The roof was destroyed and the windows were shattered on the Toyota Prius. A pedestrian was taken away in an ambulance with an eye injury sustained from flying debris…In a scene that was eerily reminiscent of a similar incident from years ago when construction material fell onto a local lawyer, killing him on Court Street, pedestrians and passers-by were startled by the loud impact and the sound of shattered glass…”–Brooklyn Eagle
