A motorist ran a red on Sunday night, struck another vehicle and crashed into a fancy Downtown high-rise on Boerum Place, according to a witness.
The driver was heading north on State Street at 5:20 pm when her black Lincoln Navigator passed through a light and smashed into a Toyota Corolla heading west on Boerum Place, an onlooker said.
After drifting about 50 feet, the SUV slammed into a tree before hitting the scaffolding at the condominium Boulevard East.
“There was a huge rumble and it sounded like the whole scaffolding came down,” said Joe Stanfa, president of the condo’s board. “We’re just glad no pedestrians were hurt. There was smoke coming from the cars.”
Cops said the woman — who was pinned in her car and rescued with the Jaws of Life — would not be charged in the crash.
She and the man driving the Toyota were rushed to Bellevue Hospital for minor injuries.Reach Kate Briquelet at kbriquelet
