A woman was killed and her son critically injured in a traffic accident on Seaview Avenue in Canarsie on June 12.
Shaena Sinclair of Canarsie was walking on the sidewalk with her 6-year-old son at the intersection of Remsen and Seaview avenues around 8:50 pm when the driver of a Toyota sport-utility vehicle slammed into the passenger side of a Honda sedan making a left turn onto Remsen Avenue, police said. That crash made the driver of the Honda lose control, jump the curb, and then slam into Sinclair and her son on the sidewalk, according to cops.
Paramedics found Sinclair unconscious and unresponsive, and her son conscious but with a head injury. Both were rushed to Brookdale Hospital, where Sinclair was pronounced dead and he son was listed in critical condition, authorities said.
“The 6-year-old was listed in critical but stable condition, with a head injury,” said a police spokesman.
The incident is under investigation by the Police Department’s Collision Investigation Squad, and there have been no arrests, the spokesman said.
