Three passengers were killed in a tragic car accident in Brooklyn on Sunday morning.
The vehicle crashed into a tree on a median near the start of the Belt Parkway and immediately burst into flames, making it impossible for the victims to escape.
The car was severely damaged and unrecognizable as it was towed away from the scene.
One man and two women lost their lives in the fiery crash, while a fourth passenger survived and was taken to the hospital in stable condition.
The Belt Parkway entrance in Bay Ridge remained closed for several hours as investigators worked to extract the victims from the wreckage.
Onlookers expressed shock and disbelief at the horrific scene, with some mentioning that this stretch of road has a history of accidents.
Concerns were raised about the lack of sufficient lighting and clear signage, contributing to the dangerous conditions.
A local resident named Nelson Costco highlighted the issue of speeding in the area, sharing his personal experience of avoiding the Belt Parkway altogether after witnessing four accidents in just five years.
The authorities have not yet released the identities of the victims involved in the tragic crash.
The investigation into the incident is ongoing.
