3 injured in crash outside Brooklyn restaurant

Sometimes people wind up getting into motor vehicle accidents that are at least partially their fault. The driver may have rolled through an intersection and struck the car whose driver had the right of way. A pedestrian may have stepped off too quickly into the street before the line of cars fully passed. A cyclist may have been riding the wrong way against traffic.

But for some of the recent outdoor patrons at one Brooklyn eatery, there was nothing that they did that contributed to their being struck by a pickup truck as they dined street-side on July 21.

Events unfolded outside L'Wren, located in Brooklyn's Sunset Park, as patrons were eating at tables placed in special seating areas outside of the restaurant in order to comply with the present restrictions. Had there not been a sturdy physical barrier erected for full compliance, the three people who were hurt might have been injured much more extensively.

The driver broke through the barrier and knocked the patrons to the ground, along with some of the street-side tables. Media affiliate WABC showed surveillance footage from inside the restaurant that captured the moment of the accident.

The 22-year-old driver of the pickup attempted to flee the scene of the Brooklyn accident but was flagged down by bystanders. He was cited by police for operating a vehicle without a license.

Accidents happen suddenly, with little warning or time for evasive actions. If you are injured in a motor vehicle accident either as a motorist, passenger, pedestrian or cyclist and the accident was caused by another person's negligence, you have the right to seek financial compensation for your injuries and other damages and losses.
