NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – An elderly man suffered minor injuries after driving into a construction zone in Brooklyn Wednesday morning.

The car went through a barricade and into a trench at Avenue V and Bedford Ave just before noon in Sheepshead Bay.

The car plunged into a trench and had to be hoisted out by a crane.

The driver, 89, was pulled out and taken to the hospital in good condition.

The road was closed to allow for worn on the sewer system, officials said. No workers were injured.
