An 82-year-old man suffered serious injuries after he lost control of his car and it ran off the road and careened through the air, landing upside-down in a Bay Ridge park on Feb. 27, police said.

The authorities said the senior was at the intersection of Shore Road and 3rd Avenue when he lost control of his vehicle at 7:04 pm. The man crashed through a fence and a tree before the vehicle finally landed upside-down on a jogging path in Shore Road Park.

The driver sustained injures to his head, hips, and ribs, according to a police spokeswoman, who said the man was transported to Lutheran Medical Center in serious condition.
