BEDFORD-STUYVESANT, Brooklyn — AIR11 was over the scene after a car slammed into sidewalk shedding along a Brooklyn street early Thursday.
According to police, a sedan was driving southbound on Nostrand Avenue, between Macon an Fulton streets, when it struck the structure around 2 a.m.
The collision caused about 70 linear feet of sidewalk shed to collapse, pancaking onto the street below, authorities said.
The driver was able to exit the vehicle without any injuries, police said. No injuries were reported on the street, either.
Due to the collapsed shed blocking the front entrance to several commercial buildings, the Department of Buildings issued Partial Vacate Orders at both 481 Nostrand Ave. and the neighboring building at 491 Nostrand Ave.
The orders will remain in effect until the collapsed sections of the sidewalk shed are removed and replaced, the DOB said.
It was not immediately clear what caused the vehicle to crash into the scaffolding.
