A man died early Saturday after he slammed his car into another vehicle in an intersection in the Gravesend section of Brooklyn, injuring his three passengers and killing the two people in the other car.
Police say Jonathan Ishan-Sade, 21, was speeding east on Avenue U in a Honda Acura when he collided with a Toyota Camry traveling north on East Fifth Street around 2 a.m.
Both people in the Camry — 26-year-old driver Andre Capers-Jones and 24-year-old passenger Leonora Lavaud — were killed.
The three passengers in the Acura — a man in critical condition and two women in stable condition — were brought to Lutheran Medical Center in Brooklyn for treatment.
The accident's impact caused Ishan-Sade to strike two parked cars and the Camry hit an MTA bus.
"One of the girls, Rachel, she was getting surgery on her right leg. She had open fractures and closed fractures. And the other friend, Dimitry, he's on life support. He has a breathing tube down his throat," said Nick Castello, a friend of the injured victims. "When I went in there to check up on them, one of the nurses said Dimitry woke up and was trying to take the breathing tube out, so they sedated him."
Ishan-Sade, Capers-Jones and Lavaud were all residents of Brooklyn.
