A car wreck horrified bystanders in Manhattan when a Honda blew multiple red lights and crashed into a Department of Transportation tractor-trailer just after 2 a.m. on Third Avenue, witnesses said Wednesday morning.
Two men — one who flatlined at the scene but...
Four people were injured, one very seriously, when the Honda Civic sedan wound up lodged under the cab of the mammoth rig, its top sheared off, officials said.
“[The] Honda was going at least a hundred miles an hour — running red lights, going uptown on Third — when he got to the corner of 34th, the truck had the green light and just ran right into the Honda. He must have been going at least 120 miles an hour,” said Donald Johnson, the manager at Insomina Cookies.
Ell Ian, a customer at a hookah lounge across from the scene in Murray Hill, rushed over and tried to help the driver and passenger before EMS arrived.
“We tried to wake them up, we said, ‘Wake up, wake up, you’re going to be OK.’ There were two males, Asian guys. … there was a lot of blood, blood all over, especially the driver — his chest, his face, his tongue.
“The Honda was coming from Third and the truck was coming down, the truck hit the Honda and then hit a yellow cab. I thought it was going to blow up. Crazy, just crazy, man.”
“This is crazy, damn kids.”
Fire Department officials said they received a call at approximately 2:28 a.m., and transported four patients to Bellevue Hospital.
