at a good pace to flip a car/suv.

    Yo Brooklyn drivers are all crazy…

    Is there anything you dont have an answer for?

    I am a very aggressive driver but am very safe and understand the limitations of my driving skills to what my car can do. Most do not understand that whats involved in handling a 2 ton machine. They think its gas point and brake but have no idea of what their car is capable of in bad situations. Its scary when you see a civic with 7 inch wide tires going 90 on the highway and that person has no idea that those wheels cant handle that speed and theres no way in hell you would be able to control it if necessary. Or a Escalade going down a side street at 50 no way to stop that thing in time to avoid something no matter how skilled you think you are. The thing that pisses me off the most is not using a turn signal.

    90% of the people in grocery stores do not know how to navigate their shopping carts within the aisles. I’m convinced this correlates to their road skills.

    I thought we got lucky and you departed.

  • http://blog.arikatt.com Ariela Baranov

    That’s what I was wondering. And you can’t exactly speed in that area in the first place without being creative about it.

  • Animo916

    I don’t use my turn signals because I don’t want the car behind me to get where I’m going before me!!!

    Where do you get these ideas from?

    Next thing you may say is that its the “black” guy from the second and third pic…

    Not all women are bad drivers and not all men are bad drivers and etc…

    I thought we got lucky and you got laid…

    Not true. Big misconception. It depends on the particular SUV model and where their central point of gravity is. Some are much more likely to tip over than others. I wouldn’t believe it if I didn’t see it for myself once on Queens Blvd. An SUV was going only about 20 mph making a turn into the left lane. A car was doing around 30 going straight in the center lane when he barely touched the corner of the SUV as he was straightening out and it flipped over. I don’t know if the car who hit him even realized what he did. He would have had to look into his rear view mirror to see what happened when he heard the bang.

    I hate aggressive drivers, the kind that are constantly changing lanes on a highway to save a couple of minutes. What’s the rush. You may be a great driver, but you are not psychic. You have no way of knowing what the next guy will do. Even if you don’t hit anyone or no one hits you, your actions could cause two other cars to crash. It’s better to take it easy and go with the flow of traffic.

  • BrooklynBus

    Not a good idea.

  • Local Broker

    Driving aggressive but safely is fine as long as you let others on the road know what you are doing and they are paying attention you should be fine. I hate people that sit in the left lane when the mid and right are wide open and they hit their brakes in the left lane when someone is getting on the highway in the far right. Also how about people that are at a red light and use it as an excuse to read or check their phone or eat and when the light turns they are sitting there. I am not saying everyone should be a speed demon or do burnouts at green lights but when you are driving you should be doing nothing else but driving period.

  • Local Broker

    Like i said he might of hit the corner but the car should not flip unless he was going to fast or cut the wheel in the wrong direction hard.

    For me, time literally equals money. Those minutes add up to hours each week.

  • bagels

    See, lisanne, he’s really not that bad.

  • BrooklynBus

    All it takes is one serious accident and you will think differently. Time and money isn’t everything. Be safe.

  • BrooklynBus

    But the car did flip and he was only doing about 20.

  • Local Broker

    Either way the driver did something to make it flip. Is it easier to flip some cars more than others sure it is. I was not there so cant know exactly what happened but have a very good idea of what would cause it to happen.

  • BrooklynBus

    The SUV that I saw flip was caused by the other driver, not the SUV driver.

  • http://www.njluxurymotors.com Arthur Borko

    I’ve been in my share of accidents and they’ve all been caused by someone
    else and their poor skills. My skill and speed has saved my life numerous
    times.

  • brooklynTheCityOfLove

    From looking at the police report, no driver took blame.

    It is typical for drivers to blame everyone else around.

  • bagels

    What are you talking about? The drivers haven’t even seen the police report.

  • brooklynTheCityOfLove

    The police report was written the same day… Am not sure how soon it will be available for the drivers to pick up…

    They can bring $10 (no cash) to the station for a copy of it…

    Drive safe…

    Most women are bad drivers………Maybe you should put down the phone once in your life.

    And i don’t mean you directly, cause i don’t know you, but mostly i am tired of seeing women drivers with phones in their hands.
