According to reports from police, the accident impact was so severe and one of the cars is said to have split in half after it hit a utility pole. The two people who died were traveling in a Nissan Maxima which was heading south in Marine Park at around 6:30 pm. The Nissan is said to have hit a BMW which was turning onto the Avenue u coming from Flatbush Avenue according to the police reports.

It was not clear which car had the right of way or what colors were the security lights at the time of the accident. However, a video from surveillance which had captured the crash showed that the Maxima vehicle was going at a higher speed than the other cars before it hit the BMW.
