    A pedestrian in a crosswalk was killed when she was struck by a car that spun out of control after it collided with another car in Brooklyn, police said.

    The 63-year-old woman was in the crosswalk on Avenue N at Coney Island Avenue Saturday afternoon when a Ford Fiesta, driven by a 29-year-old man, struck a Mitsubishi SUV in the intersection.

    Police say both cars began to spin, and the Ford hit the pedestrian.

    The spinning cars kept going and hit a third car.

    None of the drivers were hurt.
