Five yahoos in a black BMW packing a pair of pistols led cops on a car chase through Dyker Heights that ended in a wreck on Sept. 9, according to police.

It started at 5 am on Staten Island, when a woman also in the car called a relative saying she feared for her life, and the relation called 911 and described the car, according to police.

Officers tried to pull the driver over, but he fled — eventually crossing the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge into Brooklyn, department officials said. The chase ended when the driver smashed into two other vehicles at 65th Street and 10th Avenue, littering the intersection with shredded car parts.

The men fled from the wreckage, and officers pursued, catching one immediately and collaring two others after a search of the area — but two remain at large, law enforcement sources said. The woman stayed behind — police are questioning her but she has not been charged, according to officials.

Cops discovered two semi-automatic handguns inside the car, department officials said.

There were minor injuries, but no one went to the hospital, according to police.
