2 killed as car slams into train-track stanchion in Brooklyn

Police say an out-of-control car has smashed into a subway-style pillar in Brooklyn, killing two people and injuring two others.


The crash happened early Sunday on Atlantic Avenue in the Bedford-Stuyvesant area. Two passengers died at the crash site, 25-year-old Naquana Kilpatrick and 17-year-old Gilberto Howard.


The 19-year-old man who was driving is hospitalized in critical condition. A third passenger, a woman, is in stable condition. They were not identified.


It's not clear why the car spun out of control. It slammed into a stanchion under an elevated train track at Atlantic and Buffalo avenues around 12:30 a.m.


Police say the subway system wasn't affected.
