NEW YORK — An ambulance slammed into a young woman as she crossed a Brooklyn street on Wednesday afternoon, leaving her underneath the vehicle, authorities and witnesses said.
Witness Arthur Shlyakman, 21, said the victim, whom he estimated to be about 18, screamed as the ambulance struck her.
She was on Avenue X in Sheepshead Bay and rushing to make it across Coney Island Ave. as the “Don’t Cross” light was flashing, he said. At the same time, the ambulance was coming from the opposite side of Avenue X, turning right onto Coney Island Ave.
