NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Two pedestrians were seriously injured after a car crash in Brooklyn Wednesday morning.

The accident took place at around 10:30 a.m. at Pennsylvania and Cozine avenues in East New York.

Authorities said a woman making a left turn lost control of her car, striking two pedestrians and a livery sedan before coming to a stop a half-block away, 1010 WINS’ Mona Rivera reported.

A witness, named Amir, said a female pedestrian was dragged and pinned under the car.

He and other bystanders tried to help her.

“She wasn’t conscious so we weren’t sure if she was alive, we just saw her legs and knew it was bad,” Amir said. “If you see the jack underneath the car, we actually tried to jack the car up and noticed that we were dragging her as we jacked it up so we stopped.”

“The lady was horrified. She was traumatized and in shock,” another witness said.
