Two women pushing their children in strollers were struck by a car after a stolen Chevy Tahoe SUV sent another vehicle careening into them in a collision in East Flatbush, Brooklyn on Monday morning, police said. Only one woman was injured from the incident while the other women and all of the children were unharmed, officials said.
The mother of a 2-year-old boy was taken to a Kings County Hospital and was listed in critical condition, police said. The victim’s son was taken to the same hospital where he was listed in critical condition “as a precaution,” officials said. A babysitter and a 10-month-old boy were also taken to the hospital although they were listed in the stable condition, police said.
The driver of the Pathfinder was taken to Brookdale Hospital in stable condition, police said.
According to police, Stephen Brumaire, 18, was being pursued by a patrol car after he ran a red light in a stolen grey 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe at Remsen Avenue and Winthrop Street. The chase ended when he hit a Nissan Pathfinder at the intersection of Remsen Avenue and Rutland Road. The collision sent the car over the curb and into the mother and her son. The vehicle narrowly missed the babysitter and the 10-month-old boy.
Brumaire tried to flee, but he was apprehended at the scene, officials said. He was charged with possession of stolen property, grand larceny and unauthorized use of a vehicle, according to reports.
