The accident happened Saturday at around 4 a.m. on 20th Avenue and Shore Boulevard just a mile from the fatal accident that killed the foursome of childhood friends. As the five pals reached the edge of 20th Avenue, the driver lost control of the 2010 Toyota which hit a metal fence and overturned into the East River, sources said. First responders arrived quickly but found all victims out of the water when they got there. The group of friendsTanuja Farma, 28, Carlos Ferreira, 28, Adeel Khan, 29, and Tony Lal, 35 were treated for minor injuries and released from Mt. Sinai Hospital of Queens, sources said. The occupants of the car told cops they had been at Club Central in Astoria and decided to stop by the nearby Neptune Diner, sources said. Bizarrely, the occupants of the vehicle told cops they had only met the alleged driver of the car at the club when he offered to be the designated driver for the group and take them to Neptune for some late-night grub. The man, identified only as Mike, fled the scene after the accident, the occupants of the car told police, according to sources. Khan, the vehicles registered owner, was not cooperating with police, sources said. He has a prior arrest for driving while intoxicated and at first gave cops a false name and date of birth.

Tuesday, crossed the curb, careened down the parkway, took out a street lamp, crashed into a parked car, and pushed it to the end of the block at Lincolnwood Drive, about a football-field-and-a-half away. The injured driver was taken to Evanston Hospital in a fire department ambulance. Her condition was not immediately known. She was the only occupant of the vehicle. Street lamp was torn from its base and carried several hundred feet down the parkway. At first, it appeared that the auto had crashed into two street lamps, but further investigation revealed that it was only one, and that the lamp itself was dragged by the auto almost to the end of the block. The car narrowly missed a car parked on the north side of the street as it proceeded down the parkway. Tire tracks reveal the path of the vehicle, which almost hit thisparked car. The path of the vehicle was readily apparent as a result of tire tracks which were visible from 2819 Lincoln, where it crossed the curb, to the vehicles final resting spot at 2923 Lincoln.

Witnesses Talk About ‘Scary’ Car Crash into Business | FOX8.com
The crash happened right around noon. It was just a loud crash, said Tiffany Przeracki, who was at a hair salon next to Coldwell Banker when the accident happened. Sounded like someone drove through the building. A passenger in the car involved in the crash told FOX 8 they were headed to lunch and got lost. She said they stopped at the business to ask for directions, when the drivers foot slipped off the brake and on to the gas pedal. The car went up on the sidewalk, and crashed into the business, knocking down the brick walls and glass windows. The car ended up inside the building, next to a desk and several chairs. Gail Wolf said she was at her desk working when she heard a loud bang. I could see it from my desk, Wolf said. I could see the car coming and it didnt look like it was going to stop. It just kept driving right through. It was just really scary. She said the first thing employees did was check to make sure everyone inside the car was OK. The driver and passenger both said they were fine, just a little shook up and embarrassed.
