NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A car slammed into a children’s party center in the Bronx Sunday evening, sending three people to the hospital with serious injuries.

Police told 1010 WINS they responded around 6:30 p.m. to a crash at Baby Power Forever Kids, at 4266 White Plains Rd. in the Wakefield section of the Bronx.

A friend of the owner told CBS2 there was a party going on at the venue at the time of the accident.

Three party venue employees were taken to Montefiore Medical Center in serious, but stable, condition, officials said.

No children were injured in the accident.

It was not clear late Sunday what caused the driver to lose control.

  1. Driver error. In no way is this a “brake” issue.

  2. Lost control my eye. The driver wasn’t paying attention.

    Another right foot pedal error, part of the right foot braking epidemic? But let’s make sure we blame the driver, especially if they are a women or old. Never blame the guys in charge of driver legislation and training who set the driver up to fail. They forced this driver to brake an automatic transmission vehicle with only the right foot. They did this knowing they had 0 Scientific Justification and that right foot braking is too complicated and difficult to mentally maintain with age, inefficient (poor reaction time) and dangerous (subject to right foot pedal error) compared to the simpler and safer (But girly!) left foot braking method. See DOT HS 811 597, 812 058and 812 431. NHTSA refuses to use the term “right foot pedal errors” but instead calls it “pedal misapplication” and always blames the drivers for not being experts. Score to date, 150,000 dead (7 Every Day), millions injured, and billions in costs. The price male drivers, both in and out of government, are prepared to pay to maintain their systemic belief in a braking method based on the scientific foundation of, “That’s the way it’s always been taught”! This is not about which braking method is safer but rather why they refuse to scientifically compare the two methods and continue to produce misinformation about other proposed braking methods. Was it driver error or the way we taught them to brake?
