Sports Car Slams Into Garage, Lands In Yard


Trying to park her car inside a Middle Village garage proved dangerous for a woman who was injured after the vehicle lost control and crashed through the structure on Sunday afternoon, Aug. 10, it was reported. Fire Department sources said the incident occurred at around 4:35 p.m. at a residence on Eliot Avenue near 65th Street. As the victim attempted to move her red Ford Mustang inside the garage, it was reported, the accelerator became stuck, causing the car to plunge through the rear wall, over an adjacent garage and into a neighboring backyard. Members of Engine Company 291, Ladder Company 140, Rescue 4, the 104th Precinct, the NYPD Emergency Services Unit and EMS units responded to the scene. The woman was taken to a local hospital for treatment of minor injuries, said an FDNY spokesperson. (photo: Joseph Epstein)
