BROOKLYN - All lanes on the Brooklyn Bridge have reopen after a multi-car accident that sent several people to the hospital.

Police say a black Honda with four passengers was disabled in the right lane and a silver livery cab was in the middle lane, when the driver of a Lexus came flying through.

The passenger in the Lexus was ejected from the vehicle and taken to the hospital in critical condition.

All four people in the Honda were also taken to hospitals with minor injuries.
