A mother is dead and her 6-year-old son badly hurt when a crash sent a car screaming into a Brooklyn bus stop where the woman and child were standing Tuesday night.
Police say two cars crashed around 8:45 p.m. in front of Remsen and Seaview avenues in Canarsie, sending one of the cars over the curb. The car that jumped the curb ended up smashing into 33-year-old Shaena Sinclair and her young son Jayvon. Sinclair lived only a few houses away from the bus stop.
The two victims were taken to a hospital, where Sinclair was pronounced dead. The 6-year-old child suffered a head injury and is in serious but stable condition, officials said.
Video from the scene shows a black SUV sitting in the middle of the road while a white car on the sidewalk, partially through a fence.
The drivers of both cars, a 61-year-old and a 21-year-old, stayed at the scene. The younger driver had a green light and was making a left turn when the older driver, who also had a green light, hit the turning vehicle, police said.
No arrests have been made and police say they are still investigating.
